Blockchain in the Energy Transition ft. dena (German Energy Agency)
Energy plays a crucial role in the development of a sustainable climate change path. One of the potentials for innovation in the energy sector is the Blockchain development.
ESMT Berlin and dena conducted a survey among German energy executives and decision-makers in the energy industry on the future role of blockchain in the energy sector. The survey compiles their opinions, current and planned actions, and visions. Respondents urge decision-makers to speed up the process of putting blockchain at the top of their agendas and express concerns that Germany and the European Union might be lagging behind in global comparison. The rapid launch of prototypes should verify the functionality of the technology. At this event, the key findings will be shared with you.
This Sustainability Drinks Event is organized in cooperation with dena, the German Energy Agency.
