New Energy Update is now Reuters Events - LEARN MORE
More than 2000 listeners to our Energy Web Foundation webinar!
In case you missed the webinar, or wanted just to catch up again, here is the video to our webinar with the Energy Web Foundation's Doug Miller and Amy Westervelt here.
It's been a while since our last post as we've been away for work but expect big interviews and articles the next few weeks as we cover important opportunities, such as:
Unlocking Late-life Asset Liquidity: with blockchain offering greater security, network validation and transparency there are huge opportunities for deploying blockchain tech to help open liquidity and investment potential in generation assets. This in turn, would provide developers with a critical cash boost to pursue late life extension or 'repowering' efforts.
Smart Service Contracts: while it is a common mistake to assume that smart contracts negate middlemen or legal resources, the potential for smart contracts to monitor and execute transactions autonomously gives new zeal to owners looking to implement complicated 'yield' based performance incentives, particularly in renewable energy.
Decentralized EV to Grid: here blockchain could help provide the missing ingredient to support microtransactions between electric vehicles and the grid as a form of mass decentralised energy storage and demand response programs.
There's such a wealth of applications for blockchain outside the well-covered 'cryptocurrency' and 'trading' worlds. We look forward to covering applications like the above and more over the next few weeks, so if you have a story to share just get in touch!
