Energy Web Foundation (EWF) is a global nonprofit unleashing blockchain’s potential in the energy sector. With offices in Switzerland, Germany, and the United States, we’ve assembled a stellar team of experienced energy and blockchain professionals to achieve our vision.
Blockchain technology applied in the energy sector has the potential to reduce transaction costs, enhance data security and transparency, open markets to a larger number of active participants (consumers and devices), and accelerate the transition towards a digitalized, decarbonized, decentralized, democratized and resilient energy system.
Energy Web Foundation (EWF) launched in early 2017. We were co-founded by globally respected energy think-and-do tank Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) and noted blockchain developer Grid Singularity (GSy), along with a cohort of 10 founding Affiliates. RMI and GSy—who today both contribute members to our board of directors (i.e., Foundation Council)—saw blockchain’s promise in the energy sector. EWF was born to make that promise a reality.
