German energy agency dena, study report

The use of the blockchain in individual fields of application in the field of energy can be an added value for companies from an economic, technological and regulatory point of view, even though these dimensions must always be assessed separately and weighed against one another. This is the conclusion of the dena study "Blockchain in the Integrated Energy Transition". It analyzes use cases for blockchain in the energy system, among other things with regard to technological maturity, competitive situation with other digital technologies, business and economic benefits, strategic added value and regulatory environment. From this, recommendations for action for politics, the energy industry and the blockchain scene were derived.
