After the Bitcoin revolution Satoshi Nakamoto started, the blockchain tech is evolving to new fields. Entire niches of the economy can be revolutionized because of the new p2p distributed ledger technologies. The energy sector will be in the near future one of the fields where blockchain applications can be disruptive.

As always we have more questions than answers on this matter. We want to ask our speakers and debate about questions like:

What is wrong with the current energy system? How can blockchain offer a solution? What pitfalls should we avoid? What are the key factors that need to be managed in the decentralized energy grids?

Mihail Mihaylov is a post-doctoral researcher in the AI lab of Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium. He is the founder of the NRGcoin concept, a decentralized mechanism for rewarding renewable energy, based on blockchain technology. Mihail is the co-founder of the Barcelona Bitcoin Community.

Simone Accornero: Research Energy Engineer formed at KU Leuven, UPC Barcelona, UNIBO and UPV Valencia, based in Barcelona and currently working at CITCEA. Driven by a strong passion for renewable energies, smart grids, sharing economy, blockchain and sustainable cities. Striving to contribute to the transition towards a decentralized autonomous electricity grid to achieve a more sustainable future.

Alex Sicart is the co-founder & CTO at Sharge. Sharge is a platform that allows you share your charging station to electric car users, using blockchain technology. Forbes 30 under 30 in Tech, 2017 (Alex awarded by Forbes as one of most promising young-game changers)

This event is presented by Carlos Barbero, founder of BTC-Guardian and Coloured Seeds Coworking Space. Member of the Barcelona Bitcoin Community
