As Astrid Schober, Wien Energy's chief innovation officer, stated, the company tests new services on basis of blockchain technologies in Vienna's Viertel Zwei. Wien Energy intends to step up business case and enter the market when necessary experience will be gained.
New business model is aimed at connecting electric car stations using blockchain technology. Moreover, amenities land registry and power supply also would be included in forthcoming project.
Blockchain technology was introduced in Wien Energy earlier, but only for commercial transactions. According to Astrid Schober, the company would not stop on this success, but it will be searching for other business models as hard as possible. Wien Energy does not want to be left behind in the technology progress.
Wien Energy is an integral part of Eurochain, a consortium of European utility providers. Participants of a consortium are active in learning new potential models for providing their services. It means that the energy industry is interested in the implementation of blockchain technologies.
