Abstract
It almost seems like a Zen-Buddhist approach to energy: everything will be connected to everything else. But this time not only in the cosmic sense of the word, but physically, for real. The Internet of Energy is designed to enable every device in the world to exchange energy with one another. 

We can change the world through our own decisions and actions. Everything -and every individual- can be reinvented. We need an inventor’s mindset more than an engineers’ or economist’s mindset to rebuild the world as we know it within one generation. Clean and renewable energy can and will be universally accessible, and exchanged by billions of users over an Internet of Energy soon. It all starts with your own dreams. It is up to us to turn these dreams into realities. And this is exactly what we can and will do, together.

In an inspiring talk full of realism, Arash will take you on a journey towards an understanding of the Internet of Energy and of its role in our near future.
