Input - Saptarshi
  • Consumer disclosure in energy markets
  • Powerledger had a successful project where they used P2P energy transactions and made 50,000 transactions successfully.
    • The impact of using these as transactions are huge
    • The price of clean energy sources are dropping drastically
    • Want to use incentive from government to make people motivated to be more clean
    • Can work by a Producer/Consumer relationship between 2 peers
      • Can work where people are selling to the government
    • Similar Projects: Electron in London, WePower in Lithuania
  • Is there an opportunity to extend Blockchain to solar panels?:
    • Very relevant to Consumer Disclosure, even though it’s not ecommerce
Additional Topics
  • Pay to be able to offset carbon emissions
  • 1 CO2ken represents 1 ton of CO2
  • DAO has been implemented to bridge blockchain and the real world
    • To replace carbon certificates
  • How do you verify initial certificate:
    • There are registries that maintain a list of carbon certificates
  • Platform doesn’t make it tradeable:
    • It retires offsets in the real world and take a payment to do so
  • Vera has a whole range of methodologies on creating credits
  • How to prevent people from generating random currencies?
  • Industry level solutions to currency issues:
  • Why is blockchain required:
    • There is no need for centralization with the field of retiring certificates
  • Regeneration potential is in small details: blue carbon, sustainable farming, etc.
    • System is so focused on carbon that we forget about these co benefits
  • Grassroots Economics has created a community currency directly linked to the local currency in Kenya
    • Use DAI as collateral for local economy
    • Gives incentive to people to make changes because they can make their regenerative actions worth 4x their local currency.
Next Meeting
  • Pre-design sprint for projects and finding a platform that sees them coming together to create a common modular architecture.
