Leveraging Blockchain for Sustainable Energy

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 (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? As an engaged stakeholder, 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 U.S.
