• IEEE Blockchain Transactive Energy (BCTE) Position Paper

IEEE Blockchain-Enabled Transactive Energy

We have created and released a comprehensive Position Paper to serve as a catalyst for advancing the work on this BCTE initiative.

The work that is now advancing ideas from this paper falls into three distinct but coordinated workgroups, which are listed below:

• Identify current standards and gaps against these standards (or need for new ones)
• Coordinate volunteer revisions of Position Paper.
2DemonstrationJames KempfFormally establish Demonstration Development Workgroup #2
• Identify Demo Portfolio Strategy, with allocated Budget
• Issue Demo Proposal Forms (target 3 per week)
• Evaluate and Administer Selected Demo Proposals

To participate, please contact us and we will send a survey to match your interests with the initiative.

This virtual event series will be leveraging the new digital world that the COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated, to discuss Blockchain enabled solutions and their impact on the Power and Energy segments of our societies. Due to this rapidly changing global ecosystem, now is the perfect time to explore new methods of coming together and advancing these technologies as a virtually connected community.

Through podcasts, virtual keynotes and industry forums, digitally curated poster competitions, globally connected standards collaborations and publications, this series is aiming to deliver actionable discussions from all aspects of the application of Blockchain within the Power and Energy industry.
