Enabling automated transparency for the market participation of ESCOs with Blockchain

Nieto-Martin, J and Bunn, D W (2018) Enabling automated transparency for the market participation of ESCOs with Blockchain. [Conference proceeding]


This study investigates the decision problem that
Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) encounter for growing their
project portfolios whilst seeking financial investors. Global investment in energy efficiency expanded in 2016 at 9%, despite low energy prices, with most of those investments in buildings, which account for one-third of total energy demand. Nevertheless new ways for raising equity and debt, are needed to enable developers to access into larger financing pools, especially for funding retrofitting assets and small-scale energy efficiency projects. We provide an analysis of portfolio generation using digital data system architectures implemented with Blockchain technology as transaction mechanism.
