Webinar - The added value of blockchain in energy retailing


29 Nov. 2018 by

Towards the end of 2017, blockchain seemed to be universally hailed as the solution for nearly every problem the energy industry ever faced.


 

By 2018, the industry was forced to face reality and blockchain technology had to grow up fast. It led to quite some disillusionment; markets crashed, a shake-out of startups occurred and expectations got depressed.  

Alan Tilley, CTO and co-founder of Drift, was joined by Thomas Boersma, Project Manager at Solarplaza, to take a deep dive to explore the added value of blockchain in energy retailing. 

Topics discussed in this webinar:

  • How is the American retail energy sector different from the European sector?
  • How Drift is using blockchain to develop new customer products
  • Drift launch of first-of-its-kind tRECs (time-based renewable environmental attributes)
