PHASE 1: Rowan Energy Blockchain
Rowan Energy Blockchain is the world's first community-supported Green Energy Blockchain. Our blockchain uses a super low powered (therefore low carbon) Proof of Authority consensus mechanism, Each of our members takes a role either validating the energy transactions or generating renewable electricity and selling it back to the community.

PHASE 2: Rowan Renewable Energy Certificates (REC)
A REC is a renewable energy certificate is an asset-backed token that represents 1KW/h of energy generated by rooftop solar.  The blockchain shows who, where, when and how the electricity is generated. These certificates are used to offset your carbon footprint and represent 0.5KG of carbon.

Phase 3: Rowan Energy
Rowan Energy is the worlds first Community Fed Green Energy Company. Using existing infrastructure, we enable owners of rooftop solar to sell their generated energy to other consumers peer to peer bringing in the best returns possible for solar and the cheapest green energy on the market. Fully traceable back to the source, our energy is truly green and reported in real-time.

What is Rowan Energy Blockchain?

Rowan Energy is the world's first community-supported green energy blockchain. Based on the low powered POA consensus mechanism, which uses certificates to authorise transactions rather than utilising traditional energy-hungry mining. We have built a series of Energy focused apps that bring the Energy Market into the 21st Century, decentralising and digitising a traditionally archaic industry.

Vision

We want to turn the energy market on its head, with a blockchain driven decentralized energy community.
We wanted to build a new kind of blockchain that is truly decentralized. Within our energy community our customers validate the energy transactions and are rewarded for their contribution to the community. We want to achieve this whilst at the same time encourage people to buy green energy and also have solar installed to produce their own green energy.

Using a custom-built Proof of Authority (POA) blockchain we can distribute to our members and supports as low powered Rowan Hub that is hosted in the home. These devices confirm the transactions on the blockchain and give its owners daily rewards for doing so, in the future these rewards can be used to offset their energy costs.

In the future, our members will be able to buy their electricity from other members peer to peer and in almost real-time. Our energy is generated primarily by its members, any extra energy requirements will be bought as a club from renewable sources, giving us the buying power of a large customer base allowing us to negotiate excellent deals.

OUR PRODUCTS

REward

You can create your own reward token on our blockchain. This allows energy providers to join our network with their own token and this means they can also adopt our software platforms. As our blockchain is decentralised and transactions can be viewed by anyone itmakes it ideal for reward points programs and charity donations.

REtrader

Retrader is our peer to peer energy trading platform that enables owners of roof top solar tosell their energy to their neighbours peer to peer. The platform is fully automated and runs without any intervention or users input. It matches supply to demand transferring tokensfrom consumers to prosumers almost instantly. Smart meter readings place buys and sellson a virtual market, pairing up trading partners based on location.The platform has many other features including real time energy source notification whereyou can actually see where your energy is going or where the energy you are using actually comes from. Energy can also be stored on site in a battery and discharged at a later time when the market is more profitable.

REtrace

Tracking the source of the energy within utilities is an important part of what is needed. By utilising features on newly produced smart meters we can record the production of the energy holding details of Where, how and when the energy was produced. This enables users to generate their own tokenised energy certificates making not only trading of these certs fast and easy. But relieving the prosumer from the cost of buying the certs (currently about 5p per kW) in order to guarantee their energy is green.

FAQ

First a for most we built Rowan Energy to encourage people to install roof top solar. We have done this by enabling customers to buy and sell solar between them giving consumers affordable green energy and better and quicker returns for the solar energy.

Renewable Energy Certificates (sometimes called a REC or a ROC) are certificates that prove that the source of your energy are from a renewable source. If you own a large wind farm or solar farm you can be assigned a REC for every 1 MW of energy generated. This has made the certificate market inaccessible to roof top or back yard electricity prosumers. Until Now. We have designed a new kind of energy company that has tokenised and fractionised the energy market. This allows the source of the roof top solar energy to be verified and stored on a blockchain. Allowing our customers to benefit from this untapped market.

As we are driving to decentralise our energy company we wanted to make each of our customers part of the Rowan ecosystem. Our members can choose to have a small low powered Rowan Hub in their home that verifies each energy transaction on our Rowan Blockchain. It's true that Blockchain miners are usually very wastfull when it comes to transaction verification, but we have built our own blockchain using a Proof of Authority consensus. Meaning our miners are small and low powered. ‘Proof-of-authority’ puzzles constitute the tool to distribute authority to network participants. Just as the real world with a central entity with the authority to accept or reject transactions, and with the ability to ensure, among other things, that assets are not stolen or spent twice, the blockchain involves the processing of transactions by decentralized market participants (i.e. ‘Rowan Hubs’), our customers are rewarded with Rowan Tokens that they can use to further lower their electricity costs.

We are still launching our product. But crowd funding will start June 2019. You can truly be a part of this epic journey.

Yes! All our customers will have a referral link that they can share with their friends and family. Once a person signs up using that link the referrer gets some Rowan Loyalty tokens in return, these tokens can be used to offset your energy costs.

We are a huge supporter of blockchain technology. Our blockchain is custom built and does not sit on any other well known blockchains. But as a supporter of blockchain our members as well as the usual ways pay for electricity, will be able to settle their accounts using cryprocurrency. The best and easiest way to purchase Crypto is from an exchange. The most popular by far in www.coinbase.com. The Coinbase website is very straightforward and easy to use.
