Blockchain is a distributed, digital ledger used to record and track information. It uses sophisticated algorithms to validate, encrypt, and instantaneously record this information in a secure and decentralized manner. Most people know it as the technology underpinning Bitcoin, but blockchain has enormous potential to disrupt many industries, including energy.
We have just begun exploring the potential for blockchain, but already we are seeing some initiatives in the energy industry centered around blockchain. This webinar aims to explore the capabilities of blockchain, its disruptive potential and future applications.
- Understand the basics of what blockchain is, how it can be used across different industries and how it can create large productivity gains quickly throughout the energy industry
- Analyse current projects introducing blockchain into the energy industry for automated decentralized energy payments, and how these might be a testbed for automated smart contracts for peer-to-peer communications and payments
- Envisage what the true impact of blockchain in the energy industry will be in and how embracing R+D could place you in the lead
