As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.

Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center for the next episode of EnergySource Innovation Stream. The series highlights new energy technologies with the potential to reshape the global energy system through discussions with companies and individuals working diligently to bring those innovations to market at scale. On Friday, September 4, from 9:30 – 10:00 a.m. EDT, the Global Energy Center will host John Chappell, director of business development for the energy industry at BlockApps, who will discuss how BlockApps’ STRATO platform tracks and exchanges blockchain-backed carbon credits for buildings’ energy usage.

Mr. Chappell will explain how the STRATO platform tracks buildings’ carbon intensity, produces reliable data for regulatory compliance, and generates profitable carbon credits. He will describe how property managers can use the platform to view all pertinent data—including carbon emissions and opportunities for efficiency—in a single ledger, which enables companies to make intelligent, data-driven decisions. As a case study, he will showcase how the platform is used in high efficiency, Internet of Things-enabled co-generator units in New York City.

Please join this conversation via the web application Zoom, which is accessible through your web browser, the Zoom desktop or mobile app, and by phone. If you wish to join the question and answer period, you must join by app or web. You must register to receive further information on how to join the virtual audience.
