The Energy Web Decentralized Operating System (EW-DOS) is an open-source stack of decentralized software and standards—including the Energy Web Chain, middleware services, and 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. 


EW Switchboard logo
EW Switchboard is a first-of-its-kind open-source identity and access management (IAM) tool for users, assets, and application developers in today’s growing self-sovereign approach to digital solutions. Switchboard leverages SSIs, DIDs, and VCs for authentication, authorization, and accounting.
EW Zero logo
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.

Core Tech

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 enables 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 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.

Bug Bounty Program

The Energy Web Bug Bounty Program exists to incentivize and reward members of the community who identify and help resolve security vulnerabilities in EW-DOS, including the EW Chain, utility Layer, software development toolkits, and auxiliary EW-related tools and digital infrastructure.
The Energy Web is accelerating a low-carbon, customer-centric electricity system by unleashing the potential of open-source, decentralized, digital technologies.

Per @CanaryMediaInc, the @gridwisedc Alliance is calling for $50 billion in U.S.... federal funding to support tech for flexibility at the grid edge, grid modernization, and electric vehicle integration. We know a tech stack that can help with that. 😉

I encourage all @energywebx members with a presence in the U.S. to engage with ... @ENERGY around participating in this important research, inform forthcoming reports/guidance, and determine how best to implement #opensource digital infrastructure supporting the #EnergyTransition⚡️🔌

In the 2021 U.S. budget: “The Committee directs the Department to coordinate ... research on the opportunity and needs for new digital solutions built with public, open-source decentralized technologies to support electric grid modernization efforts.” 👀

The World Economic Forum (@wef) names "5 innovators making the #electricvehicle ... battery more sustainable." The list includes the Global Battery Alliance, whose partners include #EnergyWeb members @VWGroup and @envisioncn. 🔋🌱 #WeAreTheEnergyWeb

"What we’re trying to do here is not about a single company, we want the whole... industry to go green as early as 2025." 🪙⚡️🌱
