The Advantages and Challenges of the Blockchain for Smart Grids

  title={The Advantages and Challenges of the Blockchain for Smart Grids},
  author={Thomas C. Winter},
In our current society both the demand for electricity is increasing and the demand for electrical energy as energy carrier is increasing. Renewable sources will play an important role in future energy generation due to societal developments. These distributed energy resources introduce new challenges to our current electrical power system. One of these challenges imposed on our current electrical power system is the introduction of a new grid user, the prosumer, who consumes and produces… Expand
