Energy Trading via Blockchain Technology in the Local Green Grid (Smart Services World II technology programme)

From heatings to connected cars – devices of all kinds feature digital controls today. Combining these networked "things" with intelligent algorithms create powerful assistance functions for the user. However, they are integrated almost exclusively via smartphones and associated platforms. "ENTOURAGE" is developing an innovative open ecosystem in which a wide variety of devices, platforms and services can collaborate on an equal footing. A technical and organisational architecture creates a marketplace for data protection-friendly assistants where small and medium-sized enterprises can also offer their services.
