Sustainability Drinks – Blockchain in the Energy Transition ft. dena (German Energy Agency)

February 20, 2017 @ 7:30 PM - 11:00 PM


Energy plays a crucial role in the development of a sustainable climate change path. One of the potentials for innovation in the energy sector is the Blockchain development.

ESMT Berlin and dena conducted a survey among German energy executives and decision-makers in the energy industry on the future role of blockchain in the energy sector. The survey compiles their opinions, current and planned actions, and visions. Respondents urge decision-makers to speed up the process of putting blockchain at the top of their agendas and express concerns that Germany and the European Union might be lagging behind in global comparison. The rapid launch of prototypes should verify the functionality of the technology. At this event, the key findings will be shared with you.

This Sustainability Drinks Event is organized in cooperation with dena, the German Energy Agency.

* Doors open at 18:30
* Speakers start at 19:00
* Quickpitches at 20:30

Quickpitches of this event

Blockchain Technology in Fashion Value Chain

Last year we helped scale the worlds most powerful solutions for refugee integration to Germany. Now we want to apply this experience to tech-solutions that increase transparency in our industry. Since we consider ourselves to be a Fashion- and a Tech-Company in equal parts we want to learn if there is a special role for us in this.

Blockchain technology has the potential to be a gamechanger for sustainable fashion. That's what everybody says. But is there evidence for this assumption? It is time to help solutions grow faster than the challenges do so we want to team up with people that bring complementary skills and comparable passion to the table and have some collective impact.
