Real-Time Audits Utilizing Blockchain for Environmental Attributes Credits

  • Assistant Professor of Analytics Andrew Kumiega
  • Adjunct Professor Daniel Waterloo, Industrial Technology and Management and Stuart School of Business
  • Steven Josephs, P.E., Renewable Energy Consultant

Abstract:

There are multiple environmental attribute credits (EAC) granted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. All EAC require an audit trail. There is currently a proposal to issue an EAC for electricity from biogas that is utilized in vehicles. This EAC is unique in that both the creation of electricity from biogas and the actual usage of the electricity in an electric vehicle needs an audit trail. This initial research proposal lays out the need for an audit, the economic/logistic hurdles of auditing small farms, and the application of Hyperledger Fabric to provide the continuous audit.

 

All Illinois Tech faculty, students, and staff are invited to attend.
