Traceability and certification of renewable energy

Challenge: Ensuring the traceability of renewable energy sources and certifying their origin and use.

Blockchain solution: Recording renewable energy production on a blockchain, offering transparent and tamper-proof traceability. This can facilitate the certification of green energy and boost consumer and investor confidence.

Decentralised energy exchange system

Challenge: Create an efficient and fair energy exchange system that can manage small-scale decentralised energy production (e.g. domestic solar panels).

Blockchain solution: blockchain-based peer-to-peer (P2P) energy exchange platforms that allow users to sell their surplus renewable energy directly to other consumers, optimising energy distribution and reducing dependence on traditional networks.

Financing renewable energy projects

Challenge: Mobilising capital to finance renewable energy projects, particularly small projects that may have difficulty accessing traditional financing.

Blockchain solution: Using tokenisation to facilitate the participatory financing of renewable energy projects. The creation of tokens representing a share in a renewable energy project can lower barriers to entry for investors and increase market liquidity.

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions

Challenge: Monitoring and verifying the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the context of international commitments and carbon markets.

Blockchain solution: Using blockchain to create a transparent and unalterable register of emissions and carbon credits, making it easier to track emissions reductions and combat double-counting and fraud.

Optimising grid management

Challenge: Efficiently manage energy grids to integrate intermittent and distributed renewable energy sources.

Blockchain solution: blockchain-based smart grids can automate the balancing of energy supply and demand through smart contracts, improving grid efficiency and stability of energy supply.
