As online marketplaces continue to replace traditional malls, it is time to bring the clean energy marketplace into the 21st century. Amazon, Google, Apple have all created their own marketplaces. Amazon started by changing the way books are sold, and now just about everything is sold on their website. Google generates revenue through Android apps and services, and with iTunes Apple changed the way we purchase music. Now, the clean energy industry is in need of a virtual marketplace that will enable small scale energy producers and consumers to make peer-to-peer transactions.
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. Joined by leading experts in renewable energy markets, he will explain the P2PConnect platform as reference architecture for constructing a next-gen clean energy marketplace. Sign up today and stay tuned for the announcement of panelists!
