Austria's largest energy supplier makes its debut on DLT-based E-Car Charger

Wien Energie, Austria's largest energy supplier, announced on 28 March a press release for electric cars based on distributed ledger technology (DLT).

As of the release, Wien Energie, in collaboration with blockchain tech company Riddle & Code, is testing a charging station for electric vehicles with & # 39; integrated secure machine identity & # 39; in Vienna. The new machines are intended to offer unchanging data interfaces that connect various aspects of the energy chain, including smart meters, producers and consumers.

In the initial phase, the station is said to enable real-time settlement of settlement transactions. Once the system has been proven, the system will start rolling out in the last quarter of 2019. The DLT chargers are said to be part of the "Peer 2 Peer im Quartier" research project, funded by the FFG (Austrian Research Promotion Office) and jointly implemented by Riddle & Code, Wien Energie and the AIT at Viertel Zwei.

Energy companies worldwide have experimented with distributed ledger and blockchain technologies. Earlier this month, the large British energy company OVO invested in blockchain company Electron through its recently launched technology division, Kaluza. The investment is said to be used for Electron to develop its energy platforms and systems and its distributed market.

Yesterday, major US energy company Ameren and Canadian software and solutions company Opus One Solutions announced that they will investigate the possible use of blockchain technology. Ameren, which currently serves around 2.4 million electrical and 900,000 gas users, is said to be investigating blockchain technology as part of its clean energy initiative.
