Webinar | Blockchain in the Electricity Industry : How Much Disruption Can We Expect? by Assistant Professor Paul Cuffe

Presented by Paul Cuffe, assistant professor within the University College Dublin School of Electrical & Electronic EngineeringBlockchain Group, this webinar will be a broad, and at times opinionated, discussion about the potential for blockchain disruption in the electricity industry.

Can we expect peer-to-peer electricity trading in the medium term? Will this require new metering infrastructure or regulatory arrangements? How relevant is the “Oracle problem” here: if we trust a centralised entity to install and maintain electricity meters, why not likewise trust them to operate a centralised trading platform?

In answering these questions, Paul will introduce the topic of smart contracts, and will provide a speculative vision for how blockchain can enable exotic new financial arrangements in the electricity industry, for consumers, investors and generators alike.
