Signing of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to Explore the Leveraging of Power Assets for Interactive Content that Contributes to Society

Greenway Grid Global Pte. Ltd. *1 (Headquarters: Singapore; President and CEO: Kazuhiko Shiba, hereinafter referred to as, “GGG”), Digital Entertainment Asset Pte. Ltd. *2 (Headquarters: Singapore; Founder & CEO: Naoto Yoshida, Founder & Co-CEO: Kozo Yamada, hereinafter referred to as, “DEA”), and TEPCO Power Grid, Inc.  (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President and Executive Officer: Yoshinori Kaneko, hereinafter referred to as, “TEPCO PG”) have signed a memorandum of understanding to explore the leveraging of electric power assets for interactive content that contributes to society.*3.

The objective of this MoU is to enable the three companies to consider solutions that leverage WEB3.0*4 technology in order to achieve a sustainable society. The interactive content to be developed and examined under this agreement aims to enable users to enjoy while helping to solve problems faced by infrastructure companies based on the concept of “Creating a Sustainable Future Together.”

The content will consist of enjoyable games that actually aid with the maintenance of local infrastructure facilities, such as by detecting abnormalities before problems manifest, etc., thereby contributing to society. Additionally, mechanisms that leverage power asset NFTs*5 to enhance the gaming experience, such as enabling players to earn tokens*6 based on gameplay, will also be considered.

GGG views the global expansion of WEB3.0 as an opportunity and will continue to manufacture and produce power asset NFTs while exploring mechanisms for creating added value by leveraging electric power asset NFTs.

DEA aims to enable everyone to simultaneously experience Web3 entertainment while contributing to a sustainable society through Play to Earn, and is leading game development efforts.

TEPCO PG aims to create new methods for leveraging electric power assets in partnership with collaborators, thereby delivering unique value through close-to-home electric power assets and enhancing the efficiency of facility maintenance.

Moving forward, the three companies will continue detailed discussions as they aim to commence trial operations in Japan by the beginning of 2024.
