Power Ledger, the Australian-based blockchain firm, has announced a partnership with Thai Digital Energy Development (TDED) to create a blockchain-based digital energy platform in the country.

On May 25, it has been reported that the platform will enable environmental commodity and peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading, in order to accelerate the adoption of renewable energy sources, as Thailand aims to generate 25% of its electricity from renewables by the year 2037.

However, Power Ledger’s blockchain-based transactive energy solutions include peer-to-peer energy trading and virtual power plants, along with trading in carbon credits and renewable energy certificates (REC).

It has been analyzed that TDED’s partnership with Power Ledger will see blockchain technology used to manage four BCPG clean power projects, including energy and carbon management at Chiang Mai University’s 12MW Smart Campus.

Power Ledger has been working with BCPG since 2018 when it launched a similar P2P energy trading trial in one of Bangkok’s central precincts.

Vinod Tiwari, the head of business development and sales of Power Ledger, said that the trial showed the “potential of using market-based blockchain-enabled energy sharing and trading as an incentive” to accelerate deployment of rooftop solar technology.

He believed that Thailand’s focus on investment in renewable power, along with his company’s technology can help the country to achieve its goal of running on 25% renewable energy by 2037.

Tiwari added:

“The platform acts as an operating system and innovative facilitator in the transformation of energy markets from centralised to hybrid, distributed energy markets underpinned by renewable energy and distributed energy resources. This unique market-based approach acts as an incentive to accelerate distributed energy resources and renewable energy deployment in communities and helps in achieving a country’s national renewable energy targets.”

Thus, the company is also eager to use the TDED partnership framework to approach other energy market participants across Thailand, who may also want to use its blockchain energy trading technology.
