Blockchain is an emerging disruptive technology that could reshape tomorrow's power markets. We held a webinar recently in Beijing to explore its relationship with China's electricity sector reforms. In this webinar we discussed - What is blockchain and how does it work? - Bitcoin mining and power consumption trends - How can blockchain technology facilitate power sector reforms in China? You can find the slides for the webinar in the download section. And also you can find the recording of the webinar in the following link http://go.woodmac.com/e/131501/s-bn6wn/x6ht8/362433533 We encourage you to explore our Grid Edge Service, which covers energy blockchains and other deep-dive knowledge around the impact of decentralisation and distributed energy. For more details in China's power market reforms, we also recommend you go through our China Gas & Power Service.
