POWR Project Escrow Report 2

POWR Project Escrow Report 2 (January 1, 2019 – June 30, 2019)IntroductionThe POWR token plays an important role in the adoption of Power Ledger’s technology. The more users we onboard and the more partnerships we enter into, the more the token economy will drive the demand for POWR.There are only 1 billion POWR tokens in existence, and there will never be more created, and only a portion of those, or less than half, are currently in circulation.When our partners want to gain access to the suite of products Power Ledger developed, a license fee must be paid in the form of escrowed POWR tokens. This mechanism means that as Power Ledger’s technology gains market adoption, the competition for outstanding POWR tokens heats us as fewer are left in circulation with multiple partners competing for the ones that remain.Previous POWR Project Escrow ReportWe release POWR Project Escrow Reports periodically, detailing the total amount of POWR being held in escrow for active projects. The reason for releasing this report periodically is so that the community can see the growing number of POWR tokens locked up in escrow as the number of Power Ledger’s partnerships and the instances of Power Ledger technology increase.The first POWR Project Escrow Report saw 533,066 POWR escrowed and represent a license fee payable by our partners for projects on boarded up to 31 December 2018. The escrowed POWR tokens are visible at the following address, 0x3DD7719ab702282F3972b88e4B372C6aFCC4b7eC, which can be accessed via any Ethereum blockchain explorer, like etherscan.io, for example.This POWR Project Escrow ReportThis is the second POWR Project Escrow Report that details POWR escrowed for projects added between 1 January 2019 and 30 June 2019. However bear in mind that not all recently announced partnerships are reflected in this report. For example, we recently announced a partnership with Clearway to develop a market for trading renewable energy certificates in the United States.The announcement of this partnership in late June meant that the positive impact of reducing POWR circulating supply will be felt later and reflected in subsequent POWR Escrow Reports.POWR tokens escrowed for projects onboarded over the past 6 months are 172,000 with:172,000 funded by our project partners, meaning that POWR was purchased from the market, directly reducing the circulating supply, and0 were topped up by Power Ledger from the Growth Pool.In combination with POWR escrowed previously, POWR escrowed for Projects now totals 705,066.POWR Project Escrow Report 2 was originally published in Power Ledger on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Power Ledger co-founder and chairman Dr Jemma Green joined a panel discussion on Facebook’s Libra cryptocurrency and the impact this could have on the finance industry.Held at the Blockchain Centre Perth, Dr Green said Facebook’s accessibility and user base lent itself to helping the unbanked.“Financial inclusion is one of the sustainable development goals. If you wanted to use the member base of Facebook that is unbanked you could achieve that. It’s just a question of any perverse outcomes that could occur,” said Dr Green.The panelists said Libra had been given a good head start in terms of user adoption, considering Facebook had about 2.4 billion monthly active users.“It’s good news for all the real blockchain projects out there because it’s actually legitimising the industry and creating a narrative that this is something the largest companies in the world are doing,” said Dr Green.ModeratorDavid Beros, DigitalX Ltd Head of ProductPanelistsScott Waller, Oceania Assurance Blockchain Leader at Ernst & YoungPhil George, Bamboo CEOLeigh Travers, DigitalX Ltd CEOWatch the full panel discussion below.https://medium.com/media/95823080e6a407f04b8849fc8b7c1964/hrefOriginally published at https://www.powerledger.io.What does Facebook Libra mean for cryptocurrency? was originally published in Power Ledger on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Why technology is placing c...

By Co-founder and Director David MartinCatering to the ever-changing consumer landscape is like tearing around a Formula One race track.In F1 you need to be going at top speed to maintain enough traction to keep you on the track.In order to transform your business, you need speed, agility and split-second timing to navigate the changing landscapes of technology and consumer demand.Some businesses are never headed on the way to the chequered flag, others run off the track at the first turn and end up in the graveyard of once booming businesses who have been left behind.Amongst the wreckage you’ll find Blockbuster, which filed for bankruptcy in 2010 — a few years after it turned down a deal with global streaming platform Netflix, then in its infancy but now with a market cap of roughly US$131 billion.It’s an example of how adjusting quickly to consumer preferences is key for survival.And that adage where ‘Customer is King’ has never been more important in a world where business opportunities are becoming increasingly liberalised and the benefits commoditised.With Uber you can now become a taxi business — you can even use your own car.You also don’t need to invest millions into a fancy hotel to become a hotelier; your guest bedroom will easily suffice, thanks to Airbnb.With technology advancing at a rapid rate, no industry is immune to change.So how can we best navigate the evolving consumer market to prevent our business from crashing?The Customer Is Always RightIt’s a motto that has divided the business world since the early 1900s, when first spoken by Harry Gordon Selfridge, the founder of Selfridges department store.Hate it or love it, in 2019 you certainly need to have the consumer experience top of mind.Apple is one tech company who knows this better than most, last month deciding to kill off its iTunes offering after 18 years.Like the movie industry, most people are happy to stream music without necessarily having to physically ‘own it’.So the company is looking to concentrate its efforts on its streaming subscription service Apple Music.Apple is one of those companies that understands the need to put innovation at their core, instead of seeing it as a chore.Sure, the organisation is full of tech heads, so innovation is arguably a part of their every day.But even traditional industries with well-established models are starting to take notice, building innovation hubs and incubator arms into their business.Embrace ChangeJust as preferences for watching movies and listening to music have changed — so too has energy consumption.At the recent London Tech Week I witnessed how some of the world’s most prestigious brands are acknowledging that the systems, processes and cultural attributes that have led to their success aren’t necessarily aligned with achieving success in the future.Rolls-Royce, which spoke at the event, acknowledge they’re bloody hard to work with if you’re a tech startup and that the clash of cultures can be fatal for startups who can’t survive “the long maybe…” from even the most well-intentioned corporates looking to bring new technology and new thinking into their operations.Rolls-Royce is one of a handful of large corporations trying to make it easier to collaborate with tech startups, so they don’t inadvertently stifle innovation by killing innovators with their internal bureaucracy.The company has its own innovation engagement group and is currently exploring a whole host of initiatives including its ability to engage with entrepreneurs from outside of the business. It’s an interesting transformation to exploring a broad range of new technologies and capabilities, considering Rolls-Royce started out as a motor car business in 1906.Austrian utilities company Energie Steiermark is another organisation that has created an innovation arm; E-NEXT with the NEXT-Incubator.Last month E-NEXT launched a peer-to-peer energy trading project with Power Ledger, to enable select households in the city of Graz to trade solar energy with their neighbours.https://medium.com/media/6a4960c75723090eefcce398091aaabd/hrefThe emergence of distributed energy resources (DERs) has forced utilities to consider a new model where the industry moves from its centralised state to one where ‘the four D’s’ dominate; decarbonised, digitalised and, increasingly, democratised.High-cost and high-carbon outcomes have been an entrenched factor of energy system design and consumer investment in distributed solar is a reaction to this. Now, we are seeing that investment also move into energy storage.Most modern utilities are responding to this challenge and are now looking at how they integrate DERs into modern systems and market designs but they’re looking at the symptom, not the cause.Comfort, cost, carbon and controlConsumers don’t want to think about electricity in terms of kilowatt hours and tariffs, they want a lifestyle choice.Consumer energy buying preferences are a mix not just of “four D’s” but “four C’s” — comfort, cost, carbon and control.The value proposition is a balance of considerations that include a range of unfolding possibilities which have never been a part of the energy industry’s thinking.For example; how does the sharing-economy influence a consumer’s energy needs?How do we incorporate the possibilities of wireless electricity transmission that’s made possible through shared electric vehicles and mobile distributed storage?Distributed energy services are fundamentally tradable meaning that consumer choice becomes a commodity to be traded between consumers.As an esteemed panelist at Event Horizon said: our energy system has traditionally been socialised with the benefits politicised; but now solar energy and technology, such as DERs are liberalising the market, just like Uber and AirBnB, where you don’t have to be a massive electricity company to commoditise energy.There is now an emerging opportunity for energy products and services to be liberalised, with the benefits commoditised — anyone with a solar panel can participate in the market and commoditize their solar power, and those that don’t have the means for solar infrastructure can still opt for clean energy.Act NowThere are still utility companies that see innovation as a chore, with internal bureaucracy, legacy assets and traditional thinking stifling the ability to present new options to consumers.The future energy market is shaping out to be increasingly designed and deployed by consumers.To prosper, all energy market players will need to ensure they can nimbly adjust to provide new offerings as more technologies emerge and consumer preference continues to evolve.Or face the risk of being forever stuck on the starting grid watching everyone else disappear around the first bend.Originally published at https://www.powerledger.io.Why technology is placing consumers in the driver’s seat of energy transformation was originally published in Power Ledger on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Power Ledger to roll out di...

Power Ledger to roll out digital commodity trading software in the United States through Clearway partnershipPower Ledger has announced a partnership with renewable energy developer, owner, and operator Clearway Energy Group (“Clearway”) to develop a platform to trade Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) in the United States.In at least 29 U.S. states, electricity companies are required to supply a portion of their electricity from renewable sources each year. Many companies purchase RECs as a way of meeting their mandatory clean energy quotas.RECs are tradable commodities that represent proof that one megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity was generated from an eligible renewable energy resource.“Power Ledger is applying our proprietary technology to the evolving market for trading digital energy commodities. This is a market that’s often criticized for being opaque, but blockchain technology will make it more efficient, secure, and provide greater transparency,” said Power Ledger executive chairman and co-founder Dr. Jemma Green.“We will be able to track RECs on a blockchain ledger system from the point of creation, sale and transfer to the buyer, through to the point of retirement of the certificate and the annual sustainability audit.”Power Ledger’s partnership with Clearway will ensure a swift entry into the environmental commodity trading market in the U.S. due to Clearway’s established footprint of renewable energy assets across the country.“We believe blockchain trading technology can significantly improve the efficiency of the market for RECs in the U.S. by linking transactional functions within a common platform,” said Clearway Energy Group vice president of asset management Monique Menconi.“We are excited to partner with Power Ledger to deliver a fully integrated, scalable, and low-cost solution.”The market for RECs in the United States covers both compliance and voluntary markets and is estimated to be worth over $3 billion annually.“Whether companies are voluntarily meeting clean energy commitments or satisfying regulatory requirements, there is a need to ensure that renewable energy credits are being properly allocated,” said Dr Green.“Power Ledger’s environmental attribute tracking platform will provide certainty to both buyers and sellers in this evolving market to give confidence that energy from renewable sources is indeed displacing energy produced by fossil fuels.”Power Ledger is an innovative technology company that has developed proprietary blockchain-enabled energy trading software. The company’s technology is currently being trialed by energy operators in Australia, Thailand, Japan, and the United States.Originally published at https://www.powerledger.io.Power Ledger to roll out digital commodity trading software in the United States through Clearway… was originally published in Power Ledger on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

190607 AMA session with Dr....

Power Ledger co-founder and chair Dr. Jemma Green1) Thailand recently announced a 100MW solar trading plan on 24/5/19. Are Power Ledger in talks to be involved in that?Jemma: Thailand presently has about 5GW of renewables in the system growing at 10 percent per annum. We are in talks with a number of developers about using our platform in Thailand, as a part of our partnership with BCPG.2) As for AGE, when POWR tokens are transferred to buy AGE, could there be some plan to escrow those POWR tokens for a certain period? in order to support the price, otherwise all those POWR tokens sold could cause a collapse in the price.Jemma: We have not done any market making or price support for POWR and it is not in our plans to do that in general, or for AGE. The intention is that POWR can be used to purchase AGE in a particular asset. For the asset itself, they will need a certain amount of POWR in escrow to use the platform.3) How are talks in India going further to the signed MOU?Jemma: Actually we have three projects in India that we are scoping and expect to be able to share details of these in the very near future.4) What are risks utilities simply copy the PL platform & create their own trading blockchain?Jemma: Copying IP is of course a risk. But Power Ledger’s point of difference isn’t just our technology, it is importantly our relationships with the energy and carbon industry and also our technical know how from a blockchain energy and carbon POV. This can’t be easily copied and is why we are the market leader in terms of projects to date.5) Are AGEs still on track for 2019?Jemma: Yes it is! The platform is 90 percent built and we are just finalising the information to share with the market.6) Can you share any specifics yet about who will be able to participate in the first event(s) using POWR tokens. Is it only ICO holders, long term holders of POWR tokens, everyone who holds POWR tokens?Jemma: Anyone will be able to participate7) How will you balance people with large amounts of POWR tokens vs smaller amounts of tokens. Large holders might be disappointed they can’t buy a bigger share and smaller holders might be disappointed if large token holders “scoop it up” first.Jemma: We are working out the details of this to ensure that the market as a whole has the potential to participate. We expect to have more assets on the platform asap to cope with strong demand.8) Can you share anything about potential partnerships in:- Puerto Rico / India and Tech Mahindra /Lisd and EuropeJemma: I answered the India question already. Europe we have two new projects there we will provide details soon which will be our first deployments in Europe, which we are super excited about. In Puerto Rico we are still scoping out potential first projects.9) In general, how do you think current trials are goingJemma: From a technology perspective really great. Our technology has integrated very well into all deployments. Some of the trials are to understand the impacts of the technology on client’s existing portfolios and depending on their exposures, it varies as to how attractive the technology is to use. We see big opportunities though in all the markets we are deployed, which include the US, Australia, Japan, Thailand and the ones we are about to go live in as well, ie Europe, India, Malaysia.10) Any interest in expanding to other regions (for example Malaysia, Dubai, Philippines, Africa, South America)?Jemma: Yes, James is visiting South America this month. We have a project in Malaysia we will provide details on soon. We don’t yet have projects in the other countries you mention.11) What physical hardware is required for the everyday household with a standard metering installation to join and transact on the power ledger network?Jemma: A smart meter is required.12) With the trials so far showing that the PL platform works as expected, is there going to be a bigger push to educate and on board existing retailers domestically? As a PV owner I am really keen to join, however, retailers seem very reluctant to discuss.Jemma: Retailers in Australia (or elsewhere) who do not have a lot of generation assets, and who are exposed to the price volatility in the spot market, could benefit from using our VPP platform and we are seeing a lot of interest on this right now. I wrote about this here.13) Is the smart meter expected to be able to host and run the power ledger platform internally? Or does power ledger provide a separate device?Jemma: No separate device is needed. Meter reading services read the meters and we write that to the blockchain which forms the basis of transactions and associated payments.14) In the Perth trials, what models of smart meter have been used successfully so far?Jemma: The platform is meter agnostic, so long as the meter data can be provided to Power Ledger in regular intervals. There are two types of meters being used in the Western Australian trials. They are from Landis + Gyr and EnergyOS14–1) Could you define “regular interval” i.e. 1 second data?Jemma: Every thirty minutes. Obviously it can be more frequent but it will be a while before the market is there.15) Would the everyday household need to hold POWR tokens to join and transact on the power ledger network, or would the average consumer need to only buy/sell Sparkz with fiat and the application host who hosts the network be the one who needs to hold the POWR tokens?Jemma: Utilities need POWR to spin up a P2P trading marketplace for their customers. Customers do not need POWR or any crypto. They convert dollars to Sparkz and Sparkz back to dollars and this is fixed.16) Would this mean that the meter reading services would need to be Application Hosts? Or will power ledger be obtaining meter read data from the provider as part of a service contract with them?Jemma: Application Hosts will make arrangements with suppliers and push the data to us via an API.17) You have spoken in the past about working with regulators to bring about change. What regulations have you faced that need changing?Jemma: It’s more that regulators want to change and are interested to understand how to write the regulations to enable distributed digital energy markets. Case in point is Thailand. They are running sandboxes which we are a part of that will be using to inform the writing of the new rules.18) When could we expect new Carbon trading projects? Also have the relevant carbon agency approved & accepting the certificates generated by the C6 platforms?Jemma: We will be providing details in the next fortnight of an exciting partnership with our C6 and C6+ technology — for RECs trading in the US.19) What are the biggest challenges you face currently for mass adoption of your platform?Jemma: Honestly there are so many! Getting people to understand the technology, explaining it simply enough so people understand and are willing to try. De-risking technical integration for POCs fast, so we can scale. Language barriers, cultural differences, regulatory. It’s all there!20) Is it now currently possible to share between neighbours in West Australia if both have the required meter? Can I put panels on another residence and through the platform & PPA trade right now?Jemma: In Fremantle, yes, but not more broadly at this time.21) What new doors have open after winning XTC?Jemma: So many. Our next wave of projects that I have mentioned briefly here, and will provide details of in the next few weeks show that we are in scale up. The recognition of the XTC win has helped in building awareness around what we are doing and moving things along faster.22) Are retailers showing interest or are they still wary due to new technologies?Jemma: They are interested where we can help manage their risk and portfolio position as alluded to in a previous question. Our VPP product can help in this regard. I am excited for the opportunities with retailers in Australia that do not have a big generation portfolio, ie the tier 2 retailers.22) Is the project with Japan Sharing Energy going well & on track to take on the 55,000 homes trading later this year? That would be a huge MW amount.Jemma: We are progressing the on-boarding of Sharing Energy. It will be a smaller number to start with and they intend to scale up to those numbers after they get their retail energy license.23) Any at all interest from the eastern states of Australia?Jemma: Yes, we are actively working on large opportunities over east and optimistic about projects there.24) For Queensland customers, there is no incentive for customers to switch to smart meters and no push to do so from retailers. Is there a view for Power Ledger to promote/advertise its advantages for consumers to incentivise them to upgrade their meters? At the moment the only time a smart meter is installed typically is when an existing (electromechanical) meter fails and needs to be replaced.Jemma: I think smart meters will be rolled out across Australia in the next few years. Strata developments are putting them in as standard as they are constructed and our uGrid platform can be used for trading within the development.25) What licences if any are required for using uGrid? Depends on system size I’d guess similar to a single home install? <100kw not required.Jemma: Within strata developments, strata rules allow the body corporate to charge residents for utilities without the need for an energy license.26) With regards to AGEs / Microgrids, do you see an opportunity for Power Ledger to electrify remote communities which currently have little or no access to (clean) energy?Jemma: Absolutely! We are actively working on opportunities in this regard.27) In the strata development who is the application host hosting the uGrid?Jemma: The body corporate.28) How do you expect to handle other competitors like WePower and their expansion in to regions PL are also entering?Jemma: We welcome other players that are good operators. Energy is a $3 trillion market. The more players that are building awareness in the space the easier it will be for everyone.29) For asset germination events, will POWR tokens be required to obtain AGE tokens, or will AGE tokens be directly obtainable with fiat?Jemma: To start with, crypto only.30) What is the capable throughput of the Power Ledger blockchain in terms of transactions per second?Jemma: We’ve just been testing the trading engine for scale and the blockchain and its actually got a lot of upside in it.31) A number of large energy companies are currently showing interested in acquiring assets and perhaps offering similar P2P services. A lot of these still seem to be in the early stages of trials. Do you feel your current state of trials gives Power Ledger a first mover advantage? How important would you say it is for consumers to own their own generation assets to maximally reap the benefits?Jemma: With new technologies, typically the glide path for commercialisation is desktop trials, proof of concepts, commercial trials and commercialisation. We have projects in all buckets which is to be expected. There are about 15 other players right now so I am not sure we are the first mover but certainly we believe those that secure the POCs and commercial trials will be best positioned for commercialisation. Consumers that don’t own their own assets can buy P2P from their neighbours but owning assets means you can get a return so it really depends on what the objective is.32) What other blockchain/crypto projects look interesting to you?Jemma: The other sectors where there is the most progress are financial services, gaming and gambling.190607 AMA session with Dr. Jemma Green was originally published in Power Ledger on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

The trial was held at the Tasman Drive parking garage in Santa Clara, California, where Power Ledger’s blockchain platform was linked to a 370kW solar system, as well as 49 electric vehicle charging stations.HighlightsPower Ledger and Silicon Valley Power, the City of Santa Clara’s Municipal Electric Utility, have successfully implemented a blockchain-based solution for measuring and monetizing renewable electricity discharged to electric vehicles.Power Ledger’s blockchain platform tracks and automates the tracking of low-carbon fuel pathways, enabling Silicon Valley Power to monetize its renewable energy platform through carbon credits.Power Ledger now in discussions with Silicon Valley Power regarding future commercial deployment.Power Ledger and Silicon Valley Power have completed a blockchain trial that monetizes electric vehicle charging infrastructure, creating the potential for tokenized carbon credit trading.Power Ledger’s blockchain-backed platform was trialed to track and manage the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) credit generation from solar panels and electrical vehicle charging infrastructure, as well as credit trading.The LCFS is administered by the California Air Resources Board, and requires businesses that import or produce fuels over a set carbon intensity to purchase ‘carbon credits’ to offset emissions. Currently, this data is collected in spreadsheets and is reconciled quarterly.“This has been a pioneering project. Power Ledger and Silicon Valley Power have established a template for a blockchain enabled solution for the measurement, reporting and verification of carbon credits, replacing a manual collection process that could often take months to validate,” said Power Ledger chairman Dr Jemma Green.“In the future, this could mean electric vehicle owners could make money out of their cars,” said Dr Green.The trial was held at the Tasman Drive parking garage in Santa Clara, California, where Power Ledger’s blockchain platform was linked to a 370kW solar system, as well as 49 electric vehicle charging stations.The solar and charging data produced from the Tasman infrastructure was recorded as smart contracts on the blockchain platform, which then created a digitized LCFS certificate.This certificate contained a cryptographic hash of the information calculated in real-time, which was then sent to Silicon Valley Power’s wallet, enabling Silicon Valley Power to monetize their electric vehicle charging infrastructure.“Power Ledger and Silicon Valley Power have demonstrated a potential use case for creating a secondary market with digital exchange for tokenizing and trading LCFS credits,” said Dr Green.“Blockchain technology creates a decentralized marketplace, enabling a more efficient and transparent method for exchanging assets, including carbon credits.”Power Ledger and Silicon Valley Power are now in discussions regarding commercial deployment.Electric vehicles represent the fastest growing sector of auto sales globally, with sales increasing by 73 percent in 2018 and Tesla’s Model 3 Sedans the biggest seller.Power Ledger and Silicon Valley Power trial to turn electric vehicles into mobile atms was originally published in Power Ledger on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

This project highlights how developers can choose to make smarter, more efficient choices when it comes to homes,” said David Martin, managing director and co-founder of Power Ledger.Mayor of Fremantle Brad Pettitt, Power Ledger Co-founder and Chair Dr Jemma Green, Curtin University Sustainability Institute, Director JBA Dr Josh Byrne, and Minister for Lands Ben Wyatt. (L-R)The development is part of the Australian Government’s Smart Cities and Suburbs initiative, which will see a 670kW/h shared battery ultimately owned and shared by the individual homeowners.“Power Ledger’s platform allows residents to sell excess solar power from the panels on their roofs directly to their neighbours at a better price, rather than selling back to the traditional grid.”Future residents of the 36 townhouse urban village will generate their own power using individual 5kW PV solar systems and then share renewable energy using the Power Ledger platform across a microgrid.“Our energy trading software gives people the option to purchase green energy rather than energy from fossil fuel sources, even if they don’t have solar panels on their own home,” said Mr Martin.The development includes a microgrid supply network for water and power, a shared on-site battery provided by Power Ledger, and each home will be fitted with an electric vehicle charger.“The mix of innovations at East Village at Knutsford provides a great insight into what it is possible for us to achieve in modern sustainable residential infill developments,” said WA Government Lands Minister Ben Wyatt.Using 100 per cent renewable energy from PVs battery and green electricity from the grid, the 1.5-hectare development will set new benchmarks for affordable and sustainable living in Western Australia.“LandCorp is leading by doing, and this project demonstrates to the wider construction industry just what is possible in creating connected and affordable communities,” said Mr Wyatt.East Village at Knutsford will be tracked and assessed by an on-site living laboratory, in partnership with Curtin University. The research program will build a dataset to demonstrate the value of the innovations and work towards WA’s second One Planet Living accreditation.Power Ledger’s SaaS energy trading platform is currently being trialled in several places across Western Australia as well as in Thailand, Japan and the United States.Power Ledger reveals Australian Government Smart Cities project for 100% renewable energy was originally published in Power Ledger on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Power Ledger: 2018 POWR Pro...

This is the first POWR Project Escrow Report. We intend to release a POWR Project Escrow Report such as this periodically, detailing the total amount of POWR being held in escrow for active projects.You can read more about how our escrow process works for active projects here.As of January 2019 the cumulative number of POWR tokens in escrow for active projects is 533,066. This aggregated approach ensures the commercially sensitive information of our partners is protected.Out of the 533,066 POWR escrowed…393,803 were funded by the Project Partners and Application Hosts and purchased directly from the market, reducing the circulating supply.139,263 were topped up by Power Ledger from the Growth Pool.Power Ledger has transferred the total number of POWR tokens being held for active projects into 0x3DD7719ab702282F3972b88e4B372C6aFCC4b7eC.In this instance, you will be able to verify the transfer of this amount to the escrow wallet using any Ethereum blockchain explorer.The smart contract that contains escrowed POWR also contains a hash of a table, which lists all current Application Hosts and the amount of POWR escrowed for each, based on their current trading volume. This hash is a way to maintain an auditable record of the POWR escrowed per project, while obscuring sensitive commercial information.This smart contract represents an intermediary step towards our vision for how the escrow process will eventually work. Ultimately, we want Sparkz to be minted automatically upon the escrow of POWR. However, currently the Application Hosts are not yet ready to manage blockchain interactions as such Power Ledger is facilitating this process.Many of our projects are currently small scale trials, with huge potential. The amount of POWR escrowed for each project is a reflection of that. As the projects grow in size, so too will the number of tokens needed in escrow.The reason for releasing this report now is so the community can track the trajectory of tokens in escrow in relation to the growing number of projects and the growing number of POWR tokens in escrow quarter by quarter.Please note: There are projects that have been announced which are not yet included in the total calculation. These projects will be included in a later report.Power Ledger: 2018 POWR Project Escrow Report was originally published in Power Ledger on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

How Do Power Ledger’s Proje...

How Do Power Ledger’s Active Projects Impact Circulating Supply of POWR?The POWR token plays an important role in the adoption of Power Ledger’s technology. The more users we onboard, the more the token economy will drive the use of POWR.More users equates to more energy being traded on the platform, which in turn requires more POWR tokens to be escrowed by application hosts to gain or maintain access to the Power Ledger platform.There’s only 1 billion POWR tokens in existence, and there will never be more created. Only a portion of those are currently in circulation. Every time we onboard an Application Host, they’re required to escrow POWR. For as long as they maintain use of the platform, the tokens will remain in escrow and out of circulating supply.Escrow ProcessThere are two options for Application Hosts when escrowing POWR for projects.The first is for them to purchase the agreed upon number of POWR from an exchange, which will then be sent to the escrow address.The second option is for Application Hosts to pay Power Ledger in fiat currency, and Power Ledger will purchase and escrow POWR on their behalf.We envisage that the second option will be utilized less as Application Hosts become more educated in the handling and use of tokens.In some cases we may escrow POWR from the Growth Pool, as per the whitepaper, however we intend to keep this to a minimum.We’ve developed an escrowing system that we believe provides the transparency the POWR community is seeking, while also protecting the commercially sensitive information of our partners.We intend to release a POWR Project Escrow Report periodically, detailing the total amount of POWR being held for active projects.The reason for releasing this report periodically is so the community can track the trajectory of tokens in escrow in relation to the growing number of projects.Escrow ReportsPower Ledger: 2018 POWR Project Escrow ReportHow Do Power Ledger’s Projects Impact Circulating Supply of POWR? was originally published in Power Ledger on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Power Ledger & Sharing Ener...

Power Ledger’s latest project with Sharing Energy highlights the benefit of peer-to-peer energy trading to enhance renewable energy uptake in Japan.Kazuhiro Iguchi (Head of Business Development, Sharing Energy) and Vinod Tiwari (Head of Business Development & Sales, Power Ledger)Power Ledger announced today a partnership to drive renewable energy trading in Japan alongside Sharing Energy Co., Ltd., a leading provider in the installation and provision of solar energy. Initially, Power Ledger’s blockchain-powered platform will allow Sharing Energy to track renewable energy consumption from 100 pre-identified Sharing customers across Kansai, Chubu and Kyushu regions.The project is expected to grow from 100 rooftops to over 55,000 rooftops by the end of 2020, with plans to sell to consumers via interested third parties or following Sharing’s procurement of a retail license. This partnership and project illustrate Power Ledger’s growing momentum in Asia, and their continued global progress toward combating carbon emissions and revolutionizing the current global energy system.“We are proud of the work we are doing in Japan, and the strides we are making in democratizing energy across the globe. Especially given the increased effort by leading companies like Sharing Energy to embrace a new era of renewable energy,” said chairman and co-founder of Power Ledger, Dr. Jemma Green. Adding, “this partnership is an exciting example of how our blockchain technology can make visions of implementing scalable, renewable energy solutions a reality for partners and communities worldwide.”With the proposed cuts to Japan’s feed-in-tariff (FiT) program in November, established in 2012 to incentivize investing in renewable energy, power companies and businesses are embracing a time of energy innovation and renewed interest in renewable energy initiatives. In fact, Power Ledger is already working with the country’s biggest privately-owned electricity retailer Kansai Electric Power Company (KEPCO) to develop a Virtual Power Plant (VPP) model to help address Japan’s challenges with excess solar generation. And in accordance with the Paris Climate Goals, Japan committed to increase renewables and reduce its carbon emissions by 26 percent by 2030.For this deployment, Power Ledger will initially provide near real-time usage data to Sharing, and from November onwards Sharing will use Power Ledger’s peer-to-peer platform to facilitate electricity trading between sellers and buyers using real-time data from existing smart meters. It will verify the feasibility and scalability of P2P energy trading in Japan and allow Sharing Energy to conduct research on energy transactions via Power Ledger’s blockchain-powered platform.This will allow Sharing Energy to effectively utilize clean, renewable energy within social systems like apartment buildings, businesses, etc. to promote a better energy system and lower carbon emissions.“As our country is reevaluating how people and businesses buy and sell energy, we are fortunate to be working with an established leader like Power Ledger,” said Emiko Koga, president of Sharing Energy. “And we look forward to positively impacting the Japanese energy market alongside them and supporting their commitment to provide clean energy that is affordable and available to all.”This project with Sharing Energy illustrates Power Ledger’s momentum in bringing clean, renewable energy to the world, and comes on the heels of other global partnerships involving P2P trading, such as three deployments in major energy markets in the U.S., and a world-first trial of P2P energy trading across a regulated distribution network in Fremantle, Western Australia, alongside project partners, the government, Curtin & Murdoch Universities, Western Power and Synergy.About Power Ledger: Power Ledger is the leading blockchain-enabled peer-to-peer marketplace for renewable energy, energy asset financing and carbon markets. The energy trading platform provides a transparent, auditable and automated market trading and clearing mechanism for residential and commercial businesses to decide who they want to sell their surplus energy to and at what price.More information: www.powerledger.ioAbout Sharing Energy:Sharing Energy is a Japanese company. I AND C-Cruise Co.Ltd., is one of the Sharing’s shareholders, which operates several comparison web services for PV systems, house reforms and household gas which have achieved over 200,000 users in Japan. The other one is Energy and Environment Investment Inc., which is Japan’s only VC fund focussed on energy and environment.Currently, Sharing Energy offers customers free installation of its solar PV. Sharing intentionally installs excess capacity and in return customers receive free solar energy for their homes. Sharing Energy takes the excess energy generated by the solar PV via a feed-in tariff. Once the feed-in tariff ends in Japan, Sharing plans to sell the excess energy to interested third parties.More information: https://share-denki.com/Power Ledger & Sharing Energy Announce Scalable Partnership to Evolve Renewable Energy in Japan was originally published in Power Ledger on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Power Ledger: Playing By Th...

As 2018 hurtles towards a conclusion and 2019 crouches ready to explode from the blocks, we look back at the year that was for Power Ledger.Power Ledger co-founders John Bulich, Jemma Green and Dave Martin.2018 was always going to be a watershed year for Power Ledger.With Australia’s first and at the time, most successful Initial Coin Offering (ICO) under our belt, funding assured for years to come and the crypto market surging and diving, 2018 presented the opportunity and the challenge to start driving the change we outlined in our whitepaper.Energy ReimaginedWe believe empowering individuals and communities to co-create their energy future will underpin the development of a power system that is resilient, low-cost, zero-carbon and owned by the people of the world… (Power Ledger White Paper 2017.)The ProblemThe philosophy that drives Power Ledger hasn’t changed since we first conceived the business in 2016.We could see the energy system was undergoing an enormous technological transformation.Distributed renewables, owned by consumers, were challenging the rules of the game; the old, centralized view of the power system and the governance structures that had steered system development and operation for decades just didn’t make sense anymore but, for all the talk, we couldn’t see anyone taking any steps to change the rules.The Power Ledger platform was a proposition for a new rule set — we didn’t want to change the laws of physics, but we did want to change the rules of the market.The thing is, changing the rules of the game when you weren’t invited to play is a tough thing to do.Power Ledger’s distributed energy trading platform had already been demonstrated in Australia at the Busselton Lifestyle Village and in New Zealand with Vector Energy prior to our ICO, so we knew it had the technology capability to deliver the reforms we thought were necessary. But getting traction in a slow-moving market was never going to be easy.In late 2017 we announced we would undertake a trial of our peer-to-peer trading platform with Australian Energy giant, Origin Energy.The Origin trial involved using a year’s worth of energy consumption and production data from 200 of Origin’s customers, conducting P2P trades for distributed renewables on the Power Ledger platform and demonstrating the impact on consumers’ energy bills and Origin’s revenues.From our perspective and for several reasons, the project was a success.As a result of this trial, we could accurately demonstrate the application of agreed trading rules, we show the buying and selling of energy at varying rates and tariffs between different types of customers and we showed we can record this information to the blockchain.But the project didn’t proceed at that time.A range of factors contributed to what myself and the Power Ledger team felt at the time was a set-back. Following the trial, Origin decided to focus on further developing their Home Energy Management and distributed energy solutions before considering customer trials of P2P trading alone.As with all new technologies, regulatory factors play an important role too.The concept of peer-to-peer trading isn’t forbidden by existing regulations. The fact is, peer-to-peer trading isn’t even considered by the regulations, meaning the “how to” rules are yet to be written.In an industry as heavily regulated as the energy industry, rules are king.We were proposing a change to the rules when we weren’t even invited to the game.Of course, by this stage we were no stranger to challenging the rules.Leading By ExampleThe Power Ledger ICO, while probably the most transparent ICO conducted in Australia, was conducted at a time when the rules around this new funding model were still being considered.While the rules around ICOs were unclear, the rules around other forms of fundraising are well understood. We made a corporate decision to reflect the principles of these traditional funding arrangements in our ICO.We conducted the ICO through the agency of our corporate, Pty Ltd, structure.We published very clear disclosure documents, we produced clear terms and conditions for participation and we did not allow retail investors in jurisdictions where ICOs were not permitted.Everyone who participated in our ICO was very clearly informed about the risks and opportunities of the process they were participating in.When you’re in a bull market, everyone is your friend. But when the market falls, fingers start to point.We’ve always said we can’t control the market, all we can do is work hard to grow a really successful business.Criticism is a fact of life for organizations like ours.It’s not a unique problem that we face; the best gold producer in the world can be made unprofitable from commodity prices which are completely out of their control. Shareholders may well be upset, and they have every right to ask informed questions at shareholder meetings.Power Ledger gets these questions all day, every day. In fact we created the forums for these conversations which provides a far greater level of transparency than most companies in the non blockchain space.We maintain chat groups in English, Japanese, Thai, Korean, Filipino and Mandarin to keep people informed about the business, to answer queries and provide ongoing disclosure, but these platforms also provide refuge for trolls.It’s not just lone actors. We’ve had administrators of major online communities threaten us with spreading negative comments if we don’t pay them to create positive content — FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) has its own currency.As far as we’re concerned that’s extortion and we won’t and don’t play that game but it’s indicative of some of the challenges that companies like Power Ledger face and how people with a vested interest can manipulate public opinion to suit their own agenda.All we can do is work our hardest at building a good business and that’s our focus.Power Ledger has also been working with the Australian Taxation Office to explore the taxation implications of ICOs and how to apply GST on the online sale of cryptocurrency assets.The outcomes of those conversations will have a material impact on our financial position but we planned for the worst in our treasury management and we always said we’d be as open and transparent as possible regarding meeting our corporate obligations.Power Ledger had the option of conducting our ICO through a digital foundation with (purportedly) no governing jurisdiction like almost all ICO’s before us. We could have used a warren of shell companies and trust structures. But we wanted to be better. We wanted to raise the bar.We wanted to conduct our business in a way that was transparent and built the legitimacy of the emerging cryptocurrency and ICO markets as well as confidence in Power Ledger.Progress & ProjectsOur focus has been demonstrated through what we’ve achieved in 2018. We’ve commenced projects in Thailand, Japan and the United States and begun a world-first trial of peer-to-peer energy trading across a regulated distribution network in Fremantle Western Australia, RENeW Nexus, alongside our project partners Curtin University, Western Power, Synergy and energyOS.The T77 project in Thailand is a partnership with Thai government-owned renewables developer BCPG using the MEA network to sell excess solar energy between a number of commercial and retail buildings in Bangkok.In Japan, we’re working with the country’s biggest privately-owned electricity retailer KEPCO to develop a Virtual Power Plant model to help address Japan’s challenges with excess solar generation.On the east coast of the USA, American PowerNet will soon be using the Power Ledger system to sell excess solar energy to two commercial customers connected to the local distribution network. On the West coast, we’re working with Silicon Valley Power to develop a platform for the measurement, validation and reporting of Low Carbon Fuel Standard credits.body[data-twttr-rendered="true"] {background-color: transparent;}.twitter-tweet {margin: auto !important;}We've got some big plans. https://t.co/A2UK9KfBAH — @PowerLedger_iofunction notifyResize(height) {height = height ? height : document.documentElement.offsetHeight; var resized = false; if (window.donkey && donkey.resize) {donkey.resize(height); resized = true;}if (parent && parent._resizeIframe) {var obj = {iframe: window.frameElement, height: height}; parent._resizeIframe(obj); resized = true;}if (window.location && window.location.hash === "#amp=1" && window.parent && window.parent.postMessage) {window.parent.postMessage({sentinel: "amp", type: "embed-size", height: height}, "*");}if (window.webkit && window.webkit.messageHandlers && window.webkit.messageHandlers.resize) {window.webkit.messageHandlers.resize.postMessage(height); resized = true;}return resized;}twttr.events.bind('rendered', function (event) {notifyResize();}); twttr.events.bind('resize', function (event) {notifyResize();});if (parent && parent._resizeIframe) {var maxWidth = parseInt(window.frameElement.getAttribute("width")); if ( 500 < maxWidth) {window.frameElement.setAttribute("width", "500");}}In Australia, a broad sustainable communities research project involving utilities, universities and government agencies partially funded by a grant from the Commonwealth Government as part of the Smart Cities and Suburbs program will see Power Ledger install a community-scaled battery to support the provision of low-cost and low-carbon energy supplies to the residents of a sustainable housing development in Fremantle.Power Ledger’s platform is also in commercial deployment in three separate strata developments in White Gum Valley.In September we announced we’re working with Vicinity to trial our platform at their Castle Plaza Shopping Centre in South Australia as part of their $75 million industry-leading solar program.This year was really about us deploying our products in multiple locations around the world so we could see where was the biggest opportunity for us to scale and commercialise our technology.Most of our projects to date have been around being proof of concept but we do now have contracts for more commercial projects coming online in the coming months.The projects in total don’t represent huge sums in revenue but that’s not the point.The POWR economy and the Power Ledger business model isn’t predicated on huge revenues or massive trading fees.The point of our platform is to allow other people to monetise their investment in distributed energy resources by allowing them to sell their excess energy — if we had large trading fees we’d open ourselves up to disruption.Instead we use the POWR token as an alternative to SAAS fees or platform subscription fees. It also allows us to create a liquid trading environment which can protect platform users even if their electricity provider faces financial distress.Basic economics teaches us that the greater the demand we create for POWR tokens, the more benefit accrues for POWR token holders.As cryptocurrencies mature we expect that the prices of various tokens will begin to reflect the real world value and success of their products, not just speculation. We are committed to building an internally sustainable business model which can survive without crypto boom and bust, and creating demand for the POWR token through deployments is how we aim to get there.That benefits us and our supporters, but it’s a fact that’s lost on most mainstream commentators that still think revenue rules the world.One of the side-effects of innovation is you become something of a test case for everyone that comes after you.We’ve never shied away from challenging questions or opinions. In a world where it’s easy to block and ban at the first sight of negativity, we engage. The critics keep us thinking differently and innovating constantly, and we’re thankful for that.Innovators innovate, commentators commentate, haters hate and people who resist change get left behind.Team GrowthPower Ledger’s staff grew from about 12 full-time and contract staff in the lead up to the ICO to more than 30 by the end of this year. But our growth hasn’t been without its challenges.When you’re in a rapid growth phase, getting high quality staff into the business is an absolute must, unfortunately sometimes in the rush to bring in capability, you get it wrong.While I think everyone who joined the business this year has come with the best intentions, the high-pressure, rapid-change nature of a startup isn’t right for everyone.Some people self-select out, others we’ve had to move on.We’ve had a number of people leave the business as we’ve worked to find the right structure to take us forward. We’ve had many more join.body[data-twttr-rendered="true"] {background-color: transparent;}.twitter-tweet {margin: auto !important;}Our tech team at their morning scrum standup — @PowerLedger_iofunction notifyResize(height) {height = height ? height : document.documentElement.offsetHeight; var resized = false; if (window.donkey && donkey.resize) {donkey.resize(height); resized = true;}if (parent && parent._resizeIframe) {var obj = {iframe: window.frameElement, height: height}; parent._resizeIframe(obj); resized = true;}if (window.location && window.location.hash === "#amp=1" && window.parent && window.parent.postMessage) {window.parent.postMessage({sentinel: "amp", type: "embed-size", height: height}, "*");}if (window.webkit && window.webkit.messageHandlers && window.webkit.messageHandlers.resize) {window.webkit.messageHandlers.resize.postMessage(height); resized = true;}return resized;}twttr.events.bind('rendered', function (event) {notifyResize();}); twttr.events.bind('resize', function (event) {notifyResize();});if (parent && parent._resizeIframe) {var maxWidth = parseInt(window.frameElement.getAttribute("width")); if ( 500 < maxWidth) {window.frameElement.setAttribute("width", "500");}}2019 and BeyondThis year was really about us deploying our products in multiple locations around the world so we could see where was the biggest opportunity for us to scale and commercialise our technology.We’re now looking to the future, to a new year when the hard work of demonstrating the effectiveness of our platform transforms into the hard work of delivering projects.The focus for 2019 will be on market growth and scale and the continued development of carbon and asset financing products.It’s been a wild ride.I really grew up in utilities so this whole startup life is an amazing, challenging, frustrating and energising experience for me and I think the business learns and grows every day.We haven’t been perfect but I think we’ve got more right than wrong. We’ve fixed the things we’ve broken and we’ve brought our partners and supporters along for the ride.We’ll keep trying to change the rules to make distributed renewables an increasingly important part of our energy future. And to be frank, we don’t care if we’re invited to the game or not.Creating change is too important for us to be dissuaded by the critics.-DavePower Ledger: Playing By The Rules When You’re Not Invited To The Game was originally published in Power Ledger on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Fremantle Residents Partici...

Fremantle Residents Participating In World-First Trial, Trading Solar Energy Peer-to-Peer and Setting Their Own PricesThe trial forms part of the RENeW Nexus project, and is a joint effort between Power Ledger, Curtin University, Synergy, Western Power and energyOS.Fremantle.Residents in Fremantle, Western Australia, are actively trading solar energy generated from their rooftops with their neighbours and setting their own prices in a world-first trial. The trial forms part of the RENeW Nexus project, and is a joint effort between Power Ledger, Curtin University, Synergy, Western Power and energyOS.How Does It Work?Power Ledger’s blockchain-enabled platform is enabling residents to set their own buy and sell prices and trade energy in near real-time. Western Power, who operate and maintain the electrical grid in the south west of Western Australia and Synergy, Western Australia’s largest electricity generator and retailer, are further enabling this marketplace by maximising existing customer connections to their infrastructure and trialing fixed daily supply charges.At present, up to 40 households are taking part in the RENeW Nexus Plan trial, trading across the regulated electricity grid. Residents participating in the trial, which will run until June 2019, will see peer-to-peer energy trades reflected on their bills. Following completion of the trial, Curtin University will carry out research underpinning the trial and publish findings.Throughout the trial, residents will have access to granular usage data to help alter their standard consumption habits. Currently residents receive their energy bills in totals every 30 to 60 days, the RENeW Nexus Plan trial will enable them to view their usage in 30 minute intervals.Curtin University, Western Power, Synergy, energy OS and Power Ledger are excited about the opportunity this presents to educate the community on their consumption, and empower them with the information they need to make meaningful changes to their usage habits. For example, residents could choose to use their air-conditioner during off-peak times rather than peak times, allowing them to take advantage of cheaper, renewable energy when it is being generated.Residents are making use of this function right now. They’re able to compare energy usage hourly, daily or monthly to determine times of peak consumption. Additionally, users can view peak and off-peak times in the platform. This creates a clear distinction between periods of higher and lower energy prices — a detail that the majority of users may not be otherwise aware of.What Makes This Trial Unique?While blockchain-based peer-to-peer trading is already taking place, RENeW Nexus is the first trial to enable participants to set their own prices.The cooperation between Western Power and Synergy to facilitate fixed daily supply charges is also a first in a project of this kind.There is still a limited opportunity for Fremantle residents who do not have solar PV on their rooftops to participate in the trial. Please direct enquiries to renew.nexus@curtin.edu.au for more information.The RENeW Nexus project is managed through Curtin University and is supported by the Australian Government through the Smart Cities and Suburbs Program. The RENeW Nexus project includes the following partners: Curtin University, Murdoch University, City of Fremantle, Landcorp, Synergy, Western Power, Water Corporation, Power Ledger, energyOS, CSIRO/Data 61 and CISCO.Fremantle Residents Participating In World-First Trial, Trading Solar Energy Peer-to-Peer and… was originally published in Power Ledger on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

파워렛저의 공동 창업자이자 회장인 Jemma Green 박사가 Richard Branson 경의 Necker Island에서 2018년 Extreme Tech Challenge 당시 최종 발표 때 발표 내용입니다.2017년 가을에 흥미로운 순간이 있었습니다.태양열, 풍력, 배터리 전력 가격이 kwh 당 15센트 아래로 하락했습니다.바로 처음으로 화석연료보다 신재생 에너지 가격이 싸졌다는 뜻입니다.하락하는 태양열, 풍력, 배터리 전력의 가격이 역사적인 순간은 많은 사람들에게 묻혀 지나갔습니다.하지만 저와 저희 파워렛저 공동 창업자들에게 이 순간은 절대 잊혀지지 않습니다. 이론적으로 이는 새로운 시대의 시작을 뜻합니다.전기 가격에도 굉장히 좋은 뉴스였어야 합니다. 또한 전력 가난 속에 살고 있는 수 억명의 사람들에게도,경쟁력을 위해 싼 전기료에 의지하는 수 백만개의 기업들에게도,이 지구를 위해서도요.신재생 에너지와 저장고가 석탄보다 싸진다면 석탄은 어제의 이야기가 되어야 합니다.하지만 빠르게 일어나지 않습니다.변화는 하루 아침에 일어날 수 없기 때문입니다. 이 이유는 전기가 생산되고 유통되는 과정에 있습니다.모두가 동시에 전력을 사용하고자 하는 피크 전력을 위해서는 아직 전력망이 필요합니다.전력 회사들은 정확히 “피크를 대비해 우리가 필요하니 그에 걸맞게 가격을 책정하겠다”라고 말할 수 있죠.그리고 거기에 전력 송신이 필요합니다. 이 또한 전기료를 올리는 요인이 되죠.그리고 나면 “유틸리티 죽음의 소용돌이”라고 불리는 것이 발생합니다.Utility death spiral.사람들이 자체 가정에서 생산한 전력의 미래를 추구하기 위해 전력망을 떠날 수록, 전력망에 남아있는 사람들에게 전기료는 더욱 비싸지게 됩니다.간단하게 말해서, 전기료에는 시장왜곡을 생기게 하는 다양한 측면이 있다는 뜻입니다.이로 인해 현상 유지가 됩니다. 바로 고비용, 고탄소 전력이죠.날씨가 험악한 캐리비안 일대에선 높은 취약성을 가진 전기만 있습니다.다시 말해 이러한 전기로 가장 고통 받는 사람들은 최소한 전기 가격을 부담할 수 있는 사람들이라는 겁니다.저희는 머리를 맞대고 시장을 구축할 수 있는 기술, 시스템 사이에 있는 격차를 줄이고, 더 유동적이고 변화에 민감한 기술을 개발하기로 마음 먹었습니다.따라서 사람들, 궁극적으로 기계가 공급과 전력망을 더 민첩한 방식으로 관리할 수 있도록 말이죠.파워렛저의 목표는 바로 전력의 자유화입니다. 이게 무슨 뜻일까요?저희는 사람들이 전력을 사고 팔 수 있는 플랫폼을 개발했습니다.파워렛저의 듀얼 토큰 모델저희는 Sparkz와 POWR라 불리는 암호 토큰과 암호화폐를 만들었습니다. Sparkz는 전력 거래를 나타내고, POWR는 전력 회사들에게 P2P거래를 위한 라이센스와 채권을 나태냅니다. 저희는 저희 스스로가 중앙화된 과거에서 분산화된 에너지 미래의 다리 역할을 하고 있다고 생각합니다. 이를 원활히 하는 과정 속에 앞서 말씀드린 여러 시장의 결함, 특히 송전선에서 더하는 말도 안되는 비용 등은 자연스럽게 해결되는 것입니다.저희가 새로운 태양광 셀이나 새로운 종류의 배터리를 만들지는 않았습니다.그건 다른 기업들의 역할이죠.저희가 어떤 물리 법칙을 변화시키려 하는 게 아닙니다. 하지만 저희는 시장 경제가 신재생에너지로 향하고 그 가치가 소비자에게 전달될 수 있도록 시장의 법칙을 바꾸고 있습니다.저희는 블록체인을 이용해 누가 얼마만큼, 누구에게, 언제 팔고 있는지 기록을 추적합니다.저희 플랫폼은 기존에 있는 스마트 미터를 이용해 실시간 데이터를 사용하고, 이를 통해 구매자와 판매자 사이의 전기 거래를 가능케 합니다. 이는 또한 저희 기술이 실사용되는데 저비용이 든다는 것을 뜻합니다.블록체인의 활용은 이 거래가 실시간으로 이뤄지고, 투명하고, 확장 가능성이 있으며, 무엇보다 모든 이해관계자 사이에 신뢰를 형성하여 마찰 없이 이루어질 수 있음을 뜻합니다. 분산화라는 특징은 에너지가 로컬임을 뜻하고, 이를 통해 송신료를 절약할 수 있습니다. 저희가 제안하는 새로운, 탈중앙화된 전력 시스템에선 이런 구조로 거래가 이루어집니다.분산된 시스템은 또한 더 탄력적입니다. 허리케인 Irma나 Maria와 같은 자연재해가 발생해도 갑자기 몇 천명 이상이 전기를 잃게 되는 기존 시스템보다 탈중앙화된 에너지시스템은 훨씬 안정적입니다. 전력 이동 과정에서 전력이 손실될 일이 없기 때문이죠. 저희 기술이 가장 매력적으로 작용하는 곳은 개발도상국입니다. 이게 바로 저희가 태국에서 이미 진행 중인 프로젝트입니다.태국 전력 회사인 BCPG와 태국 정부와 함께 하는 이 세계 최초 프로젝트는 방콕에 위치한 T77 precinct에서 P2P 신재생 에너지 거래를 성사시켰습니다. 하지만 굉장히 규제가 심한 경제 국가에서도 전진하고 있습니다.캘리포니아에서 Silicon Valley Power와의 프로젝트는 전기차 소유주가 피크시간동안 화석연료로 충전하기 보다는, 낮 시간동안 태양열을 통해 전기차를 충전시킬 수 있는 인센티브를 제공합니다. 이를 통해 전기차 소유주들은 블록체인을 통해 탄소배출권을 받습니다. 일본에서 가장 큰 민간 전력업체인 KEPCO는 오사카에 있는 VPP를 시행하기 위해 저희 플랫폼을 사용할 예정입니다. 이 모델에선 자체 시행되는 스마트 계약이 IoT 제품을 통합시켜 자치적인 에너지 거래 시장을 생성합니다.제 고향인 호주에선 호주 정부와 함께 하는 스마트 시티 프로젝트를 앞두고 굉장히 기대를 하고 있습니다. 두 개의 대학과 정부 소유의 전기 회사들과 함께 호주에서 최초로 across-the-grid의 P2P거래를 선보이게 될 예정입니다.주로 에너지 산업에서 유기적 성장의 속도는 굉장히 느립니다. 하지만 지구는 변화를 기다릴 시간이 없습니다.International Renewable Energy Agency에 의하면 “전세계가 파리 협약의 목표를 이루기 위해서 신재생에너지는 지금 속도보다 6배 이상 빠르게 확장돼야 한다”고 합니다. 신재생 에너지에서 이러한 성장을 가속화하기 위해선, 투자가 필요하고, 이를 위한 제품을 개발했습니다.Asset Germination Events는 블록체인과 암호화폐를 이용해 에너지 프로젝트 펀딩을 위한 새로운 종류의 자금을 제공할 것입니다. 저희는 일반인들이 에너지 자산에 투자하고 공동 소유할 수 있길 원합니다.이는 세계 최초의 규제된 에너지 암호화폐가 될 것입니다. 저희는 large-scale의 자산을 입수하여 이를 블록체인에서 분할하고 공동 소유를 가능케 하고자 합니다.2년 전 퍼스에서 세 개의 아파트를 두고 테스트 케이스를 가졌습니다. 올해 저희는 태국, 일본, 미국과의 프로젝트를 계약했습니다. 명백히 시장 붕괴와 네트워크 성장은 일어나고 있습니다. 하지만 이를 더 빨리 진행하고 싶습니다.여기 계신 모든 분들처럼, 우승 트로피를 가지고 돌아가서 필수적인 도움을 확실히 받고, 지원을 받고 싶습니다. XTC 우승을 통해 저희는 저희 성장 속도를 4배 이상 높일 수 있다고 생각합니다. XTC 우승이 주는 자격을 통해 저희가 파리 협약 목표를 이뤄내는 결정적인 역할을 하게 될 지 누가 알겠습니까?이는 저희 결론과 관련 있습니다. 매우 큰 결론이죠.이 시장에서의 가지를 나타내는 화폐는 기존 화석연료를 기반으로 하는 경제 시스템을 붕괴시킬 가능성을 가지고 있습니다. 저희의 가장 큰 야망은 단순히 에너지 시장에서의 혁신을 촉진시키는 것이 나닌 공정하고, 투명하고, 안전한 디지털 화폐 속에서 에너지가 거래될 수 있게 하는 것입니다.이는 전세계의 v 2.0의 인프라를 나타내게 될 것입니다.여기 계신 분들도 동의하실 거라 믿습니다. 저희는 에너지 자유화가 그에 달려있다 생각합니다. 감사합니다.XTC 2018: 파워렛저 최종 발표 was originally published in Power Ledger on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

XTC 2018: Power Ledger’s Fi...

The talk Power Ledger co-founder and chair Dr. Jemma Green gave on Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island during the Extreme Tech Challenge 2018 finals.In the autumn of 2017 an interesting moment occurred.The price of solar, wind and battery power fell below 15 cents per kwh.Which meant for the first time it cost less than fossil fuels.Falling prices of solar, wind and battery power.This moment in history went largely unnoticed by most people.But for my fellow Power Ledger co-founders and me the significance was not lost.Theoretically this was the beginning of a new era.This should have been great news for electricity prices.And for the billions of people living in electricity poverty.Equally for the millions of businesses who depend on affordable electricity to be competitive.And for the planet, too.When renewables and storage become cheaper than coal, coal should become so yesterday.But not so fast.Revolutions don’t happen overnight.And the reason for this lies in the details of the way electricity is produced and distributed.We still need the grid to meet peak demand, when everyone wants electricity at the same time.Energy companies can rightly say “you need us for the peak, so we’re going to charge you accordingly.”Then there’s the transmission of electricity, which also adds cost.Then there is what we call the utility death spiral.Utility death spiral.As people leave the grid to pursue their home-grown electrical future, they make the grid more expensive for everyone left connected.Put simply, the cost of electricity has many nooks and crannies that create market distortions.These maintain the status quo. Which is high-cost, high-carbon electricity.And in stormy Caribbean places, high vulnerability electricity.Which all means the people that suffer most are the people who can least afford it.We put our heads together and decided to develop a market-making technology that would help bridge the gaps in the system and make it more fluid and responsive.So people and ultimately machines could manage the supply and grid in a more agile way.Power Ledger’s mission is none other than the democratization of power.So what does that mean?We’ve developed an exchange where people can buy and sell their electricity.Power Ledger dual token model.We’ve created a cryptographic token and a cryptocurrency that enable this market, called Sparkz and POWR. Sparkz represent electricity transactions, and POWR is a license and a bond for utilities to offer peer-to-peer trading.We see ourselves as providing a bridge from a centralized past to a distributed energy future.And in the process ironing out many of the market imperfections mentioned earlier.And one where the transmission lines that add so much cost, gradually get stripped out.We didn’t create a new photovoltaic cell nor a new type of battery. That’s for others to do.We’re not trying to change the laws of physics — but we are changing the laws of the market to make sure the economics point to renewables and value flows to consumers.We use the blockchain to keep a tally of who is selling how much, to whom and when.Our platform uses real-time data from existing smart meters to enable electricity trading between buyer and seller. This also means our tech is low cost to deploy.The use of blockchain means that the market can be real-time, transparent, scalable and above all, frictionless — creating trust between all involved parties. The distributed nature means energy is local which has the benefit of saving money on transmission charges.In the new, decentralized electricity system, things look like this.A distributed system is also more resilient. When natural disasters strike, like hurricanes Irma and Maria, leaving thousands without electricity, a decentralized energy system is far more secure as it doesn’t have a single, vulnerable point of failure.Where our technology is having the most traction is in developing economies. This is what we are doing in Thailand.Our world-first project with Thai energy company BCPG and the government has created a peer-to-peer renewable energy trading market at the T77 precinct in Bangkok.But in heavily regulated economies, we’re making progress too.In California, our project with Silicon Valley Power incentivises electric vehicle owners to charge their cars from solar during the day, rather than at peak hours from fossil fuels. And in doing so, they receive carbon credits via the blockchain.Japan’s largest privately-owned power utility, KEPCO will be using our platform to support a Virtual Power Plant in Osaka. In this model, self-executing smart contracts integrate with Internet of Things devices, creating an autonomous energy trading market.At my home in Australia, we’re excited to kickstart a Smart Cities project with the Australian Government. Working with two universities and state-owned utilities, we’re bringing peer-to-peer trading across-the-grid for the first time in Australia.Typically in the energy industry, the speed of organic growth is glacial but our planet doesn’t have time to wait for change.According to the International Renewable Energy Agency, “renewables need to be scaled up six times faster for the world to meet the Paris Agreement goals.”If we’re going to turbocharge this growth in renewables, we need investment, so we’ve pioneered a product to do this.Asset Germination Events will use blockchain and crypto to provide new sources of capital for funding energy projects. We intend to enable everyday people to invest in and co-own energy assets.This will be a world-first regulated crypto energy offering.We intend to procure large-scale assets that will be fractionalized on the blockchain to allow for co-ownership.Two years ago we just had a test case in Perth with three apartments. This year we’ve signed up projects in Thailand, Japan and the US. Clearly disruption and network growth is happening, but we’d like it to happen faster.Like everyone else here, we want to take home the crown, and secure vital help, profile, and support. With this we think we could quadruple our rate of growth. With the XTC credentials, who knows, we could be a decisive factor in meeting the Paris Agreement goals.Which takes us to our final thought. And it’s a big one.Currencies that represent value in this market have the potential to disrupt the existing fossil-fuel based economic system. Our biggest ambition isn’t just to facilitate the revolution in distributed energy, it’s to have energy transacted in a fair, transparent and stable digital currency.It would represent world v2.0 infrastructure.We hope you agree. We think the democratization of power depends on it.Thank you.XTC 2018: Power Ledger’s Final Pitch was originally published in Power Ledger on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Power Ledger Deploys P2P Re...

Power Ledger Deploys P2P Renewable Energy Trading Platform in Largest U.S. Wholesale Electricity MarketPower Ledger today announced the deployment of its peer-to-peer (P2P) renewable energy trading platform at licensed retail electric provider American PowerNet’s headquarters in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania.Power Ledger today announced the deployment of its peer-to-peer (P2P) renewable energy trading platform at licensed retail electric provider American PowerNet’s headquarters in Wyomissing, PA. American PowerNet’s headquarters will use the xGrid platform to trade solar power — garnered from both its office roofs and carports — with neighbors connected in its office park to optimize clean energy for both carbon reductions and decreased electricity costs. The deployment furthers Power Ledger’s goal of enabling a decentralized energy structure that allows regular people to actively participate in the growth of the industry and be accountable for the impact of energy on the environment.“Rather than just dump our excess solar power on to the grid, we’re thrilled we can now provide clean, sustainable power to our neighbors,” said Scott Helm, President of American PowerNet.“Power Ledger’s P2P platform will optimize the offering for all of the participants.”The xGrid deployment is the latest U.S. project from Power Ledger and marks the introduction of its innovative P2P energy trading technology into the Pennsylvania-New Jersey-Maryland Interconnection (PJM), the largest U.S. wholesale electricity market. The deal was made through Power Ledger’s partnership with Clean Energy Blockchain Network (CEBN), who will provide local, hands-on technical assistance with the deployment. Past projects from this partnership include deployments with Silicon Valley Power in Santa Clara, Calif., and Northwestern University in Chicago.American PowerNet plans to commence the deployment this month under the existing deregulation rules with the cooperation of the local utility PPL, utilizing their existing distribution system and connecting the solar assets by utilizing platform data from pre-existing meters without the need for additional hardware, software or engineering fees.“This type of structure can benefit all parties involved,” Helm stated, “and can be recreated in any deregulated territory where a business site has excess solar generation.”“We believe PJM is a key market where the benefits of peer-to-peer energy trading can become mainstream,” said Power Ledger Managing Director and Co-Founder David Martin.“We’re thankful to CEBN for the opportunity to work with American PowerNet and look forward to future deployments alongside them, following the successful completion of this trial.”“This project illustrates the growing customer desire to invest in clean, renewable energy and aligns perfectly with our goal to democratize power, globally.”This American PowerNet deployment comes on the heels of Power Ledger’s recent announcement around its Asset Germination Event (AGE) token, a blockchain-based token that is designed to open up the renewable energy market to retail investors. The AGE token intends to open new sources of capital for energy projects and uses blockchain technology to maintain a secure asset and income register, with a view toward developing renewable energy infrastructure across the world.To participate in Power Ledger’s North American deployments, please email customercare@cleanenergyblockchain.com.About Power Ledger: Power Ledger is the leading peer-to-peer marketplace for renewable energy.
