Call for Expression of Interest: Blockchain Energy Trading

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.
