The Project origination is the process by which new clean energy-generating assets are funded and eventually included into the Reserve. The origination of Projects can come from:
The acquisition of already operational projects, or
The creation or development of new projects by an Installer company going through a process of Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC).
In either case, the Protocol issues Project tokens (pWatts) and the funds to develop or purchase the project are collected as pWatts are sold through the primary marketplace.
The Protocol uses a milestone-based approach to automate the disbursement of the funds according to the fulfillment of technical requirements and the submission of evidence of the development or acquisition of the project.
