The intersection of Blockchain and the energy industry looks like a great place to be today. A technology that promises to bring order and automation in a distributed world could be the perfect match for a system (the energy system) and an industry (utilities) that are slowly but relentlessly decentralizing.

As part of GE’s Predix platform, Digital Inspection is developing as a key focus area for Predix’s product roadmap. As part of the focus, GE Digital is releasing Predictive Corrosion Management (PCM). PCM is as its name implies, a system to predicatively manage corrosion of pipes and vessels. In the Oil & Gas space, immense resources are spent planning inspections, manually conducting inspections, and trying to predict corrosive wear.
