Course Title: S032 Blockchain and its Application in Energy Internet
Duration: 2020.7.9-2020.7.31( 3 weeks)
Blockchain is a decentralized ledger that can enable trustworthy systems at large scales. A copy of the ledger is stored by each participating party and synchronized using a consensus algorithm, making the ledger transparent and robust against cyberattacks. While these technologies have already significantly impacted the financial industry (e.g., Bitcoin), they also have many applications to the power and energy society.
Applications of blockchain in the energy sector include automatic energy transactions, power system asset ownership tracking, etc. Several demonstrations have been deployed around the world, such as the peer-to-peer energy transaction project deployed in Brooklyn, NY, by LO3Energy, the PowerLedger project backed by the Australian government, and Enerchain joined by a large number of European utilities. Hopefully it will revolutionize the way that energy transactions and power system asset tracking is performed, bring opportunities for numerous small-scale players.
This course aims to help students learn the basic knowledge of blockchain, explore some typical applications of blockchain technology in the energy sector, build blockchain-enabled energy trading simulation platforms; visit some related pilot projects in Shanghai, and lay the foundation for students to explore further applications. The summer course will provide a good opportunity to network with people working in the field, meet prominent researchers, share best practices, and to establish contacts through social interactions that may lead to research collaborations in the future.
