The IERC invites Expressions of Interest from Research Investigators to participate in an IERC T2 collaborative research project.
A consortium of industry stakeholders has already been formulated that seeks to collaborate with one or more RPOs to develop the appropriate infrastructure and subsequently demonstrate the applicability of using blockchain technology to facilitate peer to peer energy trading in the distributed grid. In this particular project, the IERC strongly encourages submissions from research consortia that include PIs from computer science or similar disciplines with fluency in blockchain technology and PIs from electrical engineering or similar with fluency in the mechanics of electricity markets and distributed grids. Particular objectives of the project include:
Costing of such equipment and the identification of the financial features of the probable markets that can allow the commercialisation of peer to peer energy trading through the blockchain.
The lead PI once selected will be required to work collaboratively with Co-PI’s, the industry consortium and the IERC to complete a detailed project plan and full costing to detail how it will be achieved. The combined plan will be subject to internal and external financial and technical review.
Applicants are invited to register their interest in this call or to submit a completed EOI form by emailing: email@example.com
A webinar was held on 13th June with further information on the call. The slides from this webinar can be found here.
An FAQ document will be uploaded in due course.
