Scott Carmichael

Researcher at National Renewable Energy Lab

Scott Carmichael is the lead developer of NREL’s foreseeTM home energy management system, which combines machine-learning approaches with advanced control strategies to accurately predict and provide demand response capacity.

His interest in blockchain technology traces back to the early days of Bitcoin. He previously developed a secure hardware Bitcoin wallet out of a garage enabled using the low-level cryptographic protocols that underlie blockchain. He believes that the invention of the blockchain will have far reaching impacts across almost every imaginable industry, but the greatest of these, perhaps, is energy.
