The Journal of Energy Markets Special Issue on Blockchain Enabled Energy Markets
Guest co-edited by Jesus Nieto Martin, London Business School, and Sarah Hambridge, Energy Web Foundation 

Energy businesses, governments and regulators are trying to position themselves as consumer-centric in a world where the global technology evolution is shifting towards integrating Distributed Energy Resources (DER). The initiated evolution in the energy sector will change how energy is transacted. Blockchain technology has the potential to reduce transaction costs in the energy sector, enable active participation of a larger number of market participants (consumers, devices and algorithms) and, as a consequence, accelerate the transition towards a cleaner, more resilient and cost effective system.

In collaboration with the Energy Web Foundation, the Journal of Energy Markets will publish a special issue on Blockchain Enabled Energy Markets. All papers will be peer-reviewed, aiming at the highest academic standards for innovative research on this topic. The Journal therefore invites submissions on the following subjects:

  • Blockchain and Decentralized Energy Market Design and Implementation, including
  • Blockchain and Decentralized Grid Operations, including
  • Core Blockchain Technology Development & Energy

Journal of Financial Market Infrastructures Special Issue, Financial Market Infrastructure Conference II: New Thinking in a New Era, 2017

Since 2009, unprecedented global reform has transformed the legal and regulatory landscape for financial market infrastructures (FMIs), pushing the financial services industry into the spotlight. At the same time, new technologies, new techniques for data analysis and behavioral changes are having an impact on the nature and evolution of FMI functions.

Against this backdrop, in June 2017, the Financial Market Infrastructure Conference II: New Thinking in a New Era (FMIC 2) brought senior policy makers, practitioners and academics from around the world to Amsterdam to evaluate the regulatory landscape, share original research and stimulate interdisciplinary ways of thinking about this new era for FMIs.

The program was developed around four themes: real-time gross settlement (RTGS) systems and, in particular, how new tech- niques for analyzing the large data sets available to payments researchers can be applied to support policy-oriented research in this field; the application of distributed ledger technology in payment, clearing and settlement; central counterparties (CCPs) and systemic risk; and the challenges and practice of CCP recovery and resolution. This special issue of JFMI brings together a number of papers accepted for inclusion in the FMIC 2 program and reproduces two of the conference’s three keynote speeches.
