In order to launch its second trial in Japan, Power Ledger teamed up with Japanese exposure voltaic provider Sharing Energy and electricity retail merchant eRex, the agency said in a press launch shared with Cointelegraph on Oct. 3.
Main area of Japan’s economy
The new Power Ledger’s trial will observe surplus exposure voltaic power ranges and electricity buying and marketing, integration blockchain-enabled P2P platform with family good meter programs inside the Kanto area.
With Japan’s capital Tokyo set in Kanto, the area is considered to be the principle engine of Japan’s economy and is the second largest sub-national economy on this planet after the United States’ California.
Access to cheaper power programs
Specifically, the trial intends to reveal the advantages of meted out power programs in countering the many feed-in-tariff (FIT) discount, which is regular for October 2019 and expected to have an effect on over 500,000 exposure voltaic power customers, the report notes.
By trialing Power Ledger’s know-how, Kanto can probably learn to monetise inexhaustible power investments and reach entry to cheaper power programs. The check with Sharing Energy and eRex is regular to run till December 2019.
As Cointelegraph reported, in August Power Ledger has introduced the completion of a joint trial of a blockchain-based system for post-FIT surplus energy in Osaka in partnership with Japanese Kansai Electric Power.
