New book chapter

Blockchain2As the most important energy market, the electricity market is undergoing a radical transformation that cannot be described by the term decentralization alone. Rather, this transformation is characterized by a diverse interplay of existing and new technologies and actors. Blockchain technology has the potential to intensify the dynamics of this transformation. The "Blockchain" publication in the Springer series Edition HMD provides the basics of blockchain technology, focuses on smart contracts and describes important application scenarios, first case studies and legal aspects. The iimt researchers Dr. Bernd Teufel, Dr. Anton Stentic and Tim Niemer as well as Kristina Hojckova from Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, have made a significant contribution to this with their paper „Transformation oder Disruption im Energiemarkt?“.
