We look forward to working with respected industry partners to accelerate the deployment of blockchain to help our consumers save energy and cost, and enhance their quality of life,” May Liew, Director of Strategic Development, SP Group, stated.
Blockchain technology plays a key role in energy sector. It not only lowers transaction costs by reducing the costs of utility bills, but also allows energy devices like electric vehicles, batteries and solar photovoltaic (PV) to transact with each other. This is done by supporting utilities and grid operators to integrate more renewable sources at lower cost.
The EWF is a partnership between Rocky Mountain Institute and Grid Singularity and aims to foster the commercial deployment of blockchain technology in the energy sector. Earlier this month, few energy firms collaborated to support EWF that helped it to secure the first round of funding amounting to $2.5 million.
