Dr. Christina Elberg

has been the co-managing director of ewi ER&S since June 2015. Dr. Elberg worked previously in research and consulting at EWI. Her areas of expertise include market design, regulation and electricity market analysis. In several of her consulting projects at EWI, she investigated questions in the area of electricity market design—in particular, the need for and the design of capacity mechanisms, the integration of renewable energy into the German, European and American electricity systems, the regional system security under grid bottlenecks as well as the potential of demand-side management.

Disruptive Potential in the German Electricity System – an Economic Perspective on Blockchain

The hype around blockchain provided some rather discouraging scenarios for companies in the German electricity system. Our new analysis recently shows that blockchain currently has no disruptive potential for peer-to-peer power transactions. The study illustrates that while platforms (e.g., based on blockchain technology) for peer-to-peer transactions do not face organizational or regulatory barriers, levies, taxes and surcharges on final consumer power consumption burden the disruptive potential of the technology and hamper deployment. Public blockchain-based platforms will come with additional costs for underlying distributed mechanisms.
