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
