The Energy Web Foundation (EWF) is a global non-profit organization focused on accelerating blockchain technology across the energy sector.
Blockchain technology has the potential to reduce transaction costs in the energy sector, enable active participation of a larger number of market participants (consumers and devices) and, as a consequence, accelerate the transition towards a cleaner, more resilient, and more cost effective system.
To unleash this potential, EWF will a) identify, document, and assess the most promising use cases of blockchain technology in the energy sector and b) launch a new energy-focused blockchain platform (“Energy Web Platform”) that provides the functionalities needed to implement these use cases at scale.
The intent of EWF, through its Energy Web Platform, is to develop a market standard that ensures interoperability, reduces costs and complexity, aligns currently dispersed blockchain initiatives, and facilitates technology deployment through easy-to-implement applications.
EWF is convening an ecosystem of users, developers and infrastructure providers to collaborate on implementation projects at the nexus of blockchain and energy.
EWF’s activities are funded by corporate Affiliates – a set of leading companies from across the energy sector. Corporate Affiliates receive privileged access to our research, technology, education efforts, and ecosystem.
