Energy Blockchain Vendor and Deployment Tracker 3Q22

Vendors, Project Deployments, Use Cases, Investments, and Key Trends from the Emerging Energy Blockchain Market

Blockchain is a mathematical framework for decentralized information and systems management. Since roughly 2015, startups, utilities, and technology companies have financed and deployed demonstration and pilot projects to determine whether blockchain can address pain points across the energy industry. These projects focus on a wide range of use cases from transactive energy (TE) and peer-to-peer energy trading to supply chain management and renewable energy certificates. As the market has matured and the initial wave of investment in blockchain subsided, more than 30 companies have failed, and the market has become increasingly concentrated at the top.

New energy blockchain deployments peaked in 2018 and growth in the energy blockchain market has slowed in the past three years. Although TE and guarantees of origin remain the top use cases in the energy blockchain market, new project announcements indicate that vendors are still exploring other use cases such as Internet of Things (IoT), flexibility services, and wholesale energy trading.

This Guidehouse Insights report tracks global energy blockchain project deployments, use cases, and vendor activities around the world. It covers 175 active vendors and 504 projects across five global regions. This report provides a broad and representative view of the energy blockchain market.
