Executives from Australian blockchain energy sharing project Power Ledger have recently met with some of the nation’s highest ranking leaders, including the Governor of Western Australia.
On February 1, WA’s Government House tweeted a photograph of Power Ledger Co-founder Dr Jemma Green with the state’s Governor Kim Beazley, who is also a former Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition.
The tweet says Government house “received a briefing” from Dr Green and that it was “great to hear” about the Perth-based company winning Sir Richard Branson’s Extreme Tech challenge.

Power Ledger recently tightened its grip on the Asian energy market by signing a major deal with a Japanese solar company.
Sharing Energy Co. will use the decentralised trading platform to track renewable energy consumption from 100 customers across the regions of TokyoKansai, Chubu and Kyushu.
Power Ledger expects the project to grow from 100 rooftops to over 55,000 rooftops by the end of 2020 and build on its “growing momentum in Asia.”
