Proof of Renewable Energy Production (PREP) Chain:
Brightly Blowing Beyond Bitcoin

Now in development, the PREP Chain is a blockchain technology and EVM-compatible smart contracts platform that directly incentivizes production of energy through selected renewable sources as an alternative to other consensus protocols, especially the widely used Proof of Work protocol which directly incentivizes consumption of energy. For an executive summary, click here.

The PREP consensus protocol maintains the importance of making mining capabilities costly and noticeable while eliminating most of the energy consumption associated with proof of work and avoiding centralizing forces found in that and other consensus protocols.

The energy produced can then be used for any other purpose that the owner/operator of the generation equipment chooses, including sale to a grid. Any benefits received from participation in PREP are intended to accrue in addition to all other incentives for renewable energy production, further incentivizing adoption of the technology. This provides for quality local jobs, healthier people, animals, crops, and ecosystems, and a more habitable planet for a longer term. PREP also incentivizes development and design choices that maximize production rather than cost.

PREP will help unlock the potential of distributed applications focused on sustainablity impacts such as carbon credit trading and sustainable supply chain track-and-trace, in addition to providing a good-conscious choice for a very wide variety of other decentralized applications which may exist on other blockchains today.
