Who we are
Founded with over 100 years of energy industry experience and a world-class development team, Power Ledger gives companies and communities the tools they need to enable a new world for energy.
We believe in a world where blackouts are a thing of the past, where electricity is clean, affordable and available to everyone. Where sustainability and profitability go hand in hand, and consumers have the power to manage their energy costs.
We envision the creation of a different kind of energy market, and we’ve built a series of blockchain-based products to help you get there.
Help retailers manage their demand and supply
Consumers can contribute to solving price spikes and demand shortages that bedevil the industry. This means people with solar and batteries can sell their excess energy back to their energy company in near real-time, while making the overarching energy system more reliable.
Allow everyday investors to own a piece of tomorrow’s energy system
Our platform means everyday retail investors can invest in and co-own large-scale renewable assets like solar farms and batteries, with less upfront capital while receiving an attractive and proportionate return.
Monetize carbon and renewable energy credits sooner
Historically monetizing credits has been a difficult job, especially for the sellers who’ve had to navigate mountains of paperwork, processes and fragmented thinking. We make it simple. You connect our platform to smart meters, and our system obtains the credits, finds a seller and sends you the money.
“There is so much magic in this world that people stop realizing it. When people turn on the light and the bulb turns on after not even a second they take it for granted. If we think about it, this is real magic. Elecricity is magic.”

Why we do it
Whether blockchain had come along or not, energy markets are undergoing unprecedented change. Through uptake, the cost of solar, wind and battery power has dropped below that of fossil fuels. Consumers are taking control of their own energy supply by installing solar and battery, meaning distributed energy resources are more widespread than ever before.
But for all the change we still have a system where, increasingly, people are frustrated about paying so much for electricity and not getting a fair return on their solar investments. A system where storms or heatwaves can leave entire cities without power. Where not everyone can invest in renewable infrastructure and carbon initiatives are restricted by clunky registries.
We’re using people power, quite literally, to improve our energy systems to make them clean, reliable and affordable. It’s a movement we call the democratization of power.
