You are invited to a unique conference “Getting to Grips with Blockchain,” which will take place on January 22-23, 2019 in Washington, DC.
At the conference you will learn how blockchain will become the connective tissue of smart cities and the immutable memory.
More specifically, you will learn:
- How blockchain works; how it is affecting the energy industries and smart cities.
- Whether it is friend or foe; whether it will disrupt the old electric and gas order or just accelerate transactions through inherent efficiency.
- Who the winners and loser will be. Will new entrants push out legacy players, as the internet has pushed out printed paper in publishing?
Learn or lose.
Having started confused — and even hostile — to blockchain myself, I began a quest to understand it. I became convinced that it is the future and that, as a communicator, I need to spread the word.
So I have collaborated with some of the top experts in the world of blockchain — including the Energy Blockchain Consortium — and have put together an intensive blockchain conference to be held at the offices of Dentons, the world’s largest law firm, on K Street in Washington, DC.
Our conference will be a day-and-half of immersive, worthwhile learning, complete with case examples of how blockchain works; how it will revolutionize contracting and recordkeeping, becoming the indelible record and the “provenance of everything,” from small transactions to massive deals.
In utility industry, for example, blockchain will be the conduit between distributed generators and the established regional utility but also between two or more generators or mini-grids. It will speed up smart contracts: all transactions involving what the energy company buys and what it sells. Smart contracts entered into at the point of execution will cut huge paper trails, back office labor, and make things run faster and with absolute records.
I am as excited about this digital revolution — it is a natural extension of the world of smart meters and smart grids — as I have been of any development in electricity and gas in many years.

If you want to add to the proceeding by submitting a paper or speaking, several spots have been reserved for visionaries who see new uses and possible abuses of this powerful new tool.
My hope is that this conference will take executives and those moving up in management by the hand from what blockchain is to how you can deploy it in everything from contracts to keeping track of nuclear materials to complete inventory control.
Keep on top.
Evolve as the technology evolves. If you are employed by an energy company, contract with one, or hope to get into some aspect of the energy business, this conference can be a vital step.
As Steve Jobs said, “Don’t be afraid, you can do it.”
Don’t be afraid, it is a great new tool. Come and learn from experts, academics, hands-on professionals, and those who are creating the future.
