Kyocera and LO3 ENERGY to Demonstrate Blockchain-Managed Virtual Power Plant

Test VPP to combine companies’ peer-to-peer network technology and renewable energy products for improved energy distribution

Kyoto/London − Kyocera and New York-based LO Energy Inc. today announced a joint project to test the feasibility of a blockchain-managed virtual power plant (VPP) utilizing a peer-to-peer*1 distributed consensus network. The test started February 28th, 2019 at Kyocera’s Yokohama Nakayama Office in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, where a small VPP was installed using the company’s solar photovoltaic (PV) modules and batteries. The energy will be controlled through LO3 Energy’s distributed ledger technology to log and manage energy flow. LO3’s blockchain technology is used for verifying and recording transactions, enabling consumer “sharing” of energy they produce with their own solar panels via a microgrid, which can reduce the burden on the larger energy grid.
