Along with our normal daily coverage for clean technology news, CleanTechnica it also produces in-depth reports on various aspects of clean energy and clean transport. One of the emerging technologies we cover is not directly a clean technological innovation is blockchain, which promises to be a catalyst for innovation in the green economy in the near future. Blockchain is probably best known to the public as "having something to do with cryptocurrency and Bitcoin, right?", Which is partially correct, but the technology itself has a wide range of applications, some of which will be crucial in the fields of distributed renewable energy , network management and energy storage, and smart contracts, among others.

The full report Blockchain: an enabling innovator for clean technology, which was published in July, is a deep immersion in the blockchain and its potential, and we have published some extracts from the report in recent months. (Read the last episode here.)


Blockchain's clean technological solutions are born globally. At the moment we are witnessing 63 initiatives in 26 countries. Some are the efforts of innovation by the main utilities and sellers. Others are rapidly evolving start-ups by cryptocurrency entrepreneurs. Many will disappear in the next year or two, but as a group they keep a significant promise for innovation.
