Event description

Description

In partnership with JWN Energy

Your expertise and thought leadership is requested at the first Canadian Blockchain for Energy Roundtable.

Why blockchain. Why now?

The energy industry operates in a complex environment within multiple geographies in highly intricate business models across subsidiaries, joint venture and supplier/ subcontractor relationships.


These factors make the energy industry ripe to benefit from blockchain advantages such as increased security and fraud prevention, cost take out and accelerated efficiency. This roundtable event will bring together decision makers to discuss challenges and solutions in developing a framework for collaboration and implementation of blockchain technology in the energy industry.


JWN Inspired Conversations roundtables are designed to seek input and views from a variety of industry participants on an issue of significant importance to the energy industry starting with a ‘context setting’ portion followed by a roundtable discussion – carried out under the Chatham House Rules – to encourage open and purposeful dialogue.


Blockchain roundtable topics:

  • Identification of process inefficiencies in current supply chain/business model transactions

  • Generating ideas on possible ways to drive alignment across oil and gas ecosystems

  • Defining the roadmaps for blockchain implementation that will drive efficiencies and accelerated returns, both within your company and accros the supply chain
