How The Energy Blockchain Will Create A Distributed Grid

The blockchain could serve as the foundation of a system for connecting energy grids, delivering more efficient and environmentally sustainable energy, according to Greentechmedia.com, a news site for the global clean energy market. One company, L03 Energy, is building an “open source cryptographically secure” blockchain to manage transactions across a microgrid. Lawrence Orsini, the founder of L03 Energy, said the blockchain’s impact on energy could be much bigger than bitcoin. L03 Energy has built two nodes collecting generation and consumption data across the microgrid and sending it to....
