Jean-Michel Glachant guest speaker at blockchain energy summit, EventHorizon

Yesterday, 19 June 2019, FSR Energy Director, Jean-Michel Glachant was a guest speaker at EventHorizon in Berlin, the Global summit on blockchain technology in the energy sector. Professor Glachant spoke during two panel sessions and discussed possible implications for energy consumers of applying blockchain technology to energy retail markets. He argued that blockchain will pave the way for small consumers to directly engage in energy trading and will facilitate them in becoming prosumers and prosumagers.

He also took the chance to present the newly published e-book Blockchain meets Energy, a joint editorial project of the Florence School of Regulation (FSR) and the German-Mexican Energy Partnership (EP). The book is intended for the general public and non-experts and touches on the basics of blockchain and the role it can play within the energy sector (in particular in fostering decarbonisation and digitalisation of energy).

E-book Blockchain meets Energy is available for download here.


The 2-day (19-20 June 2019) event EventHorizon is the leading summit in the energy blockchain industry. It featured more than 1000 Attendees, 80 speakers and 20 startup pitches. More info about the summit here.
