Proof-Of-Generation Zero-Carbon Blockchain

Rowan Blockchain
Rowan Blockchain is the world's first low-carbon Blockchain. Our blockchain uses a super low powered (therefore low carbon) Proof of Generation consensus mechanism coupled with our bespoke low voltage Rowan SmartMiner. This means you must have generated of renewable energy to validate transactions on our chain.
The Rowan SmartMiner
Our Rowan SmartMiner is based on the low-powered Raspberry Pi and is hosted in properties throughout the UK.  The SmartMiner counts the energy produced by residential rooftop solar whilst transactions are verified on our custom-built Proof of Generation blockchain.

Rowan Coin - The base token for our network
We secure our network with a cryptocurrency called Rowan Coin.  This token prevents fraud on our network and gives each transaction value.  In the future, customers will use Rowan Coin to buy and sell their energy,  pay for their energy bill, offset their carbon footprint using Rowan NFT Carbon Certificates, charge their EVs, and pay for their EVs to be repaired -  plus a whole number of other use cases.  Our Cryptocurrency is a fundamental part of our business infrastructure.

What is Rowan Blockchain?

Rowan Blockchain is the world's first community-supported green energy blockchain. Based on the low-powered POG (Proof-Of-Generation) consensus mechanism.  Rather than utilising traditional energy-hungry mining,  Rowan requires a SmartMiner owner to have generated renewable energy to validate transactions on our chain. We have built a series of Energy focused apps that bring the Energy Market into the 21st Century, decentralising and digitising a traditionally archaic industry.


We want to deliver a low-powered and low-carbon blockchain.
We wanted to build a new kind of blockchain that is solar powered and very low carbon. Within our community our customers validate the energy transactions and are rewarded for the generation of solar energy. We want to achieve this whilst at the same time encourage people to adopt roof top solar.

Using our custom-built Proof of Generation (POG) blockchain, we can deliver a fast, low-powered chain mostly powered by solar energy. Our users support blockchain using our custom-built Rowan SmartMiner. The Rowan SmartMiner counts the energy produced in the home and validates transactions on the blockchain.

The Rowan Blockchain is ideal for hosting Rowan's decentralised applications (DApps) that are energy-focused.  The chain can validate 219 transactions per second.  The applications have many uses, from peer-to-peer energy transactions to Rowan Energy's rewards-based platforms.

Rowan Energy already monitors more than 1.5MW of solar - with deals signed that will push that to well over 100MW in 2024.

Rowan Rewards

Rowan Energy currently monitors more than 1.5MW of solar throughout the UK.  Rowan has been rewarding these solar owners for more than three years.  As a solar owner, you can install a SmartMiner on your property. A SmartMiner is a Smart Meter and a Rowan Blockchain validation server in one. The SmartMiner counts the energy your roof produces while simultaneously validating transactions and minting NFT carbon offset certificates.  Rowan Rewards customers earn 10p worth of Rowan Rewards for every 1kWh of energy produced by their roof. Rowan Rewards customers can withdrawal their Rowan Rewards via PayPal or direct to their bank account.

Decentralised Energy

Rowan has built an automated energy trading platform that enables rooftop solar owners to sell their energy to their neighbours peer-to-peer. The platform is fully automated and runs without any intervention or user input. It matches supply to demand, instantly transferring tokens from consumers to prosumers. SmartMiner readings place buys and sell on a virtual market, pairing up trading partners based on location. The platform has many other features, including real-time energy source notification where you can see where your energy is going or where the energy you are using comes from. Energy can also be stored on-site in a battery and discharged when another Rowan Energy customer needs the energy.

Eliminate Green Washing.

Tracking the energy source within utilities is an important part of what is needed. By utilising features on SmartMiners we can record the production of the energy reporting details of where, how and when the energy was produced. This enables users to see where and how their energy is being generated in real-time.  This eliminates the need for guarantee of origin certificates.

Renewable Energy Certificates (sometimes called a REC or a ROC) are certificates that prove that the source of your energy are from a renewable source. If you own a large wind farm or solar farm you can be assigned a REC for every 1 MW of energy generated. This has made the certificate market inaccessible to roof top or back yard electricity prosumers. Until Now. We have designed a new kind of energy company that has tokenised and fractionised the energy market. This allows the source of the roof top solar energy to be verified and stored on a blockchain. Allowing our customers to benefit from this untapped market.

We are a huge supporter of blockchain technology. Our blockchain is custom built and does not sit on any other well known blockchains. But as a supporter of blockchain our members as well as the usual ways pay for electricity, will be able to settle their accounts using cryprocurrency. The best and easiest way to purchase Crypto is from an exchange. The most popular by far in The Coinbase website is very straightforward and easy to use.
