BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY APPLIED TO ENERGY COMMUNITIES AND ENERGY CERTIFICATION

Realization of proof of concept (POC) related to the application of Blockchain technology to the processes of the GSE (National Energy Services Manager).

The GSE, in line with its mission oriented towards environmental sustainability and in the awareness that it will not be possible to count on the mechanism of economic incentive as the only way to achieve these goals, has started a phase of experimentation aimed at identifying possible applications of Blockchain technology in these areas. The application cases implemented by ADAMANTIC for the GSE were:

PoC1: Notarization of Thermal Account Data – the project has realized the necessary data notarization functions through blockchain technology to keep permanent the information characteristic of an energy verification process and automate in a certified way the verifications of the GSE Thermal Account Function;

PoC2: Simulation of certified Energy Communitiesthe project has produced a functioning system that allows the certified simulation in blockchain technology of the typical processes of the Energy Communities, providing for the interaction of the actors according to their role (Community Manager, Prosumer, Consumer, Producer, Supplier, etc.) in order to verify the correct functioning and the effective “green impact” of reward formulas through the use of smart contracts (chain codes) that feed the wallets of the actors according to their respective behaviors and the profitable trend of energy flows.

To meet energy saving and Open Data characteristics (mandatory in Public Administration contexts), the implemented architecture envisaged the use of two blockchains / DLTs:

  • Permissioned: Hyperledger Fabric (updating BESU node)
  • Permissionless: Ethereum

Data hybridization between the two platforms was performed through a merkle tree. The project also included the implementation of a mobile app for wallet verification and mobile operations by process actors.

MANAGEMENT OF ECONOMIC AND TAX PROCEDURES

Project for the implementation of an automated system for the management of procedures related to corporate and documentary taxation

The aim of the project is to create an Application that is easy to use and allows the detailed management of all practices related to corporate taxation. There are automatic alert functions, notifications to and from external consultants, document site and workflow on busniess flows. The role of blockchain technology is particularly strategic because it makes the documentation secure, immutable and certifies the certain date of drafting; in some cases the digital signature of the manager too. For this reason, a first phase of the project provides for the implementation of the extra-chain tools (web and mobile apps) necessary for the management of all business flows, while a second phase, already planned, will provide for certification in blockchain technology.

SUPPLY CHAIN

Investment experimentation project in agreement with the Customer for the certification and monitoring of the entire end-to-end supply chain in the production, distribution and consumption process of craft beer.

The project has extended the functionality of a web platform, with mobile app, for the management of the “Craft Beer” product supply chain by providing blockchain certification in order to:

  • uniquely identify the drums send out by the factory through a specific georeferenced IoT and a unique ID, readable through NFC and QR-code
  • digitize production starting from the recipe and recording all the next steps ( production, preparation per batch or single drum, distribution) until the plug attachment in the pub
  • check the timing and methodology of transport of the product, also having returns on consumption and liking
  • ensure the consumer of the quality of the product
  • activate market analysis and collect reviews from consumers and managers

Process actors use the system through a mobile app. All “signatures” are registered on Stark DataChain (developed by ADAMANTIC on a Hyperledger Fabric-Linux Foundation basis), with timestamp and geo-localization.

The working and productive platform (in the production version the connection to the blockchain is not currently activated) is easily verticalizable on different scenarios and has been prepared to expand business logics also through the use of smart contracts (chain codes).

HEALTH

Blockchain automation procedure in sending ALERT and TIP to users following algorithmic feedback on data collected by medical and fitness devices.

The project involved the implementation of a mobile app that collects information from different devices (wearable or medical). Through the implementation of a series of predispositions, the App is able to interface with all the most common IoT in the field of medical data collection (both fitness sensors and certified medical tools). Information collection is managed in order to be processed by an AI engine that analyzes information and track recurrences or predictions by returning an alert or other types of message to the user. This implementation provides for a perimeter of experimentation (outside the contract) where the management of the data collected by the App through an ad hoc Smart Contract represents the only connection point between the sensitive data of the user’s personal data and his medical data. In this way, the current flow of sending alerts and tips can take place without involving any physical subject in the process (unless the Smart Contract that in blockchain can be activated only by the user’s own private key).The development is currently in the experimental phase while the project is making the flow on extra chain architecture productive. Following the result of the experimentation, the Client has made himself available to propose the innovative solution in a productive environment.

The blockchain technology used is Stark DataChain (developed by ADAMANTIC on a Hyperledger Fabric-Linux Foundation basis).

The itinerary will be in ‘senior’ and ‘young’ version. Inside the Museum a selection of exhibits will come together and lead us to visit the Park virtually and physically. In addition to the 3 itineraries, 5 episodes will be created: the characters of the different eras will entertain the visitor with stories, anecdotes and curiosities. Through the Chatbox the characters will be able to answer the visitor’s questions. The tour will be enriched by 3D videos, 360° photos, photos, additional texts, drone video footage, plastics, MP3 and LIS.
