From virtual forums to live-streamed AMAs, the community remained strong

Connecting & Growing the Community

Community is at the heart of the Energy Web ecosystem. Our diverse membership may come from different companies and countries, but they each share a commitment to open innovation. When the global pandemic struck in early 2020, travel and in-person events halted, but it's been incredible to see how the community has continued to strengthen through virtual events, ranging from member forums, to technology webinars, to member project spotlights.

IntellectEU Leverages EW Tech Stack to Win Vattenfall’s ‘Balance the Grid’ Challenge at Odyssey Momentum Hackathon

Swedish multinational energy company Vattenfall has committed to “fossil-free living within one generation.” For the Odyssey Momentum challenge, Vattenfall asked applications to address “the challenge of incentivizing consumers to communicate energy demand and production to allow all stakeholders to balance the grid.” IntellectEU built its winning submission atop the EW tech stack, using SDKs that support the registration, clearing, dispatch, and settlement of millions of assets in power markets.

A Community Like No Other

From our membership team, to our board, to the moderators of our Telegram and other social channels, to third-party users creating great Energy Web content, we're honored to have a global community like no other in the energy sector.

The Energy Web Chain's First Birthday

Halfway through 2020, the Energy Web Chain turned one year old!  Naturally, we celebrated the only way a community should: by coming together (virtually) to sing a rendition of 'Happy Birthday'!
