The Province of British Columbia, a significant provider of Canadian energy and natural resources, is rising to meet the global challenge of climate change. The Province’s CleanBC strategy is being delivered in collaboration with Indigenous communities and businesses to seize new clean economy opportunities and help communities adapt to the impacts of climate change. This kind of collaboration is needed to address the global scale of climate change.

The LF Energy Project is taking up the challenge to shift from a grid type architecture to a system of systems by building the interfaces and touch points between these various systems. The old system was built with a point to point framework. Now we need a many to many architecture and communication framework. That’s the whole of the new energy paradigm – profoundly distributed energy renewable resources that are orchestrated to provide constant and reliable electricity.

In this talk we will discuss the establishment and early execution of a multi-party, cross Linux Foundation collaboration including the Province of British Columbia, large multinational energy producers, smaller software companies and other key stakeholders. We will examine how Hyperledger Indy and Aries technology is directly applied to the energy sector to bring digital trust to the provenance and Greenhouse Gas emissions profile of energy sources such as Liquified Natural Gas. The goal is to meaningfully contribute to the decarbonization of the economy through globally open, cryptographically verifiable representations of the origin and characteristics of energy.
