About the World Energy Council:
The World Energy Council is the principal impartial network of leaders and practitioners promoting an affordable, stable and environmentally sensitive energy system for the greatest benefit of all. Formed in 1923, the Council is the UN-accredited global energy body, representing the entire energy spectrum, with more than 3000 member organisations located in over 90 countries and drawn from governments, private and state corporations, academia, NGOs and energy-related stakeholders.
The World Energy Council informs global, regional and national energy strategies by hosting high-level events, publishing authoritative studies, and working through its extensive member network to facilitate the world’s energy policy dialogue.
The energy industry is evolving into the digital age with a focus on decarbonization, distributed energy resources, and consumer empowerment. Advancements in technology and emissions reductions goals have led to an increase in both renewable energy sources (RES) and distributed energy resources (DER). However, our ability to achieve this new vision and operate evolving energy systems will require improved communication, near-frictionless data exchanges, and new incentives for consumer participation. Blockchain technology is already playing an important role in addressing these challenges. Both incumbents and new market entrants are creating blockchain-based solutions for the energy sector to enable peer-to-peer energy trading, increase transparency, automate processes and transactions, and generate opportunities for cost saving. Join us for a conversation with industry leaders to explore how blockchain technology is providing novel solutions to the frictions and challenges besetting the energy industry.
