Blockchain Energy Bridge
Bringing the physical energy metering information into the digital world of blockchainThere is a clear and strong energy sector dynamic driving production from large centralized units to smaller, decentralized ones, thus opening a world of new opportunities and needs for new types of services. Blockchain technology has the potential to become the digital infrastructure that will support this fast-evolving market and will be a key enabler for new emerging use cases such as Peer-to-peer trading, crowdfunding, demand side management, traceability, … However, retrieving green energy data securely and integrating it in the blockchain continues to be a major challenge. That’s why we have designed a secure hardware blockchain device to fill the existing void and build a robust and reliable bridge between the physical world of energy production and consumption and the digital world of Blockchain
This autonomous device can be plugged on any type of meter on production and consumption sites to start instantly collecting data in real time. These data is then signed and can be registered in any blockchain for any decentralized application directly by this device.
Combining ENGIE’s expertise in energy sector with LEDGER’s security expertise in the blockchain environment, the device also ensures the data is trustworthy, thanks to an in-built anti-tampering solution and secure elements imbedded into the device, that guarantees the authenticity of data put on the blockchain and that will be used in new innovative solutions.
