What is “Proof of Existence” (PoE)?

Proof of Existence utilises the unique electrical signature of a device in combination with digital “heartbeat” or packet flow off the SHM to continually prove the functioning of an asset. Each infrastructure component has a unique identifier, such as battery storage curve characteristics (see whitepaper).

As such, a bad actor attempting to fraudulently provision infrastructure would first have to compromise the security of the individual SHM and simulate their unique characteristics simultaneously with every other SHM in the array – a process that becomes increasingly difficult to try orchestrate with scale that solar PV panels are deployed.
