Smart grid pilot projects

Abstract

There are thousands of smart grid pilot projects all around the world, having begun largely in the early 2000s. With the introduction of blockchain, and with the grid becoming more unpredictable and decentralized, several use cases are becoming apparent for blockchain. This report points to work that has already been done on Smart Grids – particularly in the United States and Europe – as well as to several blockchain projects underway. The space is quickly becoming saturated, with over 120 blockchain companies as of mid 2018.
