Leveraging Blockchain For Sustainable Energy: A WCS Talk In Palo Alto

The number of investments, partnerships, and consortia for blockchain technology keeps growing, and more companies are taking a closer look at this disruptive technology. At this Women in Cleantech & Sustainability event, an expert panel will explain blockchain technology and discuss key topics, such as how the technology is currently being used in the energy sector, who the main actors are working on blockchain, and interesting applications and use cases that are being explored.

Blockchain technology is one of the hottest topics in energy innovation. The number of investments, partnerships, and consortia keeps growing, and more companies are taking a closer look at this disruptive technology. But for all its hype and potential, blockchain technology is still in its infancy and several challenges must be addressed, such as regulation, high energy consumption from mining, complexity of the technology, grid security, and cyber-security threats.

How can the blockchain enable a more sustainable energy system? This is the question that Women in Cleantech and Sustainability (WCS), in partnership with the City of Palo Alto Utilities and EDF (Electricity of France), will address with a panel featuring executives from top utilities, industrials and energy companies in California and the US.

The panel will explain blockchain technology and discuss key topics, such as how the technology is currently being used in the energy sector, who the main actors are working on blockchain, and interesting applications and use cases that are being explored.

For example, several energy companies already are using a blockchain trading platform, called Tobalaba, to trade energy services.
