Technology Description

Blockchain technology presents a unique opportunity to maximize the potential of distributed generation, more efficiently manage less predictable and more volatile renewable power resources and increase energy affordability. We are developing a peer-to-peer value exchange platform using blockchain technology, with the intent to enable and manage microservice transactions on the distribution grid by utilizing an approach we call “crypto-control.” The EnergyBlox project addresses important scalability and accessibility challenges of this technology, especially for incorporating temporal locational distribution grid constraints.
