How Fabric is being used in the blockchain carbon accounting lab and how to help out


David Boswell <dboswell@...>
 

The Climate Action and Accounting SIG has an active blockchain carbon accounting lab that is using Hyperledger Fabric to record emissions data, using energy data from utility bills and audited emissions factors from the EPA and EEA.  The code from the lab was recently used for a production system to track and offset emissions.

The group wrote a blog post that goes into more details about the project and shows screenshots and a video of the production system at:


The group is also looking for contributors and they've documented several good first issues that people can help with.  If you're interested in using Fabric for a climate change related use case, please consider helping out.  If you know of anyone who would be interested, please share the link above to the blog post or this link to the project's wiki:


Thanks,
David
