Abstract

In this chapter, we provide a framework for assessing the relevance and impact of BlockChain technologies for enabling the energy transition from both the production and consumption sides of the equation. We will assess the issues and current solutions to understand how BlockChain combined with Smart Contracting could be best adapted and combined to serve energy transition objectives. The assessment is taken from both the technology and business models perspectives. Our framework is designed as a guide for the adoption and deployment of BlockChain and Smart Contract solutions in the energy sector for common and new use cases by taking the perspective of multiple stakeholders such as consumers (either private and industrial), producers, operators and investors in microgrids, DSOs and TSOs. Moreover, we will include aspects related to regulation and policies. The proposed framework and assessment methodology are the synthesis of a study realized in Switzerland where several representatives of multiple stakeholders have been consulted via interviews and a workshop held in mid-2019.
