About Product
In recent years distributed power economy started to emerge. That is people going off the grid, supplying their own electricity and creating microgrids. While renewable energy is good for the environment, staying connected to the system and using excess power efficiently is more beneficial for the community. This is also a win-win for the government. POWR is first to market with working prototypes. It has a use case and users but the importance and market size might not be apparent without a deeper research.

About Execution
This is a long-term project. According to their roadmap, it would take quite some time before we see mass adoption. However, the interesting thing about the project is in some parts of the world, both electricity users and providers consider using these kinds of solutions. New houses build with microgrids in mind, use of solar panel is in %25 in western Australia, governments looking for nation level founding and Power Ledger is making partnerships around the world.
Editor's note

The system we are used to in the last 50-60 years might be changing faster than most of us think. POWR looks like a good use case of the blockchain. We would argue that this is not a short-term buy, however, as many of you aware cryptocurrency economy is highly speculative and many might find this project undervalued.
