The gradually growing demand for blockchain as a technology is expected to disrupt the core of the several industries where it may be implemented. The beginning of the concept of blockchain in energy originated as a niche product on the market peripheries but has captured the attention of several industry experts and leaders in recent times. The use of blockchain technology in the energy sector allows energy companies the chance to make substantial cost-saving and process efficiencies which is a significant advantage that is expected to be derived from the implementation of blockchain in energy. However, the preliminary potential of blockchain technology in the energy industry proves its potential to be that of a robust technology in its imminent energy industry applications.
As blockchain technology is a relatively new technology that has the potential to transform the way energy industry operates while moving away from a centralized structure towards a decentralized system. Through blockchain technology, the energy industry operations are expected to be more flexible and can also efficiently contribute toward fast-tracking the speed of changes taking place in the energy industry. Keeping these developments in mind, the market for blockchain in technology is anticipated to achieve USD 5,032.6 million in terms of revenue approximately while growing with a CAGR of 74.45 percent in the forecast period. The most encouraging of the blockchain in energy’s applications presently are carried out through partnership and collaboration amid the major players such as utility providers such as RWE or technology developers such as Siemens with the blockchain technology companies. The independent power producers comprising of residential and commercial players are also contributing more with solar PV and thermal leading to development in the decentralized energy generation rate.
