To facilitate access to the Enosi Platform and its functions, such as electricity trading, a new ERC20 token will be created, called the ‘JOUL’. The ‘JOUL’ will be required to access the Enosi platform functions and the value network within an electricity DAO. ‘JOULs’ will be staked by small retailers in relation to their community membership (businesses and/or households).

‘JOUL’ is derived from ‘joule’, the SI unit of work or energy, equal to the work done by a force of one newton when its point of application moves one meter in the direction of action of the force, equivalent to one 3600th of a watt-hour. Joules were named after James Prescott Joule, the nineteenth century English physicist, mathematician and brewer, born in Salford, Lancashire. Joule studied the nature of heat, and discovered its relationship to mechanical work.

Enosi has secured partnerships and agreements with various energy retailers and players in the industry including, California Clean Energy Foundation, Energy Locals, DC Power, Solar Analytics, Australian Photovoltaic Institute, and signed a cooperative research agreement with the University of New South Wales.

Enosi’s open source blockchain operating system offers a variety of features to reduce costs and obstacles in the green energy market: Enabling competition, disaggregation, reducing regulations hurdles, lowering customer servicing costs, and enabling new innovative technologies to monetize. Lowering the regulatory and establishment hurdles for new market entrants, in particular, will be tackled by Enosi providing a suite of automated “retailer-in-a-box” tools, adaptable for each region.

“We’ve seen what treating the energy space as a monopoly can do to decentralized energy trading and sustainable energy,” said Steve Hoy, CEO of Enosi, “The sector is inundated with outdated and heavily regulated practices, which are met with minimal competition and innovation. Enosi will change all of that. The electricity industry is ripe for disruption, and Enosi’s new approach to support green community energy will bring about the much-needed change that the industry’s been waiting for.”

Vivint teams up with LG for energy storage. Vivint Solar, the Lehi, Utah-based full-service residential solar provider, announced May 16 it is now offering LG Chem RESU batteries, an energy storage system for household use, directly to its California customers. The company plans to expand this solar plus storage solution coast to coast throughout 2018.

The solar-plus-storage solution can help further cut utility bills of customers in areas with time-of-use electricity rates (i.e. electricity costs change throughout the day). For example, customers in time-of-use areas can avoid peak hour costs day and night by using clean solar energy stored in the home battery system for consumption during these costlier periods.

Clean energy powers your dental ‘cleaning’. The nation’s largest privately owned dental distributor recently received a certification for its environmental responsibility from Dubin-based IGS Energy, acknowledging that the company’s CenterPoint East home office will run on 100 percent renewable energy from May 2018 through April 2021.

Benco Dental’s CenterPoint East location at 295 CenterPoint Boulevard, Pittston, Pennsylvania, uses more than 2,000,000 kW hours each year and relies on energy produced by wind turbines in Texas, where rotating blades harness the wind’s kinetic energy. Today, wind turbines provide electricity all over the world, according to IGS Energy, through this renewable resource that is both efficient and environmentally friendly.
