The Amazon marketplace began by changing the way books are sold, and now just about everything is sold there. Google generates revenue through Android apps and services; with iTunes Apple changed the way we purchase music.
Dr. Nish Sonwalkar has conducted extensive research and development in the area of solar microgrids, blockchain platforms, software defined network controllers, IoT and big-data analytics. Combining some of the latest technology he will explain the P2PConnect platform as reference architecture for constructing a next-gen clean energy marketplace. Sign up today and join the discussion!
Brief Biography of the Presenter
Dr. Nish Sonwalkar (ScD., MIT), Founder, President and CEO, Power2Peer
An inventor and entrepreneur, Dr. Nish Sonwalkar has over 25 years of experience in the development of innovative technologies. With Power2Peer he is developing a clean energy marketplace for peer-to-peer transaction. Over the course of his career Dr. Sonwalkar has specialized in renewable energy technologies related to solar thermal applications, open cycle ocean thermal energy conversion (OC-OTEC) evaporators, and the molecular dynamics of energy materials and nano-interfaces, such as Si and copper interfaces and optical coatings. As the former Principal Research Scientist and faculty at MIT, he developed the combined molecular dynamics (MD) and laser Raman spectroscopy methodology for the design of new material interfaces. His most recent invention is a method for increasing the efficiency of solar panels by over 20%.
