    Global Blockchain in Energy Market: Competitive Landscape

    In competitive landscape, the report covers the development strategies adopted by the companies between 2017 and 2018. The key players adopted various strategies to retain and/or expand their market share. The key strategies followed by most companies within the global blockchain in energy market were that of product launch followed by the partnerships and collaborations.

    The key players of global solar panel market are Power Ledger Pty Ltd (Australia), WePower UAB (Republic of Lithuania), LO3 Energy, Inc (U.S.), Grid + (U.S.), BTL Group Ltd. (Canada), The Sun Exchange (Pty) Ltd. (South Africa), Conjoule GmbH (Germany), Enosi Foundation (Australia), and Electron (Chaddenwych Services Limited) (U.K).

    Power Ledger is an Australia based energy trading platform developer that uses blockchain for its operations. The company is mainly focused on blockchain based decentralized energy platform for buying and selling of energy. One of the main advantages of Power Ledger’s blockchain platform is that it is an automated market trading and transparent platform for its users. Power Ledger’s operations is unique in itself as the company uses dual-token blockchain ecosystem layers namely POWRTM and Sparkz for operation.  POWRTM is the Power Ledger token that is used in the Power Ledger blockchain ecosystem for energy trading applications and creates Sparkz. Sparkz are then used in transactions for real currencies or fiat money for energy trading. Power Ledger is mainly focused on sale of renewable energy that are generated at residential, commercial and industrial developments to the existing grid network.

    WePower is a blockchain based energy trading and financing firm with specific focus in renewable energy. Renewable energy producers such as solar and wind power operators can raise their own operating capital by issuing their own energy tokens using WePower. This is different from other blockchain based operators since power producers with WePower will have their own tokens rather than a standard token issued by other blockchain providers. The main advantage of using this WePower technology is that renewable energy produced by individual producers can be traded directly with buyers by selling energy upfront at below-market rates. WePower is currently in the process of launching a pilot project in Elering, an Estonian transmission and distribution operator for its blockchain technology implementation. The primary goal of this project is to demonstrate the capacity of Ethereum blockchain technology in recording of country-level energy production and consumption data. The company believes that this will enable blockchain based power markets to venture into reality.

    LO3 Energy Inc., is a U.S. based technology provider that also offers business development consulting services. The company has its major operations on decentralized business models with specific focus to innovative technologies in sectors such as energy, cleantech and currency systems. LO3 Energy has diverse operational portfolio including operations such as the development of utility design hardware, policy advocacy, and final product design including technical standard setting. LO3 energy also benefits from its deep expertise in cryptography, cybersecurity, peer-to-peer consensus along with distributed energy computing. The company’s major strength is its unique experience of integrating blockchain technology with different energy generation techniques, such as thermal and renewable sources.

    Grid + was established by ConsenSys, a global leader in blockchain technology through its continuous research in implementing blockchain technology for the energy industry. The company is currently focusing on bringing next-generation energy efficiencies to the energy market by developing new hardware and software solutions including blockchain. Grid+ was formed with the objective of revolutionizing the way the energy market operates by functioning as a commercial electricity retailer in deregulated market. Ethereum platform is used to enable customers pay and settle payments real-time, which significantly reduces costs. Furthermore, Grid+ Ethereum based blockchain platform can instantly introduce efficiency in energy retailing and this enables renewable energy production more sustainably and efficiently. Ethereum based blockchain enables Grid+ to enable automated billing and transaction processes with payments being recorded and moved through smart contracts.

    BTL Group is a blockchain technology based in Vancouver, Canada which has its operations on developing blockchain technologies for various industries and businesses. The company is the creator of InterbitTM, a next-generation blockchain platform, which has the unique capability of joining thousands of InterbitTM blockchains that can enable enhanced security along with data integrity and privacy than other blockchain platforms. One of the most important advantages of the BTL’s InterbitTM platform is that businesses and enterprises can build their own applications focusing on trading, settlement, remittance, audit, and back-office processes. BTL Group believes that this flexibility of their blockchain platform must enable InterbitTM to become the professional-grade blockchain development tool of choice among various businesses. In Europe, the BTL Group is currently testing its InterbitTM platform with the trading arms of oil and gas supermajors along with leading energy traders including Eni Trading & Shipping, Total, Gazprom Marketing & Trading Limited and Vattenfall for delivering gas trading and settlement.

    Enosi foundation is an Australia based blockchain energy market operator with a focus on increasing the utilization of clean locally generated energy. Enosi develops blockchain based open-sourced systems that are used to sell excess energy generated from renewable energy sources, such as solar PV within communities. In addition to that, the Enosi platform creates smart contracts, which will enable rapid deployment and the use of the renewable energy. Smart contracts are generated through a mobile application, which is commonly known as a “Decentralised Application” or dApp. The app does not require a centralized server or 3rd party server as it runs on decentralized blockchain network. For higher adoption of blockchain based distributed energy applications, Enosi foundation has set up partnership programs with energy retailers, such as Solar Analytics and Energy locals, who are based in Melbourne.

    The key players adopted various strategies to retain and/or expand their market share. Out of all the key strategies adopted by the companies in the global blockchain in energy market, LO3 Energy based in U.S. had the maximum number of partnerships and collaborations with a share of 36%, during the period 2017 - 2018. Power Ledger (Australia) accounted for 18% share in partnerships and collaborations during the period. For instance, LO3 energy in partnership with Siemens established blockchain technology based microgrid pilot in Brooklyn, U.S. the project facilitates the residents with solar panel based power generation to sell their excess generated energy to their peers. This peer-to-peer power transfer takes advantage of blockchain technology to minimize the amount of energy lost through transmission.

    BTL group (Canada) has undergone the highest number of on new product development with a share of 43% each during the period 2017-2018. For instance, on April, 2019, BTL Group announced that its proprietary next-generation blockchain platform InterbitTM is made available for public testing and feedback. This will enable users to create their own multiple blockchain solutions and they can also provide their feedback. This is specifically done to address the privacy and scalability shortcomings of existing generations of blockchain platforms. In January 2018, BTL Groups European energy project entered its second phase following its initial pilot implementation phase. The project is now focused on expanding its scope to enable straight settlement processes and also bringing wider participation from the industry.
