Blockchain is the technology underlying the sometimes infamous digital currency, Bitcoin. However, applications of blockchain technology go well beyond digital currencies, and are poised to bring big changes to a variety of industries. This presentation will provide a non-technical, easy-to-understand explanation of blockchain technology, review industrial applications where it is being developed or proposed, as well as provide an in-depth look on its potential impact on the energy vertical. Presenter Molly Suda is a Partner at K&L Gates LLP, a fully integrated global law firm.  Molly focuses her practice on regulatory compliance, enforcement, and transactional matters involving electric utilities, electric transmission owners, independent power producers, power marketers, and public utility holding companies that are active in the electricity, capacity, and ancillary services markets in the United States.  She also advises on the regulatory implications of integrating distributed energy resources and energy storage into wholesale energy and capacity markets, as well as issues associated with applications of blockchain technology in the energy industry.
