A newly released academic paper suggests that Bitcoin mining has the potential to help decarbonize energy grids if certain changes are made. The paper discusses the unique characteristics of mining that set it apart from other energy buyers and how it can provide additional income and ancillary services to renewable energy grids. While the impact of mining on grid management and renewable power generation is currently not large enough to affect the sector significantly, the paper suggests that this could change if the adoption of mining intensifies. The report concludes that further research is needed to explore the convergence of Bitcoin mining and renewable energy usage.
