The challenge for the Energy Industry
By 2030 customer investment in renewable energy, distributed energy resources (DERs), and electric mobility will exceed utility investment in generation, transmission, and distribution. But today’s power grids and electricity markets are not designed for a customer-centric future.
  • Renewable generation will comprise an estimated 50–80% of overall capacity in the coming decades, largely replacing aging thermal generation assets. This alone represents the most dramatic shift in the electricity sector since the advent of alternating current.

  • Customers are driving the transition to a decarbonized, distributed electricity system quickly and at scale: in the next 10 years, electricity end-users will spend a cumulative $830B on DERs and $7T on electric vehicles.

  • By 2030, roughly a third of global installed capacity will reside “behind the meter., representing an estimated 3.5 billion internet-connected DERs are expected to integrate with existing electric grids.

Taken together, customer-owned assets can form the basis of decarbonized, flexible, resilient energy systems the world-over. But there’s a fundamental problem: today’s electricity markets are not equipped to handle the coming wave of device interconnections.
  • Everything about today’s electricity markets—from the rules governing asset qualification, to the way prices are set, to the systems used to monitor and manage the grid—assumes that supply is controllable, demand is fixed, and grid investment is a centralized function driven by grid operators. These assumptions are no longer valid.

  • Modern, low-carbon grids are inherently distributed, variable, and diverse. Investment in renewables, DERs, and electric vehicles is taking place in a naturally decentralized way; power can be generated and distributed locally as easily as it is across vast distances.

  • In our current environment, asset and customer information is fragmented across multiple siloed systems and is often invisible to grid operators. Consequently, many assets remain largely isolated from core system planning and operation functions, and DERs in particular are chronically underutilized and frequently fail to capture their full potential value.

We need a common digital infrastructure to coordinate the millions of diverse clean energy resources, customers, and organizations comprising modern grids.
  • Open, public, digital infrastructure will be as integral as physical infrastructure for the secure, reliable operation of a highly decarbonized and distributed electricity grid. Just as grid operators have built and operated the grid’s physical infrastructure over the past century, our vision is for grid operators to invest in, build, and operate digital systems that securely integrate millions and eventually billions of customer-owned DERs into core operation and planning functions.

Our mission is to develop and deploy open-source decentralized technologies and standards to meet global requirements for establishing identity, enforcing rules, and facilitating transactions between billions of DERs, customers, utilities, service providers, and grid operators.
Challenges for Energy Suppliers
Energy suppliers need to efficiently and accurately offer low-carbon energy solutions at different scales to different types of customers.
Energy suppliers need to constantly look for additional revenue streams to stay competitive.
Energy suppliers need to provide attractive, credible and verifiable low-carbon offerings.
Solutions
With the EW Stack, energy suppliers can build end-to-end solutions to cost-efficiently digitize renewable energy assets, organizations and users; track the origin of renewable energy at different level of granularity; enable trading of energy attributes; match renewable energy generation with consumption; and provide detailed and verifiable information to all participating stakeholders.
Energy suppliers can mix and match different EW-DOS components, for example, to provide transparency platforms for 24/7 clean energy or to enable spot-market exchange of green energy attributes - all to increase the sale of renewable energy.
EW-DOS helps energy suppliers offer additional products and value to their customers of any size by tracking green energy supply at highest granularity and necessary proofs.
With EW-DOS, energy suppliers can:
  • Track their low-carbon energy supply at highest granularity and provide customers with necessary proofs

  • Increase customer loyalty by enhancing low-carbon energy product offerings (e.g. clean energy on 24/7 level)

  • Reach a wider base of customers by creating new value propositions (e.g. green energy supply for cryptomining facilities)

  • Replicate the offerings in any market and segment by benefitting from interoperability of the digital infrastructure

  • Decrease long-term costs by leveraging existing open-source digital infrastructure
