Slides for Webinar: Bockchain in Smart Grid presented by Claudio Lima
17 May 2018
IEEE Smart Grid Webinar Series
Blockchain is considered to be a foundational technology that will create a new
decentralized Internet layer. Most of today's Blockchain development has been
focused on Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency. However, the vertical markets, particularly
the Energy sector, will benefit from the adoption of Blockchain as a potential
disruptive technology that complements the insertion of Internet of Things (ioT) that
improves grid device-system management, cybersecurity, and also enabling a new
layer of energy trading.
This webinar introduces a unique perspective of Blockchain applied to Smart Grid. It
describes the basic principles of Blockchain, how it works, the key underlying
technologies, the challenges and applications. It focuses on the enterprise energy
segment, and the key elements and protocols.
It will introduce the Blockchain Energy Reference Framework that is being created
for the IEEE standards, addressing the Blockchain application, process, data and
network layers. Finally, it will present some specific Smart Grid Blockchain use cases,
including IoT Energy Trading and Transactive Energy.
