Chain of Things Solar Case Study: Blockchain+IoT Security

Published: 06/07/2016, Last Updated: 06/07/2016

      With partners ElectriCChain, SolarCoin, Solcrypto, Bitseed, IOTA, and RWE, the first Chain of Things Case Study Event focused on the secure logging of solar energy production data to a distributed blockchain ledger. Through multiple case studies, Chain of Things will develop a clearer picture of what an optimal IoT+blockchain stack should include and will determine if blockchain technology is an improvement over legacy IoT security solutions.

Over 80 professionals from a wide range of industries attended the event and the subject was very well received even considering it's highly nascent subject matter.

The winners of the Intel Code for Good Prize presented a model for maximization of solar revenue in emerging markets through the demonstration of energy provenance, helping to verify renewable energy value for a variety of potential investment groups.
