Mission Statement of Association

To unleash this potential, EWF will a) identify, document and assess the most promising use cases of blockchain technology in the energy sector and b) launch a new energy-focused blockchain platform (“Energy Web Platform”) that provides the functionalities needed to implement these use cases at scale.

The intent of EWF, through its Energy Web Platform, is to develop a market standard that ensures interoperability, reduces costs and complexity, aligns currently dispersed blockchain initiatives, and facilitates technology deployment through easy-to-implement application.
