Boston, MA, May 23, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Power2Peer will host an energy blockchain forum on Wednesday May 29, 2019 from 6-8 PM at UMass Boston's Venture Development Center at 100 Morrissey Blvd, Boston, MA 02125.
Innovations are always at the heart of disruptive businesses. Since the time of Thomas Edison and Nicola Tesla the electricity grid has changed little. High-tension wires crossing state lines transmit electrical energy from the large gas-fired power plants that have supplied electricity to Americans for over 200 years.
Power2Peer founder and chief evangelist Dr. Nish Sonwalkar believes it is time to innovate our conventional grids by creating a marketplace for renewable energy sources.
"Solar, wind, geo-thermal, ocean thermal, fuel cell, hydrogen and even tidal energy can be brought into the fold for a new economy of distributed power systems," Sonwalkar said in a release detailing the event, which can be found on Power2Peer's website.
Dr. Sonwalkar has conducted extensive research and development in the area of solar microgrids, blockchain platforms, software defined network controllers, IoT and big-data analytics. Joined at the Venture Development Center by leading experts in renewable energy markets, he will explain the P2PConnect platform as reference architecture for constructing a next-gen clean energy marketplace.
Anyone interested in attending is encouraged to register for free on Eventbrite.
