We’re delighted to share that The Economist just published a very positive feature story on how the Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT), blockchain in particular, have the potential to foster transition into renewables.

Up until now, the energy industry has remained rather untouched by the digital disruption that has transformed many other industries. From finance and manufacturing to medicine and education.

WePower aims to change the way renewable-electricity projects are paid for. The government-guaranteed prices that have propelled growth in wind and solar energy around the world are being cut back, says Nick Martyniuk, WePower’s founder. So his firm wants to help developers of renewables raise money by selling the rights to the electricity their plants will produce once built. Customers will buy a smart contract now, running on Ethereum’s blockchain, that will provide them with power later.

We also kept a close eye on the market and shared with you some of the most intriguing updates and exclusive interviews from the Renewable Energy as well as the weather data industry. …
