NOTE: This webinar and others all lead up to the May 4-5, and 14, 2021 energy transition symposium. Go to https://cercsymposium.org/. to learn more about the event and to register for the symposium. 

This webinar will deal with the emergence of blockchain based Transactive Energy, and is paer of a forum hosted by the Colorado Energy Research Collaboratory (CERC) that is sponsored by several Colorado based academic and scientific institutions in conjunction with the IEEE Denver Chapter

Webinar description    Blockchain, as applied to Transactive Energy (TE), is an important technology that has the potential to change today’s utility business models towards the utility of the future.   There will be impacts to energy automation, distributed solar photovoltaic, distributed energy storage systems (DESS), smart metering, distributed energy resources (DER), etc.

This webinar will give you an opportunity to learn about current work and pilot projects being conducted by NREL, Duke Energy, and the IEEE task force on transactive energy.


Moderator:  Joe Gersch, Assistant Professor, Colorado State University


  • Tony Markel, Senior Researcher, Partnership Development, Secure Cyber-Energy Systems Group, National Renewable Energy Laboratory
