How to Share New Energy Models Through Blockchain?

The PROSUME Energy Foundation presents an innovative platform that will revolutionise the development of new energy community models

ZUG, Switzerland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The future of energy is peer-to-peer: PROSUME Energy Foundation is now disclosing a new revolutionary platform to exchange electricity from renewable and fossil sources. It connects independent power producers, consumers, innovative utility companies and energy communities in a locally shared market where each peer is free to interact in a multi-tenant ecosystem.

The members of the Foundation, professionals with a strong and long-time experience in the energy sector as well as in the blockchain softwares, have developed a platform that will deal with many of today’s problems and opportunities related to the energy sharing sector like support for regulation frameworks, fair policy pricing and new energy models and opportunities, network balancing, smart payment and smart billing.

PROSUME is a blockchain-based platform that, thanks also to its own decentralized and self-regulated monitoring system, guarantees an autonomous, independent and digitized smart place that will permit users to exchange different energy sources, promoting and accelerating new energy community models.

“We strongly believe in the sharing energy model based on the peer to peer exchange system, for this reason PROSUME platform has as its main goal to be the most innovative place to develop energy communities, in order to give everyone the possibility to exchange energy in a more transparent, traceable, accessible, flexible, resilient and sustainable wayaffirms Alfredo Giardina, Co-founder of PROSUME Energy Foundation.

The three pillars of PROSUME can be summarized in the symbolical “D”:

  • Decentralization: as any consumer can clearly see in his utility bill, the most expensive cost element about energy is referred to distribution services and taxes rather than actual energy consumption. PROSUME wants to study and develop new decentralised energy community models where “prosumers” would become the main actors.
  • Digitalization: the evermore-conscious consumer could help the whole energy sector to better understand how to balance energy peaks in order for its play to optimize the use of resources and promote the development of more sustainable energy policies, including the diversification of sources, etc.
  • Decarbonization: starting a fossil or nuclear company today is not economically convenient anymore; the companies would need several years to amortize its initial costs due to the high investments needed; furthermore, a great part of the primary sources wouldn’t be local, increasing costs even further. It is for this reason that small energy companies are trying to find alternatives by exploiting local sources, giving priority to the most sustainable and renewable ones;

“PROSUME solutions improve efficiency while reducing time and costs in managing network and energy infrastructures. We aim to combine the network and energy layer to build a blockchain-based Internet of Energy, reducing the points of failure and the need for additional hardware from its adaptability in integrating with available and installed technologies” continues Mr. Giardina.

The mission of the Foundation is to promote decentralizing power models and empower an energy community through the blockchain software technology through the implementation of peer to peer energy exchange policies targeting possible solutions for all the existing physical and legal energy framework barriers, investing in Research & Development to offer innovative hardware and IoT-devices related to smart metering, smart grid, smart billing, energy routers and devices.

PROSUME gives the opportunity to several communities to interact and subexist allowing many different applications. It works as a p2p energy exchange service in different platforms like a smart community (empowering people to participate in specific aggregator requests of energy demands, where the consumer chooses from different energy sources like green, local, fossil, or sustainable, avoiding intermediaries), energy storage/transmission exchange, electric vehicle platform, etc.

Additional functionalities will be added and upgraded to the PROSUME platform to provide services such as flexibility market operation, assets visualization across the value chain, integration of the business process in the regulatory framework, and other compatible energy apps, hardware, etc.

Several energy companies from all around Europe have already showed a keen interest in this project. PROSUME is now negotiating eight different pilot projects in Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.

The PROSUME token launch

PROSUME is conducting a token distribution event that will offer an upgradeable ERC20 derivate token named PEF on the Ethereum platform. The proceeds of the token distribution event will be used to implement PROSUME operations and to develop the PROSUME platform.

These tokens will then enable “prosumers” to be part of a platform where electricity assets delivered by various sources and providers can be exchanged. Tokens accepted for this ICO are ETH (ethereum), BTC (bitcoin) and LTC (litecoin). The Pre-ICO will start the 27 of September 2017 and last for 12 days, offering the chance for early adopters and strategic partners to exchange tokens for ETH, BTC or LTC with a significant Bonus (47%).

Global Top 100 City Destination Ranking – London among the Top 5 Cities

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#africa--Global market research company Euromonitor International will present for the first time at the World Travel Market (WTM) London, the highly anticipated Top 100 City Destinations Ranking report, now incorporating global travel trends. Ahead of the release of the full city destination ranking on November 7, 2017, Euromonitor International reveals today insights on how travel trends are borne out of the opportunities and challenges that cities face.

According to Euromonitor International, London is the only UK city listed in the top 100 city destinations ranking, with 19.19 million tourists visiting the city in 2016. However, due to recent terrorist attacks, arrivals to London will see a slower growth of 3.4 percent in 2017, compared to a national average growth of 5.2 percent. Euromonitor predicts that post Brexit, other UK cities will grow at a faster rate, driven by rail developments, as UK authorities look for alternatives to improve transport links beyond London. Cities that could benefit from this are Edinburgh, the second ranked UK city with 1.6 million inbound arrivals, Birmingham and Manchester (1.2m), as well as Glasgow (688,000).

Euromonitor International Senior Travel Analyst, Wouter Geerts, comments: “The UK is in the throes of Brexit, which seems to be impacting every political and corporate decision made. Depending on your interests, Brexit is a good or bad thing for the travel industry. While many will argue that projects are still focused too much on London, the positive outlook and hope is that projects like Crossrail and the Thameslink Programme are the start of a rail revolution. What the UK government might be lacking in ambition, is made up tenfold by companies like Hyperloop One, which currently is still in the concept and testing stages of its hyperloop infrastructure.”

HKTDC: “Think Asia, Think Hong Kong” Inspires London Audience

Asia Opportunities, Technology and Belt and Road Collaboration Spotlighted

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--"Think Asia, Think Hong Kong," a large-scale Hong Kong business promotion organised in London by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and supported by more than 60 UK organisations, attracted over 2,100 participants from the United Kingdom, Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland.

Over a three-day period (19-21 September), a series of activities were held, including business missions, a gala dinner, and a full-day symposium featuring 50 high-profile speakers in panel discussions and thematic seminars, plus more than 220 business matching meetings. Returning to the UK since its launch in 2011, this flagship promotion profiled Hong Kong's strengths as a business hub for British companies looking to expand to China and Asia. Building on the close ties between the UK and Hong Kong, businesses were urged to consider new collaboration opportunities such as technology (including FinTech), marketing and branding, creative and entertainment, as well as the potential from the Belt and Road Initiative

Margaret Fong, Executive Director of the HKTDC, said “trade and investment has been the bedrock of our business relationship”. Ms Fong also mentioned the new trade flows which are emerging and the new trade cooperation agreements which are being put into place such as the upcoming Free Trade Agreement with the 10-nation ASEAN community.

The Hong Kong delegation was led by Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), who reminded the audience of the long-standing trade and economic relationship with the UK and added, “Despite the continuous opening up of the Mainland China economy, Hong Kong continues to be an ideal gateway for foreign companies, including, of course, British companies, to tap the fast-growing Greater China market. The unique advantages that Hong Kong enjoys under ‘one country, two systems’ and our very strong commercial links with the Mainland of China naturally make us the preferred location for doing business in Asia.”

Guest of honour Greg Hands, Minister of State for Trade Policy and Minister for London, said he was pleased that London is the first city to host “Think Asia, Think Hong Kong” twice and commented “I strongly believe that the UK and Hong Kong are only just beginning to realise the opportunities for our partnership”.

Closer partnerships in the new economic order

The morning symposium started with a lively and upbeat panel on Asia in the New Economic Order, which covered many of Hong Kong’s defining advantages such as its legal framework and infrastructure and discussed the need to take advantage of the great opportunity that Asia currently offers. Victor Chu, Chairman, First Eastern Investment Group, described Hong Kong as “buzzing, active and at the cutting edge of innovation and the best bridge to China and other parts of Asia”; while Douglas Flint, Group Chairman, HSBC Holdings plc, describing the Belt and Road Initiative as “one of the most exciting concepts ever to have been conceived” and a “huge opportunity for Asia”.

Navigating Belt and Road opportunities through Hong Kong

The Belt and Road Initiative, described as currently the largest and most important global development plan, was a recurring key theme of the day and featured in The Belt and Road Initiative: Partnering for Prosperity panel discussion during the main symposium as well as in the thematic session Hong Kong: Gateway to Belt and Road Opportunities, co-organised with the HKMA Infrastructure Financing Facilitation Office (IFFO). Gregory Hodkinson, Chairman, ARUP Group Ltd, described the Belt and Road as a modern global initiative that is “more than a growth story, it is a story about the fundamental choices we face as a shared society”. Laura Cha, Chairman, Financial Services Development Council, Hong Kong, explained that “financing demand is where the Hong Kong advantage comes in – it is the primary market for Chinese companies to access capital”.

Tapping the Chinese mainland and Asian markets

According to a recent research among 1,000 UK companies commissioned by the HKTDC, the biggest opportunities that businesses recognise for launching into the Chinese mainland is its huge consumer base (42%), followed by its growing middle class (35%) and ability to be early adopters of technology (27%).

The thematic session Doing Business in China and throughout Asia highlighted the opportunity around Asia’s burgeoning middle-class consumers and the importance of e-commerce in expanding into this market with Michelle Leung, Senior Vice President, Fung Omni Services, Fung Group, explaining how easy it is to kick-start setting up a business in just two to three months. The changing nature of business was highlighted by Jonathan Cummings, Chairman, FITCH Hong Kong, who said “ten years ago, it was all about the big brands, consumers are becoming more and more market savvy and niche brands are gaining popularity”.

Exploring Hong Kong’s FinTech ecosystem

Hong Kong, as an international financial centre with a highly developed information and communications technology infrastructure, is well-positioned to become a premier FinTech hub. In the thematic session on the topic of Hong Kong: Asia’s FinTech Capital, Dr Lee George Lam, Chairman of Hong Kong Cyberport, opened by saying “China is the largest FinTech market in the world and it is growing”. Dr David Chung Wai-keung, Under Secretary for Innovation and Technology of the HKSAR Government, added “Hong Kong will become Asia’s FinTech Capital” as Li Shu-Pui, Executive Director, Financial Infrastructure, HKMA, confirmed that “any Chinese companies wanting to go global come to Hong Kong first”.

Strengthening UK-China cooperation in innovation

As UK enterprises expand into Asia, Chinese mainland and Asian companies are also looking for international investment and business opportunities with UK companies. Hong Kong is the ideal facilitator to help both sides find the right partners, matching relevant businesses together and providing professional services throughout the process.

The fourth thematic session UK-Sino Investment Partnerships in Innovation and Technologies focused on how the “connectivity” between Hong Kong, China and the UK helps businesses start and grow in Hong Kong. Speakers were positive in their outlook for Hong Kong’s position, with Shusen Meng, President, China Unicom Global Ltd, commenting “I have no doubt that Europe and the rest of the world will rely on Hong Kong as a super connector”.

According to THE SAGE GROUP, Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Afflicts 42 to 60 Million Chinese Citizens

BEAUFORT, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--$CLI #CLI--A new analysis published by THE SAGE GROUP concludes that 5.6 to 6.3 million Chinese suffer from the most severe form of PAD, critical limb ischemia (CLI).

“China is known as the Diabetes Capital of the World,” stated Mary L. Yost, President of THE SAGE GROUP. “According to our estimates, it is also the PAD Capital of the World with the highest disease prevalence. China likely leads in the number with CLI. We believe that PAD represents a major, underestimated problem for the Chinese economy and healthcare system.”

“Although it is commonly believed that PAD is a ‘Western’ disease with a significantly lower prevalence in Asians, our research indicates this is not the case. One of the key reasons is that there are ethnic differences in the threshold value of ABI, which lead to underestimation of PAD prevalence in countries such as Japan and China,” Yost explained.

Commenting on PAD risk factors in China, Yost observed, “Over the last 20 years, diabetes, hypertension and chronic kidney disease have increased dramatically. Prevalence of these cardiovascular risk factors has risen to levels almost equivalent to the U.S. Although China’s population is currently younger than the U.S., Japan and Western Europe, its population is aging rapidly. Furthermore, the prevalence of smoking, the strongest risk factor for PAD, is considerably higher than in the U.S. and Europe. Exposure to secondhand smoke is widespread.”

About the Report: China Peripheral Artery Disease and Critical Limb Ischemia Prevalence and Incidence

The report contains a comprehensive analysis of the current prevalence and incidence of PAD and CLI in China. Epidemiology of diabetes, hypertension, chronic kidney disease and smoking and the impact of these risk factors on PAD are detailed. PAD and CLI prevalence and incidence are estimated for 2015-2035 employing the Diabetes Method as well as other risk factors. The number of patients with intermittent claudication (IC) is also included in the analysis of symptomatic disease.

Additional information: http://thesagegroup.us/pages/reports/china-pad-cli.php.

THE SAGE GROUP, a research and consulting company, specializes in peripheral vascular disease in the lower limbs, specifically chronic venous disease (CVD), PAD, CLI, IC, diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) and the costs and consequences of PAD and amputation. Additional information: www.thesagegroup.us.

For Asia’s rapidly aging populations, innovation and forward-thinking policies drive retirement security

 TAIPEI, Taiwan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The quickening pace of aging in Asia – a region with more than half the world’s population over 60 – has urgent implications for the region’s families, retirees, pensions and policy makers.

“Given Asia’s aging populations, retirement challenges are particularly acute in the region,” said Professor David Blake, director of the Pensions Institute at London’s Cass Business School. “Solutions require urgent action from both businesses and individuals, and governments need to implement policies that support this action.”

With falling birth rates and declining death rates, Asia’s societies face the twin burdens of supporting rapidly growing elderly populations with shrinking or stagnant working-age populations. In Taiwan, for instance, it is projected that each person over 65 years of age will be supported by only 1.5 working age people by 2050, compared with 5.9 in 2015. Meanwhile, in nations like Japan, low or negative interest rates have discouraged the savings incentives needed to meet the growing financial costs of living longer.

To address these retirement challenges in Asia and throughout the world, Professor Blake, along with faculty members from National Chengchi University in Taiwan, hosted some of the world’s best minds at Longevity 13, the 13th International Longevity Risk and Capital Markets Solutions Conference, in Taipei. Longevity 13 is a forum attended by pension, insurance, capital market, actuarial and academic professionals to discuss market-based solutions to retirement quandaries posed by aging populations. Among those who addressed this year’s conference were Amy Kessler, senior vice president and Prudential’s head of longevity risk transfer, and Dylan Tyson, executive vice president and former chief strategy officer for Prudential of Korea.

“With the rapid pace of demographic and societal changes, understanding the needs of individuals and families is more important than ever,” said Tyson. “Life insurers can help people achieve a secure retirement by providing solutions to retirement challenges, such as guaranteed income that a person can’t outlive.” Tyson added that retirement is an important issue for people of all socio-economic groups. Government policies need to support families of all income levels to save for retirement. A strong partnership with policymakers is critical for developing private-sector solutions, such as pooling longevity risk, while ensuring robust foundations for consumer protection and financial stability.

Prudential’s Kessler emphasized ways for life insurers to create lifetime income solutions that add value for individuals, while carefully managing risk and capital. She suggested that annuity solutions, which have been effective in the U.S. and other markets, can be adapted to help solve Asia’s retirement funding challenges. She also outlined policy and regulatory approaches that can encourage retirement readiness among individuals, and sound product design and risk management practices among insurers.

Since 2005, The International Longevity Risk and Capital Markets Solutions Conferences, organized by the Pensions Institute and Cass Business School, have been the major annual international events that bring together leading international industry and academic representatives, as well as policymakers, to meet and discuss longevity risk, as well as the market and government developments and responses necessary for managing that risk. Since 2011, Prudential has sponsored this conference series. The company’s thought leadership and research stemming from this event is widely read by the actuarial community, as well as insurers, academics and finance professionals.
