On today's show, my guest is Joe Dillion. Joe is the CEO and Founder of Adakon Energy Solutions, Adakon is focused on providing solutions to utilities, power generation, developers, and municipalities to help them manage or procure large flexible loads and generation for their stakeholders. Their focus is on bitcoin mining, where there areas of practice are site development to consulting utilities, to site optimization. Joe is coming to the show with not only decades of experience in the power and electricity industry but a deep past of bitcoin mining as well.

On todays show, Joe and I talk about legacy demand response and energy consumption control products that have been around for a long time and how bitcoin mining is disrupting that industry, four different products in a bitcoin mining facility that help optimize the total economic output of the operation, how legacy Fortune 500 companies such as Honeywell are starting to catch on to the benefits of bitcoin mining facilities as a tool for the grid, and we wrap up the conversation with Joe’s perspective on what each industry could do to have a better approach to their energy strategy. This was one of the more memorable conversations I have had on the show and the information that Joe shares in this episode will not disappoint.
