The next gold rush is on. Fueled by government mandates and net zero commitments, the oil and gas industry is ramping up production of low carbon fuels. Further out, massive investments in hydrogen are planned. To reach their full potential, these new fuels would need to prove their reduced emissions and environmental benefits. This could potentially transform the energy industry from one based on physical commodities to one driven by data and digital certificates. Blockchain technologies could play a vital role in this transformation, offering proof of provenance, true lifecycle carbon accounting, and trading of low-carbon premiums, while preventing double counting of climate claims.
