Behold the hippest tech on Earth: Blockchain for peer-to-peer solar energy markets
By combining advancements in solar and blockchain technology LO3 Energy has taken a step to decentralize the energy market.
Most of us are aware of the environmental benefits of solar energy over fossil fuels, we’ve heard it numerous time: blah blah, cleaner air, blah blah, sustainability, and so on.
[…] People can now make choices and decisions about how they want to participate in the energy market: peer-to-peer markets, community markets, and other interesting and new business models.
Only 50 physical nodes make up the grid so it’s difficult to say when we’ll see larger scale peer-to-peer energy markets.
To achieve this, LO3 Energy uses blockchain technology, which electronic currencies such as BitCoin are based on.
