Welcome to Week 3

During this third week, we are going to introduce the current situation in the energy sector and the new energy paradigm, being blockchain one of its key enablers.

We are going to present Power Ledger, a trading platform based on blockchain, as well as the main functionalities that will be operating in it. Regarding this, one of the main objectives of the week is to explain how one can enable peer-to-peer energy transactions between prosumers. Prosumers are households or organisations which at times produce surplus fuel or energy and feed it into a national (or local) distribution network.

As a conclusion, in the last video of this week you will meet Xue Wang, Business Developer at Innoenergy Sweden. She will be explaining the approach that Power2You is following to implement blockchain technology in the energy sector.
