Perth blockchain tech for energy revolution

A move towards usage of blockchains, the engine behind bitcoins, in the energy sector could have benefits for poles and wires operators as the industry faces increasing disruption, according to a proponent.

Power Ledger chairman and 40u40 winner Jemma Green said the Perth based start up will be using blockchains to track point to point movement of electricity, with a trial soon to get under way at a National Lifestyle Village in Busselton.

It will make it easier for owners of distributed generators, such as rooftop solar power, to work out exactly where their electricity is being supplied when using multiple counterparties.
