How Financial Technologies Can Revolutionalise the Renewable Energy Industry
Please join Canadian, Dr. Matthew Peloso, Founder and CEO of Sun Electric, as he explores how blockchain has revolutionalised the way we think of transactions, leading to the dramatic rise of FinTech industries applicable to everything from shipping to bills payment. Bitcoin, the infamous launch of currencies encoded in cryptographic codes, still trades and has shown the world that information technologies impact on businesses and transactions are here to stay. In this presentation, Dr. Peloso will discuss how financial technologies can revolutionalise the renewable energy industry - demonstrating a certification of clean power projects in Singapore and a live transactional system for authenticating electricity transactions over Singapore's world-class electricity network.
