The Energy Web Decentralized Operating System (EW-DOS) is an open-source stack of decentralized software and standards—including the Energy Web Chain and various software development toolkits (SDKs). EW-DOS is the grid’s new digital DNA, a shared technology running on a decentralized network maintained by some of the world’s most-respected energy companies.
EW-DOS supports two primary use cases: 1) clean energy and carbon emissions traceability and 2) using distributed energy resources to increase grid flexibility. EW-DOS leverages self-sovereign decentralized identifiers, a series of decentralized registries, messaging services, and integrations with legacy information technology (IT) systems to facilitate transactions between billions of assets, customers, grid operators, service providers, and retailers.
EW-DOS is our vision for a stack of open-source software and standards enabling market participants to digitally orchestrate low-carbon electricity systems. It is a 'blockchain-plus' approach that includes the Energy Web Chain and other core digital infrastructure, SDKs such as EW Origin and EW Flexhub, and a variety of decentralized but off-chain solutions and legacy IT integrations.
Dive deeper and take a closer look at some of the key components of EW-DOS.
The Energy Web Chain is a public, enterprise-grade blockchain platform specifically designed for the energy sector’s regulatory, operational, and market needs. Launched in mid-2019, it has become the industry’s leading choice as the foundational digital infrastructure on which to build and run dApps.
The EW Origin suite of SDKs supports existing and emerging renewable energy and carbon markets to simplify and enhance the issuance, tracking, and buying/selling of energy attribute certificates (EACs), including renewable energy certificates (RECs), guarantees of origin (GOs), and international I-RECs.
The EW Flex suite of SDKs enable grid operators—including vertically integrated utilities, distribution system operators (DSOs), and transmission system operators (TSOs)—to integrate distributed energy resources (DERs) into energy markets and demand flexibility programs.
