09:00 - 09:30 Data security in the light of the RODO Act in the context of blockchain transactions and Data processing in blockchain transactions in the energy sector
During their speech, representatives of the Ministry of Digitalization will present facts and myths about the relationship between RODO egulations and the possibility of using Blockchain technology. In the second part of the presentation, the works of the Distributed Ledger Technology team at Ministry of Digitalization will be presented. The work group of the distributed register and blockchain is focusing on providing conditions for the development of blockchain applications in various sectors of the economy and in the public sector and enabling the implementation of blockchain projects in Poland.

Dr Maciej Kawecki, Director Of The Department of Data Management, Ministry of Digital Affairs, Poland and Piotr Rutkowski, Leader of Blockchain Division
09:30 - 10:00 The spectrum of Blockchain solutions for Energy
Data recording in a special, sequential way and the distribution of these data between the so-called nodes, electrifies the entire energy world in the world. This is because it is possible to settle energy between parties quickly and safely. In Poland, we can already observe the use of these mechanisms inside energy clusters or in the settlement of charging stations for electric vehicles.

10:00 - 10:30 EV Charging and Blockchain: Practical issues, case studies and learnings.
The Electric vehicle charging experience is crucial for making the transition to using an Electric Vehicle possible for everyone. Over the last two years the Share&Charge team conducted several pilots to examine the “game changer potential” of blockchain technology for EV charging. Christopher will talk about practical issues, case studies and learnings from these trials and how the technology can be applied to improve the EV driver’s experience with EV charging.

10:30 - 11:00 Columbus Air - how to connect prosumers, chargers for electric cars, and blockchain into one business for everyone.
The future law based on the EU RED II Directive will open up new possibilities for transparent energy transfer, eg between the owner of a solar installation, a charger operator for electric cars, or simply between neighbors, one of which has photovoltaics. Columbus Air is a Columbus Energy project based on blockchain technology that will enable management of this transfer. The implementation of the concept of this project should create new income opportunities for thousands of Columbus Energy prosumers.

12:00 - 12:30 Trianel & IOTA P2P Energy Open Innovation Initiative
Initiated by the IOTA Foundation and Trianel in mid 2018 our Open Innovation Initiative quickly attracted a number of major players in the european energy market. Together they explore how IOTA could be applied in the context of Peer to Peer (P2P) energy markets. In a collaborative approach they are currently developing a first Proof-of-Concept of a P2P market in the context of semi-independent microgrids on a testbed in Norway.

13:00 - 13:30 Project Gridnet: Blockchain and IoT in decentralized energy systems: application in smart meters, distributed generation, and intelligent network
During the lecture audience will gain essential knowledge of the underlying blockchain technology. Many potential benefits as well as shortcomings will be described; we will focus on the applicability to cyber physical systems. Questions on any level, from design rationale to implementation / cryptographic details are welcome.

Rafał Skowroński, Head of the Project, Gridnet, Poland
13:30 - 14:30 Panel discussion: prospects for a broad application of Blockchain technology in the energy industry
  • Which applications are most likely for wider implementations?
  • Is Blockchain a competition for traditional players in the market, or an ally?
  • How will the energy market change as a consequence of Blockchain technologies?
