Overview

Tired of the hyped-up presentations on blockchain? Come to the place where real projects and impacts (or lack thereof) are discussed in an intimate and invite-only setting. Following the success of our November 2017 Summit, in which we gathered 80 top stakeholders and innovators at the intersection of blockchain and energy, we are repeating the experience one year on to assess the progress of this innovation theme.

Having covered early use cases extensively last year, we will focus the 2018 Executive Summit on how fast those use cases are scaling. By analyzing challenges around technical scale, business models, integration into energy markets or regulation, we will aim to uncover the projects and players best positioned to lead the field and disrupt our industries. Like last year, you can expect to meet the top minds of the space – from both the blockchain and energy worlds.

For the past 3 years, through its At the Cutting-Edge practice, Cleantech Group has been covering the intersection of emerging technologies – like blockchain, AI, augmented reality, gene editing and more – with energy and industry. Our distinctive approach around these themes, and blockchain in particular, is to track the identity and progress of the innovative players aiming to create and capture value, and to assess how they progress year on year. For our latest thinking on the subject, see our blog on the state of this innovation theme.

Don’t miss out. Places are limited to 100, so request an invite today!

  • Networking Break
  • Scale-up Challenge 1: Raising cash is not a business model. How will blockchain innovators convince customers and make money?

    While blockchain technology keeps progressing, real life examples of value creation and capture are rare. In this session, we will discuss how innovators are testing value propositions and evolving business models.

  • Focus on Mobility: Enabling Transportation-as-a-Service

    From carsharing without a middleman to insurance records and car-to-car transactions, potential applications of blockchain technology in the mobility space are numerous. With top innovators in the space, we will discuss the most promising of them, and how they fit into the fast-changing mobility market.

  • Networking Lunch
  • Scale-up Challenge 2: Partnerships, consortia and ICOs in a volatile ecosystem

    Large corporates were early in jumping on the blockchain bandwagon. But with an early technology, high valuations and expectations, some are likely to get burned. How are first-movers navigating the minefield?

  • Scale-up Challenge 3: Governance, regulation & integrating blockchain in energy markets

    The shared nature of distributed ledgers make it crucial to have clear rules of engagement. As this has been a major hurdle to scale, let’s discuss how consortia and market leaders are approaching governance and regulation.

  • Networking Break
  • Focus on Transactive Energy: What progress one year on?

    After transactive energy made the headlines in 2016 and 2017, let’s ask the leaders in the space how things are progressing on the grounds, and reflect on customer adoption, business models and scaling-up efforts.
