Power to the People: Jemma Green Rewired

    • News

In the first episode of our new series of ReWired: The Innovators, Adam Morton meets Dr Jemma Green - a former investment banker, entrepreneur and, most recently, interim mayor of the City of Perth.

She's also co-founder of energy trading start-up PowerLedger, which stormed through its Initial Coin Offering earlier this year and raised $34 million for its platform allowing electricity consumers to receive and trade energy with power companies, and each other.

Jemma talks of the demise of a century-old dynamic where energy consumers were at the end of a long line of service delivery, one that is being replaced, instead, with a "democratisation of power" where the user is King.

In this fascinating conversation, Green describes the many and varied paths she's taken to get to PowerLedger, from investment firms in London to the Camino de Santiago in Spain, and her vision for a future driven by "citizen utilities".

And yes, blockchain gets a mention, too. For more info, go to arena.gov.au/blog or find us on Facebook.
