Explore the Potential of Blockchain Technology in the Energy Industry, 2019 Report – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Blockchain Technology in the Energy Industry” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The architecture of the global energy market is changing. The market model is transforming from highly centralized power distribution into decentralized, distributed energy management enabled by intelligent software and new approaches to data management. Three trends – digitalization, decentralization, and decarbonization – are steering the transformation.

All these changes lead to the central question: how will the electricity services that are today primarily provided in a centralized, top-down manner be provided in the future?

The rising demand for faster and more secure transactions along with full transparency has made blockchain one of the fastest-growing technology markets in the world. Blockchain technology enables transparent, tamper-proof, and secure systems for different business solutions through smart contracts.

Over the past few years, industry stakeholders, utilities, energy service companies, and information and communication technology companies in the energy market have taken great interest in blockchain technologies and are investing heavily in research and development related to verifying and recording finance transactions. Blockchains are primarily designed to facilitate distributed transactions by removing the central point of authority.

The potential of blockchain technology in the energy industry has just started to be realized, evident by the increasing number of blockchain start-ups involved in R&D and pilot projects. Blockchain technology here remains in its infancy but is slowly growing. Beyond 2020, the energy market is expected to witness more blockchain projects coming online.
