Blockchain will underpin our future energy system

  • The combination of smart grids, prosumers and blockchain may build a transparent platform for the cheap, clean flow of renewable energy from the grid to homes and from homes to the grid.
  • With over half the world population now living in cities, mass transport, energy systems and integration of distributed renewable energy are becoming ever more important, as is the growth of new services on top of information and communication technologies.
  • Blockchain technology has the potential to make distributed grid management easier through “smart contracts”.
  • Blockchain technology could also have a direct impact on grid management and storage, and play a central role in the rise of so-called “virtual power plants” – energy-generating resources connected across a smart grid but that aren’t necessarily concentrated in one central location.
  • Blockchain technology can disrupt the energy system and boost energy democracy.

Blockchain today might be like the internet in 1993: even though most of us don’t know what it is, a decade from now you will wonder how society ever fun…
