There is now access to multiple energy sources and an increased need for coordination of production and consumption in modern energy systems with digitization in many workflows and processes. As consumers turn to producing consumers (prosumers), there are significant challenges for phase and voltage keeping avoiding affecting the central grid in a negative way. Energy management in general and coordination of demand is challenging since individual consumers do not have any agreed standards for collaboration. Prosumers has a new ability to contribute energy back to the grid and there is a need for fast and efficient settlement which can also encourage contribution and reduce peak load. Production and transport elements must have real-time monitoring to ensure safe and timely control and management. The energy system must be built robust and secure to safeguard consumers and ensure business continuity also in situations of energy system component failure, cyber-attacks or natural disasters. These situations have very different requirements for preventive measures but share the need for a coordinated response from the grid operator in real-time. A key issue in all situations is reliable and real-time communication throughout the Smart Energy Sharing Network. Blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies (DLTs), through recent development, have not only enabled simple transactions, but also complex computation on a network where parties are geographically distant or have no particular trust in each other to interact and exchange value and information on a fully distributed basis with fewer to non-existent central intermediaries. Many popular applications are cloud related. These advances are now not just limited to the financial sector, but also new internet applications can harness these building blocks to empower users to take control of their online footprint, such as in healthcare, social media and other digital services. We are building an open source hub for a secure and source-controlled blockchain ecosystem, as the gathering place for academic researchers, practitioners and business innovators alike, where they may meet and work together online to embrace, promote and enhance blockchain technologies and their applications.
