Blockchain Technology for RECs, Tracking Systems, and Other Energy Market Applications
Jul 17 @ 1:00 pm EDT – 2:00 pm EDT

There is a lot of hype around blockchain and distributed ledger systems. There is much uncertainty about how this emerging technology can be used to support new and existing energy markets.

In this webinar, Alex Anich, Manager—Renewable Market Intelligence at NRG Renewables, and Ben Gerber, Executive Director of the Midwest Renewable Energy Tracking System (MRETS), will sift through the hype and uncertainty to help attendees understand what blockchain and distributed ledger technology is; what some of the positive and negative aspects of the technology are; and how regulators, utilities, and renewable market participants can evaluate the growing number of blockchain applications in development. The presenters will also use a debate-style format to discuss a case study of when blockchain technology may not be the best solution for a specific platform. There will be opportunity for audience questions.

This webinar is presented by the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) for the RPS Collaborative. More information and resources are available at www.cesa.org/projects/renewable-portfolio-standards.

Internet of Things for Smarter Manufacturing
Jul 31 @ 12:00 pm EDT – 1:00 pm EDT

The modern manufacturing industry is investing in new technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), big data analytics, cloud computing and cyber security to cope with system complexity, increase information visibility, improve production performance, and gain competitive advantage in the global market. These advances are rapidly enabling a new generation of smart manufacturing that “enable all information about the manufacturing process to be available whenever it is needed, wherever it is needed, and in an easily comprehensible form across the enterprise and among interconnected enterprises”. Smart manufacturing goes beyond the automation of manufacturing shop floors but rather depends on data-driven innovations to realize high levels of autonomy and optimization of manufacturing enterprises.

This webinar will review the Internet of Things (IoT) for smart manufacturing that help you:

1. Understand the evolution of IoT technology and its applications in the manufacturing domain
2. Develop the strategy to implement IoT technology for smart manufacturing
3. Understand the technology of cloud computing and fog computing for IoT data analytics
4. Realize full potentials of big data through new analytical methods and tools for smarter manufacturing
