Platone will be coordinated by RWTH Aachen University in Germany and Engineering is leading the design and development of a technological solution based on Blockchain, which can optimise the energy network by adapting it to the ever-increasing penetration of energy from renewable sources and from electric heating, cooling and mobility systems. Engineering has a relevant role in the creation of the Blockchain based platform, since we will elaborate the general requirements and the architecture design, define the platform specifications, work on scalability and on the development of innovative services, such as the Peer to Peer energy exchange between users. In fact, thanks to the Blockchain, the traditional access barriers can be overcome and all the players in the network will rely on certified measures.
In full compliance with the regulatory framework: a stratified set of platforms will meet the needs of system operators, aggregators and users.
The project has received co-funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 program - Contract No. 864300
