Power Ledger is pleased to announce the appointment of Dante Disparte as a strategic advisor and ambassador for the Americas.
Mr. Disparte is an entrepreneur and global risk expert who founded Risk Cooperative, a coverholder at Lloyd’s, to respond to global protection and recovery gaps from risks, such as climate change, cyber threats, political risk and more. Power Ledger’s development of a decentralized renewable energy trading platform enables a wholesale redesign of resilient energy infrastructure, particularly for vulnerable, last-mile communities and their development and reconstruction efforts.
Following an unprecedented wave of natural and man-made disasters in 2017, including the devastation in the Caribbean and Puerto Rico, which has endured the second most severe blackout in history, the case for future-proofing the world’s energy matrix is urgent.
Mr. Disparte’s appointment will help spur the needed investments, policy changes and market expansion throughout the Americas to accelerate a wave of energy innovations, democratizing access to clean, resilient and renewable energy.
“Power Ledger has designed a scalable renewable energy platform leveraging blockchain to enhance trust, security and energy resilience to shocks,” said Dr. Jemma Green, Power Ledger’s co-founder and chair.
“We could think of no better ambassador for Power Ledger than Dante who has devoted his career, voice and mind to addressing risk, readiness and resilience. As the founder and chair of the Business Council for American Security with the non-partisan American Security Project, Dante is perfectly positioned to help Power Ledger improve energy security in the Americas,” Dr. Green continued.
