Creating a 100% Renewable Future with Blockchain & Flexibility

The global energy system is changing rapidly. Renewables are in. Polluting fossil fuel generation is on the way out. Initially this change was driven by decarbonisation targets due to climate change, but now it just makes sense. Solar and wind energy are now the cheapest way to generate power, and costs are still falling. But there are limits to how much renewable generation the grid can take – renewable intermittency and the complex power flows of distributed generation are hugely challenging for grids to cope with. Enter energy storage, and blockchain. By smoothing the intermittency of renewables through energy storage,...

The Invisible Man

In 2012, Toufic “Tey” Al Rjula discovered that he is, in fact, an “invisible man”. Tey was born in Kuwait, during the gulf war, when the birth registries were destroyed en masse. As such, he does not have a birth certificate, and even if copies were to exist, neither he, nor the issuing authority could possibly verify it. After spending two years moving between five different refugee camps in The Netherlands, his experiences with a failing, paper-based identification system motivated him to start Tykn. Since then, Tykn has grown to help NGOs and governments help people better with an improved,...

Lack of Transparency in Crypto: The Irony

The exact content will vary slightly based on the most current Ethereum data, but the goal is to prove that cryptoassets’ claims of ultimate transparency are opaque. We should all understand that blockchain’s data being open and easily accessible is a self-regulation tool for our space. We’ll explore the data to show what’s going on behind some of the curtains, and discuss how to leverage that information to improve the industry.

Monetizing Sunshine

Combining blockchain and solar energy creates a powerful nexus, which can redefine the deeply-entrenched, dysfunctional, centralized global energy and financial systems that increasingly strain our societies and environment.

Bringing the Next Billion Consumers to the Decentralized Economy

The next billion consumers are your friends and family—those who have heard you go on and on about crypto, but have yet to take action because they find it confusing and intimidating. How do we overcome these hurdles and accelerate mainstream adoption of cryptocurrency? Micah Winkelspecht shares his experiences and how he and his team at Gem are tackling this challenge.

BLOCKCHAIN & THE ENERGY TRANSITION: COOPERATION AS A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

As millions of solar panels, batteries, electric vehicles and smart technologies are adopted, the energy industry is on the brink of a transformation akin to that of the media industry: from a broadcast system to an interactive, engagement model. However the energy industry has struggled to develop the shared communication platforms and markets to engage these new assets until now. Jo-Jo explores how blockchain technology can end this stale mate, and bring about cheaper, greener and more resilient electricity systems world wide.
