Blockchain for the Energy Industry, Robert Gordon University, Thursday, 07. March 2019

Blockchain is everyone's new favourite buzzword...but what does it mean? And what are the implications for the energy industry? 
Join us for an evening at Robert Gordon University to get a few different perspectives on what this new technology is, and what it means for the oil and gas industry now, and in the future. 
We have arranged a number of different people from across the energy industry, bringing a variety of opinions and perspectives about how blockchain will impact in the coming years.
Andy Watt will give an open with a brief statement on what blockchain is, and the type of things that are possible with this technology. The premise of this presentation is "Blockchain is not bitcoin - it's so much more". Andy is a software engingeer who has worked in the oil and gas industry for 15 years, and a ConsenSys certified blockchain developer. 
Adam Brown will talk about the legal challenges around blockchain. Adam works in the Energy, Transport and Infrastructure practice at Dentons, with a particular focus on the regulation of energy markets and its interaction with new commercial, technological and public policy developments
Colin McCrae will give some details about the technical aspects which underpin the blockchain. This will include a high level description of what a smart contract is, and how they can be used in the energy industry. Colin is a process engineer and ConsenSys certified blockchain developer. 
Alf Robertson and Graeme Taylor, of Agile Energy will then discuss how they see blockchain integrating with their business. Agile Energy Recovery Limited is developing a low carbon energy park near Inverurie. 
Gavin Stevenson and Martin Beveridge will talk about their product SupplyPort. SupplyPort aims to revolutionise the entire oil and gas project management and supply chain, implementing a fully transparent and collaborative blockchain solution which runs for the life of the development. Supply Ports will initially target Small Pool operators, with the intent to scale up for any size of project, and across different sectors and industries. 
Refreshments will be served after the talks conclude. Snacks will be served, with beer and wine, providing an opportunity to talk to the speakers and other attendees.
