INNOVATIVE PROJECTS IN ENERGY & ENVIRONMENT
Market intelligence and data on blockchain companies and projects in the Energy & Environment Sector
PONTON is a software company providing standard-based solutions for B2B processes in the energy industry. PONTON implements B2B integration projects using its own software products Ponton X/P for peer-to-peer messaging with end-to-end-encryption, and Ponton X/D and E/A for Enterprise Application Integration.
In 2016, PONTON pioneered the application of blockchain technology to energy trading, first with the Enerchain project, which saw the first wholesale trade of energy via blockchain in Europe, and as a recipient of a NEW 4.0 research grant from the German ministry of economics and energy. PONTON extended this approach with projects such as Gridchain. In the blockchain space, PONTON uses its own WRMHL framework.
Since 2000, PONTON has been a key enabler of XML-based global B2B networks. This started with papiNet, consisting of more than 70 paper manufacturers, logistics providers, printers and publishers automating processes such as order, delivery, and invoicing across the supply chain.
Starting in 2004, hundreds of wholesale traders of energy and commodities such as utilities and banks organized in the EFETnet consortium have begun using Ponton-built software to automate their trading and settlement processes including deal confirmations.
Since 2012, a big part of PONTON's work with EFETnet has been focussed on regulatory compliance under Dodd-Frank, EMIR, REMIT, ElCom, FinfraG, and MiFID II.
In addition to its product-based offerings, PONTON also offers services such as:
- Development of individual software applications
- Maintenance, support and customizing of their products
- Consultation on the implementation of their products

Detailed Project View
Project Description and Key Details
Project details projects including the status and phase, primary country of deployment, blockchain platform utilizied. Details around the blockchain technology include the blockchain platform platform used as well as the privacy of the network whether it be a public network or a private permissioned network. Also project details include key project dates which are the project announcement date, anticipated launch date, and project end date if applicable.
Key Project Dates
Project End Date:
Description of the project deployment along a set of key questions focusing on describing the type of project and clarifying elements around the scope, targeted value propositions, and unique attributes of a specific deployment.
Project Partners and Participation
An overview of project partners, key end users, and strategic advisors playing various roles in the the development, deployment, and the operation of a project.
Project Partner Role
Project Segmentation and Industry Positioning
Project Segmentation 1 | Blockchain Use Case Categories
Blockchain projects typically fall within certain Use Case categories. Use-Case categories are used to sort and classify projects by business model type and value proposition.
Blockchain Use Case Category
Project Segmentation 2 | Energy Industry-Specific Positioning
Industry-specific project segmentation occurs on the basis of three distinct categories. Energy and Environment Position, Energy Value Chain, Transactive Energy, and Technology Adjacency:
Energy and Environment Position: Industry positioning specific to the energy and environment sector which may include designations such as power, natural gas, oil, water, waste, etc.
Energy Value Chain: Projects are positioned along the multiple steps of the energy value chain spanning from production to consumption
Technology Adjacency: Project exposure to technologies used in the energy and environment sector which may include specific types of generation, transmission infrastructure, or other grid-edge facilities like electric vehicle charging stations
E & E Industry Position
Energy Value Chain
Project Segmentation 3 | Other Segmentations
Other project segmentations define additional project characteristics such as the inclusion of transactive energy functions oand targeted consumer / user segments.
Transactive Energy: Projects may or may not include transactive energy applications including demand response management, peer-to-peer transactions, or ancillary services
Targeted Users / Consumers: Answers what types of users / consumers this project is relevant to, whether on the scale of serving individual consumers in on a residential-basis or on a large scale of serving commercial and industrial customer or even governments
Blockchain Token Utilization
Token ecosystems and utilization may or may not play a key role in the deployment of blockchain projects. Projects utilizing tokens typically fall within standard utilization categories characterized as security token and utility token functions.
