    2.00 - 3.15PMOnline - Webinar
    Blockchain is a distributed, digital ledger used to record and track information. It uses sophisticated algorithms to validate, encrypt, and instantaneously record this information in a secure and decentralized manner. Most people know it as the technology underpinning Bitcoin, but blockchain has enormous potential to disrupt many industries, including energy.
    We have just begun exploring the potential for blockchain, but already we are seeing some initiatives in the energy industry centered around blockchain. This webinar aims to explore the capabilities of blockchain, its disruptive potential and future applications.
    • Understand the basics of what blockchain is, how it can be used across different industries and how it  can create large productivity gains quickly throughout the energy industry
    • Analyse current projects introducing blockchain into the energy industry for automated decentralized energy payments, and how these might be a testbed for automated smart contracts for peer-to-peer communications and payments
    • Envisage what the true impact of blockchain in the energy industry will be in and how embracing R+D could place you in the lead.

    Developing MENA's Renewable Energy Market to Drive Job Growth

    Women in Clean Energy Business Luncheon

    Governments across MENA are embracing a flourishing clean energy industry and as they set ambitious renewable energy targets, we are seeing a major shift in the transition to a low carbon economy through the adoption of clean-tech solutions and necessary regulatory frameworks.
    Human resources will play a key role in its successful deployment, and the ability to attract and retain a broad and diverse pool of talented individuals bringing fresh perspectives, will encourage competition and support the sector to grow and evolve.
    According to EY's Women in Power and Utilities Index, women made up only 16% of the boardrooms of the world's largest utilities in 2016. The study also highlights that having more women on boards makes good business sense and improves the bottom-line. Well-documented evidence shows links between the presence of more women on the board and increased profitability, return on investment and innovation.
    This Clean Energy Business Council Luncheon will focus on how the transition to a green economy will bring economic growth, generate jobs, drive the growth of markets for sustainable products, technologies and services, and initiate innovation across the energy sector.
