The 2018 Global Power & Energy Blockchain Conference is the world’s first event focused on the use of Blockchain technology in the Power & Energy Industry. Blockchain technology is disrupting many industries and the Power & Energy industry will need to adapt to embrace this transformative change. The conference will assist utilities, policy makers, regulators, Smart Cities, and service providers to learn about Blockchain and its applications in the Power & Energy industry. The Conference will provide an introduction, application and future of the use of Blockchain in our industry. Blockchain capabilities, including cryptocurrency, smart contracts, distributed databases, and public ledgers will be discussed based upon their application to our industry. The first Blockchain, theorized by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008, was applied during the financial downturn as an alternative to traditional financial institutions. Bitcoin, the key component of the digital currency, was just the tip of the iceberg. The technology that drives bitcoin is a secure public distributed ledger that can be applied to almost all aspects of digital transformation while removing slow and outdated workflows. Using a peer-to-peer network and a distributed time-stamping server, a Blockchain database can be managed autonomously without any intermediary.
