The Department of Electrical Engineering Technology, Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment, invites you to Prof. Sudeep Tanwar’s webinar entitled: “Role of Block Chain Technology to Secure Smart Grid”


The Smart Grid (SG) is one of the most critical infrastructures for smart cities to provide electrical services to consumers via digital communication. It is empowered by various technological advancements in sensing and control devices. SGs and the rise in the Internet of Things (IoT) enable efficient demand response management, dynamic energy pricing, and efficient information exchange. To tackle these challenges, Blockchain is an emerging platform used by researchers across the globe for developing decentralized applications and data storage, over and beyond its role as the technology underlying the cryptocurrencies. The basic tenet of this platform is that it allows one to create a distributed and replicated ledger of events, transactions, and data generated through various IT processes with strong cryptographic guarantees of tamper resistance, immutability, and verifiability. The Blockchain offers immutability, trust, reliability, transparency, and security in the data exchange between the entities involved in the SG application.
