The Powerledger Chain is designed to enable the development of scalable decentralized applications (dApps) capable of handling thousands of transactions per second at a low cost. It utilizes a customized permissioned Solana blockchain, employing proof-of-history and proof-of-stake consensus mechanisms to achieve high throughput with lower energy consumption compared to proof-of-work blockchains.

These solutions are being implemented in various countries, such as Australia, India, the US, and multiple locations in Europe and Asia.

The company emphasizes the role of decentralization in addressing the challenges of the growing distributed energy system. The Powerledger Chain offers a balanced approach between decentralization and centralization, enabling stakeholders to negotiate grid management through smart contracts on the public blockchain platform. Powerledger sees this development as a significant step in providing scalable, secure, and energy-efficient solutions for a greener and more sustainable energy future.
