区块链公司WePower使企业能够轻松获取可再生能源

2021-2-6 15:34

由日本丸红投资的区块链创业公司WePower推出了一种新的解决方案,使企业能够在典型的电子商务体验中轻松购买可再生能源。澳大利亚电力零售商Mojo Power是第一家使用被称为Elemental的白色标签市场的公司。


WePower token化电力合同,实现能源细分。但如果一家公司购买了超过其需求的能源,它也可以转售。在许多国家,消费者或企业可以很容易地在电力设施之间切换。其目的是使从可再生能源获取电力同样容易。


一般来说,可再生能源是由企业或公用事业公司通过正式的电力购买协议(PPA)从可再生能源生产商手中购买的。这通常涉及一个固定数量的电力几年的固定时期。(如果公司搬家了怎么办?)所以PPA是不灵活的而且工作量很大。


WePower此前曾与Mojo合作,现在在其Elemental解决方案中,这项工作已为其他零售商标准化。所以零售商Mojo和维多利亚的Robinvale太阳能农场签订了PPA协议。这种能量已经被代币化,所以Mojo可以将能量块出售给不同的买家,而能量买家可以转售未使用的数量。


Mojo的董事总经理沃伦•墨菲(Warren Murphy)表示:“Mojo正在消除对复杂能源采购程序的依赖,使各种规模的公司都能以完全透明的方式轻松购买当地的绿色能源。”


除了让零售商推出针对企业客户的可再生能源产品外,WePower Elemental还让电力零售商更容易与可再生能源生产商签约。


与此同时,其他促进可再生能源消费的区块链计划也在增加。P2P交易(P2P)似乎是一种常见的解决方案,它使家庭和企业能够交易他们多余的太阳能。澳大利亚的Power Ledger已经在印度和奥地利开展了P2P试点。东京工业大学还与三菱电机公司合作开发了一个P2P能源交易区块链平台。可再生能源证书(RECs)是另一种常见的应用。泰国能源公司PTT与能源网络基金会合作,开发了一个基于区块链的可再生能源证书市场。

WePower, a blockchain startup backed by Japan’s Marubeni, has unveiled a new solution to enable corporates to easily buy renewable energy in a typical e-commerce experience. Mojo Power, an Australian electricity retailer, is the first to use the white-labeled marketplace known as Elemental.

WePower tokenizes power contracts, enabling the energy to be fractionalized. But if a corporate has bought more energy than it needs, it can also resell it. In many countries, a consumer or business can easily switch between electricity utilities. The aim is to make it just as easy to secure electricity from a renewable source. 

Typically renewable energy is bought by a corporate or utility from a renewable producer through a formal Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). This usually involves a set amount of electricity for a fixed period of several years. What happens if the company moves? So PPA’s are not flexible and it’s a non-trivial amount of work.

WePower has previously worked with Mojo, and that work has now been standardized for other retailers in its Elemental solution. So retailer Mojo entered into a PPA agreement with the Robinvale Solar Farm in Victoria. And that power has been tokenized so that Mojo can sell blocks of energy to different buyers, and the power buyer can resell unused amounts. 

“Mojo is eliminating the dependence on the complicated energy procurement procedures and enabling companies of all sizes to buy local green energy with full transparency easily,” said Mojo’s Managing Director Warren Murphy.

Apart from enabling retailers to launch renewable products targeted at corporate clients, WePower Elemental also makes it easier for electricity retailers to contract with renewable producers. 

Meanwhile, other blockchain initiatives fostering renewable energy consumption are on the rise. Peer-to-Peer trading (P2P) seems to be a common solution that enables households and businesses to trade their excess solar energy. Australia’s Power Ledger has carried out P2P trials in India and Austria. The Tokyo Institute of Technology also partnered with Mitsubishi Electric Corporation to develop a P2P energy trading blockchain platform. Renewable energy certificates (RECs) are another common application. Thai energy company PTT developed a blockchain-based marketplace for renewable energy certificates in collaboration with the Energy Web Foundation.
