Powerledger partners with Silicon Valley Power on Renewable Energy Tracking for Electric Vehicles

The Powerledger team has today announced a ground-breaking collaboration with Silicon Valley Power (SVP), City of Santa Clara.


  • Powerledger’s first carbon credit project.
  • The Powerledger platform will be used in one of the biggest multi-storey EV charging facilities in California.
  • The project will create a digital record of the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) transactions. The aim is to cut both time and cost in the processing of LCFS credits.

Powerledger has today announced a ground-breaking collaboration with Silicon Valley Power (SVP), City of Santa Clara.

The project will link renewable energy production and storage with community-based charging of electric vehicles (EVs).

The Powerledger platform uses world-leading blockchain technology to create a transparent, auditable and automated record of energy generation, storage and consumption.

The project will integrate the platform with renewable energy assets in order to:

  1. Track and manage the production and consumption of low-carbon energy from Santa Clara solar and batteries, through one of the largest public multi-storey electric vehicle charging facilities in California;
  2. Digitize Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) management system transactions to support the tracking of low-carbon electricity as a fuel path and achieve the goal of cutting time and cost in processing LCFS credits.

The platform will connect city-owned PV and the SVP electric power grid by utilizing API data from pre-existing meters without the need for additional hardware, software or engineering fees.

“Silicon Valley Power is a leader when it comes to implementing innovative customer programs with cost-saving technology and digital accountability,” Powerledger Managing Director and Co-Founder David Martin said.

“We’re excited to demonstrate how the platform can assist with cutting both costs and carbon in a simple manner with a secure and clean energy source.”.

“We’re looking forward to using the Powerledger platform to enable the tracking of carbon- free electricity from source to customer electric vehicles,” Silicon Valley Power Chief Electric Utility Officer John Roukema said.

“This will provide a clear audit trail in support of proposed changes to the low carbon fuel standard program that will allow for incremental credits while automating the entire process.”
