The curriculum focuses on Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology to promote an open, strategic, and distributed approach in energy value chains.
Many climate programs have been established over the years. However, the intrinsic multilateral and international approach poses many difficulties in linking political commitment to technical involvement and contribution, for example, in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Firstly, the curriculum will study the contribution of Blockchain to transparency, traceability, and trust in environmental-related programs. The creation of more resilient, inclusive, and democratic European energy systems will prepare for an adequate response to threats and disasters. Distributed energy resources (DER) require the distributed collection and management of data (smart meters, production plans, prosumers). This curriculum will study distributed methodologies to strengthen the digital-enabled circular, climate-neutral, and sustainable economy through the technical management of virtual power plants, transmission and distribution networks, and energy communities.
The attestation and validation of energy production methodologies will distinguish green and environmentally friendly production cases from traditional ones, particularly for blue, green, and grey hydrogen. The use of Blockchain will be applied to revolutionary business models and programs in the energy and energy mobility sectors (Demand-Response, Vehicle to Grid, energy communities, self-consumption certification, etc.). Additionally, the monitoring and traceability of batteries for electric mobility, including managing the logic for monitoring their health status, allow for the use of such batteries in second-life applications.
The challenges described above will be addressed with innovative theoretical approaches to ensure privacy and security.
