EMART Energy 2016 to host the first European Energy Trade over the Blockchain.

We are proud to announce the first European energy trades over the blockchain is taking place during EMART Energy 2016.  The trades will be done by Yuso and Priogen Trading – a unique moment featuring one of the new technologies arising from innovation in trading.

The blockchain technology is an innovative way to perform transactions peer-to-peer. Both traders used the Enerchain trading tool, developed by PONTON.

Enerchain allows to anonymously send orders though a trading screen. Counterparties use Enerchain to click on this order on screen to conclude a transaction – all done “peer-to-peer” without a marketplace operated by a third party. The tool supports energy products like day-ahead, monthly, quarterly and yearly baseload for power and gas. As a result, an EFET trade confirmation is created that can be uploaded to the EFETnet eCM confirmation matching service.

Please join us on November 4 in Amsterdam to be part of this unique moment in the history of energy trading.

Bart Pycke from Yuso says:

“Yuso is excited to conclude the first European energy trade over the blockchain.  We believe the blockchain technology holds great promise to improve the functioning of the  short-term power markets. Our trade on the Enerchain platform demonstrates how the technology can be used today and we look forward to work with interested industry peers to further validate the use of this technology in our industry.”

Bart de Brouwer of Priogen:

“Priogen is enthusiastic to facilitate the first European blockchain trade. We believe the blockchain technology can be a massive accelerator of the energy transition. The technology lowers the entry barriers, opening up electricity marketplaces to more participants and their potential energy flexibility.”


“We are very proud EMART Energy 2016 will be the platform to host this innovative technology. A clear sign the market is ready to adapt new technologies in preparation for the energy transition the market is facing, a new kind of thinking will be required from the market".


“Blockchain technology is a new way to create disruptive software applications and business models. After having experienced heavy marketing buzz from the FinTech and energy sectors, PONTON decided to develop an own tool in Summer 2016 that practically shows the power of the blockchain by creating a marketplace that does not require a physically centralised platform. Enerchain demonstrates what can be expected for the future in related areas of energy trading: P2P wholesale trading, C2C trading in the microgrid, synchronising grid management processes between TSOs and DSOs are only first cases for us".

2 Brooklyn Neighbors Just Traded Solar Energy via Ethereum

Microgrid wants to let neighbors sell excess solar energy over a distributed ledger-based system, and two Brooklyn neighbors completed their very first transaction on the TransActive Grid On April 11, 2016. When dealing with solar energy, there is usually an excess of power than can be sold back to the electricity provider. But some people would much rather help out others with their excess solar energy, and it would make sense that a marketplace was created to facilitate these types of exchanges. That is exactly what Consensys and Lo3 Energy did with the TransActive Grid.

Siemens Teams Up with LO3 Energy on Blockchain Microgrid

Siemens and New York-based startup LO3 Energy have announced that they are partnering up to collaborate in the field of innovative microgrids through the blockchain, according to a joint press release. The microgrid, which is being planned for Brookyln and was initially started as a pilot project of LO3 Energy, is now being developed further with the aid of Siemens Digital Grid in the U.S. For the first time, a microgrid control solution from Siemens is being combined with the peer-to-peer trading platform from LO3 Energy called the TransActive Grid. The combination of a microgrid....

ASICRising new Chip Halves Bitcoin Mining Energy

ASICRising, a German start-up is trying to find investors to produce a new high-performance microchip that it says would make bitcoin mining much cheaper and energy efficient. The process of mining is becoming increasingly expensive. While mining requires enormous amounts of energy to feed the computing power and cooling systems needed to get the hashing done, ASICRising happily says it has found a solution to this problem: an energy-efficient, low-voltage chip that together with specific software will reduce by more than half the energy needed to mine bitcoin.

Australia’s Blockchain Solar Power-Trading Suburbs Take Shape

A suburb in Fremantle, Western Australia will see its apartment owners to be among the first in the country to trade solar power over a blockchain. Solar-powered one-bedroom apartments developed by Landcorp, the development arm of the government of Western Australia are reportedly expected to be snapped up by predominantly young dwellers. These apartment-owners will soon be able to trade their any surplus solar energy over a blockchain developed by Power Ledger, a Perth startup that aims to enable owners of solar panels to sell excess energy. This beats the conventional model of selling....

Blockchain-based Ledger By UK Energy Suppliers Could Prevent Late Fees for Customers

Some services in life are already automated, but there are still a ton of improvements to be made. Energy suppliers in the UK, for example, will now automatically switch customers to more expensive plans. The era of “fixed” fuel rates is coming to an end, which will affect tens of thousands of UK households over the next few weeks. However, if the customer fails to switch over themselves, they will pay an additional £186 fee. Instead of focusing on the systems that really need to be automated, energy suppliers in the UK are taking the wrong approach, with the sole goal of lining up their....
