The Energy Web Foundation fosters value creation in the energy sector by building and promoting an open, decentralized software infrastructure built around blockchain technology.
In 2019 EW launched the Energy Web Chain, the world’s first open-source, enterprise blockchain platform tailored to the energy sector. EW’s technology roadmap has since grown into the Energy Web Decentralized Operating System (EW-DOS), a full stack that includes front-end applications and a variety of software development toolkits. EW also grew the world’s largest energy-sector ecosystem—comprising utilities, grid operators, renewable energy developers, corporate energy buyers, and others—focused on open-source, decentralized digital technologies.
Energy Web objectives are:
– Develop an ecosystem of users, application developers and infrastructure providers.
– Work jointly to identify and assess blockchain use cases in energy.
– Build an open source IT infrastructure upon which these use cases can be implemented.
– Educate regulators and other stakeholders and provide input to standardization bodies.
