How will Blockchain Benefit the Energy Industry
TLDR
This work provides a comprehensive overview of fundamental principles that underpin blockchain technologies, such as system architectures and distributed consensus algorithms, that can enable novel business solutions, especially when combined with smart contracts.
A Systematic Analysis of Real-World Energy Blockchain Initiatives
TLDR
The results presented from the systematic analysis highlight that real-world energy blockchains are growing exponentially year-on-year, producing relatively low failure/drop-off rates, and demonstrating information sharing protocols that produce content with insufficient technical and theoretical depth.
A comprehensive review of energy blockchain: Application scenarios and development trends
TLDR
The results show that energy blockchain is an effective innovation technology to accelerate the transformation of global energy structure and multinational cooperation and government‐leading are the basis of large‐scale deployment of energy blockchain.
Blockchain in Energy Efficiency: Potential Applications and Benefits
TLDR
It is presented how the key issues around trading energy efficiency savings can be solved through the application of a blockchain-based smart contract system and an implementation of a smart contract for trading of energy-saving certificates achieved via execution of smart contract transactions on the Ethereum blockchain.
A Blockchain Approach to Social Responsibility
TLDR
This study touches on the benefits available for companies that are willing to engage in socially responsible causes through blockchain and states in what ways a permissioned blockchain can bring together businesses on common ground to increase their reach and provide better customer service.
