Understand the disruptive potential of blockchain in the energy sector
On this course, you will study the incredibly disruptive potential of blockchain technology in the energy sector.
You will look at how blockchain works and start to understand the background, value proposition and geopolitical context that brought it to the centre of the world’s attention.
You will obtain a clear overview of how and why blockchain will take over the energy sector, optimizing old processes and empowering customers like never before. You will also explore the future of a new paradigm, where users can buy and sell energy from and to each other.
This course is designed for anyone who’s interested in learning more about blockchain and/or its role in the energy sector. A technical background or previous knowledge of blockchain is not required.
Martijn Onderwater completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
I'm afraid that I'm not a fan of this course. The blockchain introduction in week 1 is very shallow, and the following weeks are mostly interviews with some companies in the sector. Yes, they use blockchain, but it is a mystery why blockchain should be used instead of conventional technology. Each week took me less than an hour to complete, and I feel I would have learned a lot more watching videos on Youtube.
Having said that, the total time investment is not that large. So if you're considering this course, try it out, but don't expect the moon ;-)
