Summary WePower is a blockchain-based green energy trading network: http://wepower.network. WePower offers token, which value grows in real assets together with WePower expansion, it is backed by green energy and ensures liquidity.

Description

WePower enables renewable energy producers to raise capital by issuing their own energy to- kens. These tokens represent energy they commit to produce and deliver. Energy tokenization standardizes simplifies and opens globally currently existing energy investment ecosystem. As a result energy producers can trade directly with the green energy buyers (consumers and in- vestors) and raise capital by selling energy upfront, at below market rates. Energy tokenization ensures liquidity and extends access to capital. The WePower blockchain solution is currently recognized by Elering, one of the most innovative Transmission System Operators in Europe. To optimize the financing cycle and open access to capital, WePower enables energy tokeniza- tion. Tokenized energy represents a contracting mechanism between an energy producer and energy buyer. WPR token holders will have priority access to participate in auctions for purchasing tokenized energy once the renewable energy plant is connected to the platform. Energy allocation will depend on the number of WPR tokens held by the participant. Moreover, WPR token holders are rewarded by no less than 0.9% of tokenized energy donated directly by the renewable en- ergy providers. WPR token holders may use or sell this energy. WePower is a blockchain-based green energy trading platform. WePower comes to the market at a crucial time. Due to a drop in subsidies and increased re- newable energy development competing at market price, banks started increasing demand for own capital decreasing debt to capital ratio. It moved from 20:80 to close to 50:50 ratio for newly developing renewable energy projects. Equity capital became a limited source of financ- ing contributing to a plunge (-23% YoY) in investment due to smaller leverages. Energy tokenization together with a platform built on an open decentralized data-base, opens the green energy market globally to a broad pool of investors. In an open platform, new ener- gy projects do not depend on only local investors., Asset liquidity allows more favorable capi- tal-to-debt ratios without using Government subsidies. We estimate that the simplification of the investment process through WePower will significantly reduce financing costs, which is eventually split between renewable energy producers and consumers/investors.
