Blockchain in Utilities - Thematic Research

Summary
Blockchain is a nascent industry; it is moving beyond the incubation phase, but it is still largely the domain of proof-of-concept projects and small-scale production deployments. Blockchain technology, often referred to as “distributed ledger technology” (or DLT) is a means by which the participants in a distributed network can each maintain a copy of an immutable ledger of transactions, and where transactions can be executed without the need for a single, central, coordinating authority.

Many organizations, most notably in the financial services sector, have been working on internal blockchain projects for some time now.Blockchain solutions require a network of parties to agree to use the network, agree the underlying business processes that will govern the network, and then to integrate their systems with the network.

Blockchain is not a game you can play on your own - it is a team sport.

Utilities are becoming more decentralized, as a result of a growing reliance on distributed generation, storage, and flexibility services by customers and other industry participants.The growth in electric vehicles is also posing a challenge to the centralized model of utilities, as is the rise of small local and municipal energy systems and microgrids.

Increasingly, utilities are seeing the potential of blockchain to allow coordination between these many players with conflicting interests, and facilitate the exchange of information and value between them through mechanisms like smart contracts.
