What is an Energy Web Chain?

Validators of Energy Web Chain

Proof of Authority approach of Energy Web

3 layers of Energy Web — Decentralized Operating System (EW-DOS)

3 layers of EW-DOS

Trust layer — Energy Web Chain

Utility layer — the middleware layer

  • Energy Web Name Service (EWNS) — simplifying managing of DIDs (Decentralized Identifiers)
  • DID (Decentralized Identifiers) Key Recovery
  • Transaction Relay — enables users to interact with EW Chain without dealing with EWT
  • Bridges —connection with other blockchains such as Ethereum (EWTB, DAI for this moment)
  • Oracles — connecting on-chain data (from blockchains) with the data from the outside world
  • Other Chain Abstraction — API generator for communication between on-chain identities and off-chain data
  • Identity Directory —a smart contract with a list of DIDs and associated claims and other data
  • Messaging — high-volume communications that do not rely on blockchain transactions
  • Storage — scalable data storage on blockchain both non-editable (content-addressed) and key-value data (like the reference of the latest version of an app).

Toolkit layer

Energy Web Origin

Energy Web Flex

Energy Web usecases

  • simplifying traceability of clean energy and carbon emissions
  • increasing grid flexibility by using distributed energy resources
  • enabling developers to build applications built on foundations of energy web decentralized operation system
  • issuing energy attribute certificates (EACs) for proving that renewables such as solar, wind or hydro have generated a specific volume of electricity in a certain place at a certain time

Energy Web Applications

Energy Web Token

  • paying for transaction fees that then goes to validators and the community fund,
  • protecting the network against misbehavior.
