Grid+ Releases Whitepaper on Ethereum and Our Energy System

NEW YORK, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A newly released whitepaper by blockchain-based energy grid system Grid+, a ConsenSys project, explains with supporting data how the Ethereum blockchain is making energy markets more efficient, decreasing consumer cost, and paving the way to a cleaner future.

A few highlights of the in-depth and data-saturated whitepaper include:

  • A market-driven approach to further green-energy generation and storage penetration
  • How administrative costs can be curbed in energy (and other industries) by "user agency", which occurs when users hold their own value tokens
  • How Ethereum brings several efficiencies to the energy industry, an industry historically slow to adopt new technologies

A link to the complete whitepaper, titled "The Future of Energy," is available at
