We are looking at trends in tech disruption by sector and exploring potential use cases for blockchain in energy - focusing on related legal and regulatory issues. 

We are considering 4 key blockchain innovations for energy: (1) producing a smart and decentralised energy generation and distribution infrastructure; (2) automating transactions using digital and smart contracts; (3) document ownership to facilitate asset management and certification of renewable energy, and (4) blockchain as a platform for commodities supply chain and trade finance. 

Perceived benefits of using blockchain technology in these contexts include significantly reducing costs associated with facilitating transactions, keeping records and regulatory compliance.
