Cameron Scott

Technology and Public Policy 2021 Fellow

Profile

Cameron is currently Director of Service Capabilities at PUBLIC. He has spent the past 10 years working on technology and innovation projects across government policy, consulting and venture investing.

Cameron's project will explore how distributed technologies — blockchains, smart contracts and tokens — might enable our energy systems to be governed by both deep international collaboration and hyper-local optimisation. His aim is to establish how distributed exchanges for trading power and raising energy investment capital can encourage international coordination of new capacity investments and fairer trade in power, and hasten adoption of community-based models of generation and consumption to help meet our burning net-zero targets.

Fellowship project: Energy in Transition: Achieving Decentralisation with Distributed Technology
