Energy Web Foundation Releases Blockchain Toolkits For Electric Vehicle Charging

The Energy Web Foundation (EWF) announced the release of a new electric vehicle (EV) charging toolkit to expand functionality of EW Origin.

EW Origin is an open-source decentralized application (blockchain-based) toolkit for verifying and tracking the ownership of green attributes associated with electricity generation and consumption.

The newly released EV charging toolkit determines the avoided marginal carbon emissions based on the timing of EV charging of electric vehicles, e-bikes, and other electric mobility solutions. It is an extension and adaptation of existing EW Origin toolkits offered by Energy Web Foundation (EWF). It will help in supporting the issuance, trading, tracking, and reporting for renewable energy certificates (RECs), guarantees of origin (GOs), and other certificates of origin that underpin renewables markets worldwide.

To demo the EV charging toolkit at European Utility Week in Vienna, EWF has teamed up with Affiliate Wirelane.

According to the announcement, "Wirelane is a full-service provider of electric mobility solutions, including software solutions for EV charging as well as advanced EVSE chargepoint hardware. Through Wirelane’s user interface, EUW attendees can see how kilowatt-hours of electric vehicle charging are paired with renewable energy certificates and avoided marginal emissions are securely tracked on the Energy Web blockchain. Greyp, a tech company that produces high-performance electric bicycles, generously donated an EWF-branded e-bike for the EUW demo."

Product owner of EW Origin at Energy Web Foundation, Jens Griesing, said, “Green energy and electric vehicle charging are a natural fit for each other as we move toward a low-carbon, electrified energy future. The new EV charging toolkit will allow application developers to build blockchain-based solutions that enable EV drivers to charge their vehicles with clean energy, and to confidently know the emissions-reduction benefits of their e-mobility.”

EWF is also inviting EV charging application developers, EVSE manufacturers and network operators, and EV drivers/owners to learn more.
