In his address, Mr Davies provided insight into the rich and untapped data sets in the home that can be unlocked by advanced Artificial Intelligence and discussed how this can be used to fuel the democratisation of energy. He brought this to life by showcasing Verv’s live community trials where its blockchain-based peer-to-peer energy trading platform is being implemented to drive down electricity bills and improve access to green energy.
This event was the fourth of the 2018 ESB Lecture Series entitled The Electric Lifestyle.
