POWR คือโทเค็น Ethereum ที่ขับเคลื่อนการทำงานของแพลตฟอร์ม Powerledger โดยมีเป้าหมายเพื่อส่งเสริมการเทรดพลังงานแบบเพียร์ทูเพียร์ (P2P) การเข้าร่วม Powerledger จำเป็นต้องใช้โทเค็น POWR อีกทั้งโทเค็นนี้ยังใช้ทำอะไรอีกหลายอย่างบนแพลตฟอร์ม ไม่ว่าจะเป็นการเทรดพลังงาน การติดตามพลังงานสะอาด ไปจนถึงการตรวจสอบ
Powerledger (POWR) is a technology company that develops software for decentralized energy markets, with the aim of contributing to a sustainable future. The company has created a -based platform that facilitates the tracking and trading of energy, flexibility services, and environmental commodities. Powerledger's mission is to provide a platform for a modern, market-driven grid that aims to offer consumers a choice in their energy sources. The platform operates on two blockchain layers and uses two , the Powerledger (POWR) and Sparkz tokens. The POWR token is an token that serves as a license for businesses to access Powerledger’s platform.
Powerledger operates on the public blockchain and a private consortium blockchain known as EcoChain™. The POWR token, an ERC-20 token, acts as a license required for businesses to access Powerledger’s platform. Powerledger's platform is modular and scalable, with products divided into three key pillars: energy trading and traceability, flexibility trading, and environmental commodities trading. These products can be contracted separately and scaled as needed. Powerledger's technology enables renewable energy asset owners to decide who they want to sell their energy to and at what price, potentially providing a revenue stream.
Powerledger's platform has a wide range of potential use cases. It can be used to manage grid stability and flexibility services, manage a 24/7 renewable energy portfolio, facilitate energy trading, and develop sustainable residential and commercial developments. Powerledger's technology can also be used to facilitate the trading of environmental commodities such as renewable energy certificates and carbon credits, aiming to make these processes more transparent and efficient. Furthermore, Powerledger's platform can be used to track the provenance and flow of energy, giving consumers choice over the energy they're using.
