California based enterprise technology services provider Abjayon has entered into partnership with India Smart Grid Forum (ISGF) to support the integration of blockchain platform with UPPCL’s billing system.

Uttar Pradesh is all set to launch India and South-Asia’s first blockchain-enabled Peer to Peer (P2P) trading of rooftop solar power. Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Ltd (UPPCL), Madhyanchal Vidyut Vitran Nigam Ltd (MVVNL) and Uttar Pradesh New and Renewable Energy Development Agency (UPNEDA) hosted the first of its kind pilot project involving energy generated from solar rooftop systems installed on buildings in Lucknow.

India Smart Grid Forum (ISGF) implemented the project along with blockchain technology partner Power Ledger, Australia and Abjayon Inc who supported the integration of blockchain platform with UPPCL’s billing system.

Commenting on the development, ISGF President, Reji Kumar Pillai said that “this pilot project will demonstrate the feasibility of rooftop solar energy trading through smart contracts on the blockchain platform between prosumers with their neighbouring households. Power Ledger’s platform integrates the transaction data from the smart meters to enable households to set prices, track energy trading in real time and enable the settlement of surplus solar energy transactions.”

“Peer to peer energy trading is very much required particularly in counties like India, as it answers many questions and challenges of Indian Discoms. Using this platform, prosumers can sell their excess energy to neighbours and also the energy doesn’t have to be transported from centrally located power plants which drastically reduces electricity transmission costs for Discoms making the whole business operations very much viable.  There are very few such pilots running across the world and none in South Asia so far. We are extremely proud to be the system integration partner in this pilot that paves the way for all discoms in India,” said Rohit Pareek, Vice President, Abjayon.

Abjayon has been focused on helping utilities to successfully implement the entire Oracle Utilities product suite. Its deep understanding and expertise in the domain has enabled the company to deliver highly modernized and transformative solutions to enterprises in various parts of the world. The company also offers expertise across various technology and cloud platforms to help customers in their digital transformation journey.
