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 stack of open-source, decentralized software and standards enabling market participants to digitally orchestrate low-carbon electricity systems.
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.
EW Zero is an open-source app that enables any renewable energy buyer to find and source procurement options from across a wide variety of digital marketplaces globally. Zero integrates myriad marketplaces—including those built with EW Origin—through a single, convenient, digital interface.
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.
The EW Registry suite of middleware and SDKs is based on decentralized identifiers (DIDs)—“digital passports” assigned to prosumers, grid operators, energy suppliers, OEMs, and others, as well as their DERs, EVs, IoT devices, and other assets. DIDs get logged in Energy Web's ID Directory, and in turn can be listed in one or more application registries.
