The Energy Web community is the world’s largest open-source, decentralized ecosystem looking at ways to leverage blockchain technology for the energy sector. It consists of the Energy Web Chain, a first-of-its-kind public, enterprise-grade blockchain network that the energy industry can use to create and deploy completely customized decentralized apps.
The Energy Web Decentralized Operating System (EW-DOS) is an open-source, multi-layer digital infrastructure based on the Energy Web Chain blockchain. The project focuses on supporting a low-carbon, customer-centric energy future powered by decentralized technology.
The Energy Web ecosystem also offers the Energy Web Stack or EW-STACK, a set of open-source tools built on the Energy Web Chain, which can be used to develop decentralized apps (dApps) to support enterprise-grade applications for businesses in the energy sector. As of August 2021, the initiative has already forged more than 100 partnerships across 21 countries and supports 50 projects.
The Energy Web Token is the native digital asset of the Energy Web Chain. It is used to pay transaction fees while interacting with dApps within the EW ecosystem and can also be staked by validator nodes to help secure the network.
