More than 500 experts from EventHorizon 2017 invited to participate in survey by ESMT Berlin and Grid Singularity
According to a survey by ESMT Berlin and the startup Grid Singularity, blockchain in the energy sector will continue to gain in importance. More than 500 participants of the EventHorizon 2017, a global conference on blockchain in the energy market, were asked to participate in the survey. Blockchain uses a continuously expandable list of records associated with transactions using cryptographic techniques.
About 80 percent of the participants expect blockchain-based business models to be realized over the next one to three years. They assume that process costs could be reduced between 20 and 60 percent. More than half can also imagine reduced network costs through blockchain. The share of peer-to-peer trading is expected to be less than 20 percent. The role of the regulator is seen as a certifier of smart contracts.
"The survey shows that blockchain holds a lot of potential and can make a significant contribution to the digitization and decentralization of the energy market," commented Christoph Burger, Senior Associate Dean of Executive Education at ESMT. "The next few years will show whether the potential is under- or over-estimated, and to what extent additional regulation is necessary or avoidable."
EventHorizon 2017 was initiated by the blockchain Startup Grid Singularity in Vienna earlier this year. The summit brought together more than 500 participants from 36 countries, including policy makers and business leaders, as well as representatives of startups and established market leaders. Together, participants discussed how blockchain and other decentralized transaction technologies can influence the organization of our energy system.

Physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (run jointly by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics) have developed an attosecond electron microscope that allows them to visualize the dispersion of light in time and space, and observe the motions of electrons in atoms.
The most basic of all physical interactions in nature is that between light and matter. This interaction takes place in attosecond times (i.e. billionths of a...
Transistors based on carbon nanostructures: what sounds like a futuristic dream could be reality in just a few years' time. An international research team working with Empa has now succeeded in producing nanotransistors from graphene ribbons that are only a few atoms wide, as reported in the current issue of the trade journal "Nature Communications."
Graphene ribbons that are only a few atoms wide, so-called graphene nanoribbons, have special electrical properties that make them promising candidates for the...
In a recent study, published in Nature, ICFO researchers Nicolas Maring, Pau Farrera, Dr. Kutlu Kutluer, Dr. Margherita Mazzera, and Dr. Georg Heinze led by ICREA Prof. Hugues de Riedmatten, have achieved an elementary "hybrid" quantum network link and demonstrated for the first time photonic quantum communication between two very distinct quantum nodes placed in different laboratories, using a single photon as information carrier.
Today, quantum information networks are ramping up to become a disruptive technology that will provide radically new capabilities for information processing...
