Electric cars need charging points to charge their vehicle. But how to verify what car can charge at which chargingpoint and needs to pay what amount for the electricity charged? Werenodes simplifies the connection to the charging network and makes the data auditable and verifiable by use of the Tezos blockchain. This way anyone with an accessible charging point, can make it available and charge a small fee for people that use their charging point.
"If you have an accessible charging point with a connected plug, you just have to register your EV supply equipment on the Werenode app. You state the availability of the parking slot with this charging feature, check the internet connection of the plug and you are ready to help the other EV riders and earn some money in the process." - Source
Werenode has been working with Edukera, which is the development team that has created Archetype. Archetype is a smartcontract language on Tezos which allows formal verification, which is a formal way of providing proof that a smartcontract does what is has been designed to do. Formal verification is a methodology commonly used in mission-critical environments such as the aerospace, nuclear, and semiconductor industries. And within the blockchain space, formal verification is one of the unique selling points of Tezos. Besides formal verification, Werenode has chosen Tezos, due to the fact that Tezos uses Proof of Stake, which is far more energy efficient compared to Proof of Work. Also Tezos' on-chain governance system is a quality that inspires confidence for long lasting functionality for Werenode on Tezos.
Werenode is founded by Dr. Benoît Maïsseu, general manager for Electric Vehicles at the Renault, Nissan, and Mitsubishi Alliance.
Werenode announced yesterday, that they migrated from testnet to the Tezos mainnet.

Werenode users will be able to pay for their charging period with Visa, MasterCard, Bank transfer, or Werecoin tokens which is a Tezos-based cryptocurrency.
