  Add to Calendar 2019-09-17 9:00 2019-09-17 17:30 Europe/Paris Digital Energy Marketplaces: The role of smart contracts in the definition and coordination of investments, architectures and governance

Technological innovation has the potential to increase the efficiency of an industry, significantly transform it, or even entirely disrupt it. To transform or to disrupt, innovation needs to change the industry players and the way they interact. For example, industry change may be driven by consumers pushing the path from smart technologies, which any utility may implement itself to manage its assets, to smart transactions, where smart technologies create new coordination tools within the industry. By gathering practitioners from the industry, academics and representatives of the institutions, this workshop develops further the debate started at the Open Marketplaces & Enabling Technologies workshop that took place last March in Brussels. The various sessions of the workshop will explore how distributed ledger technologies like the block chain can effectively transform the energy industry and enable new forms of interaction among the actors of the supply chain. The possible emergence and the organisation of new platforms and contractual arrangements will be investigated. Finally, the workshop will address the governance and regulatory issues that the adoption of these new technologies raises.
