About Blockchain Energy Asia

Blockchain is regarded as a revolutionary and transformative technology, potentially disrupting the energy field.  What are the current and future applications of blockchain in the renewable energy field? How will it impact current business models? Is it revolutionary or speculative hype?
To answer those questions, this conference will bring together developers, utilities, startups, consultants, technology leaders, investors and regulators exploring the present and future of blockchain in renewable energy.

Asia is now becoming a hotspot for blockchain-energy applications. An increasing amount of utilities are doing pilot projects, markets are being liberalized, governments are experimenting with blockchain and an ever-increasing and vibrant startup scene is gaining momentum. With a huge appetite for energy and the increasing penetration of renewable resources, Asia is set to be the perfect place for blockchain-energy applications

09:15 Keynote: Redefining the Global Economy with Solar and Blockchain
Combining blockchain technology and decentralized renewable energy provides an unprecedented opportunity to solve energy poverty, democratise energy access, revolutionize today's dysfunctional and deeply-entrenched centralised energy and financial systems, finally ushering in the true Silicon Age.
Blockchain-based finance removes roadblocks to solar proliferation and enables the democratisation and decentralisation of today's global energy systems.
Blockchain offers a single, secure financial transnational layer through which value generated from sun, wind, ocean and geothermal energy can be transferred around the world.
Combining blockchain and solar can create a positive feedback loop and a global solid-state, passive economy of abundance.

11:40 Use case: Peer-to-Peer energy trading. Lessons from Power Ledger's T77 pilot project in Bangkok with BCPG.
Peer-to-Peer (p2p) energy trading is the landmark (and most common) application that blockchain promises. In this session we will discuss this use case within the Asian energy landscape.
Energy considerations of the consensus mechanisms
Who pays for the poles and wires?
The new role of the utilities
Is this fitting for the Asian markets?
How to bridge the physical and digital worlds?

12:10 Use case: Blockchain as the true enabler of the microgrid. Lessons from LO3's projects in the region.
Microgrids are slowly becoming ubiquitous with the proliferation of DERs and storage systems. With all the different types of microgrids possible, blockchain has the potential of becoming the backbone.
What are the drivers for local energy marketplaces and microgrids?
What are the challenges?
What do local energy marketplaces offer?
What are the uses cases?
Examples of local energy marketplaces in development.

12:40 Lunch
14:00 Use case: Carbon Credits and Blockchain
Blockchain allows for a transparent database between users in the network. In this project, blockchain is used for compiling greenhouse gas inventories and the origination of carbon credits.
What are the benefits of blockchain over traditional databases?
Is this model replicable in other parts of the world?
Streamlining data verification and the certification process.

One of the most exciting features of blockchain is the ability to track the provenance of energy sources. How does a blockchain-driven RECs marketplace look like?
Opening the doors to all types of consumers. Are there any geographical limitations?
How does blockchain compare with current practices?
Can blockchain accelerate sustainability targets through a marketplace?
SUJIT MATHEW
DEPUTY DIRECTOR /// SP GROUP
