Abstract. The problem of implementing modern technologies into the electric power industry is quite relevant in the world. The article considers the models of decentralized platforms providing services for energy distribution and trade, their main advantages and disadvantages. The basic principles of tokenization were developed, which allow optimizing of the energy systems and concentration of the crowd funding process for the construction of new generation facilities.
