Prosume offers three energy solutions to accommodate different regulatory frameworks.
The first solution allows energy exchange between producers, consumers and utilities/ESCO where peer-to-peer sale is not an option because laws, taxes or grid/network costs. In this closed scenario prices are set by the utility and agreed upon by peers, within a logical exchange always happening over the utility/distributor as required by law.
The second solution still uses a private “permissioned blockchain” for Utility/Escos as permitted by law, where a simpler peer-to-peer market exchange ecosystem is implemented to set ask/bid price routines.
The third solution is the global p2p energy market exchange, a system that enables prosumers from anywhere in the world to sign up and trade energy using a public blockchain based exchange market.
All our solutions aim to not use Proof of Work to avoid energy wasting on mining, instead we use Proof-of-Delegated-Stake Blockchain (or Proof-of-stake or Proof-of-Cooperation in some cases) to avoid wasting energy for mining. Possible other solutions will be evaluated in the future in case better consensus mechanism arise.
