【Abstract】The energy internet is the key platform for the realization of China’s energy revolution, block chain is expected to become the key supporting technology to promote the development of energy internet. A mechanism framework was proposed in this paper that block chain technology was used to realize distributed decision making and cooperative autonomous operation of energy internet system; the compatibility of block chain and energy internet was analyzed; the basic framework of energy internet which was supported by the energy block chain was proposed; the multi-module cooperative autonomous mode and control flow of the energy internet were designed and the operation optimization model of each module was built; finally, the key technologies of the development of the energy internet under block chain framework were put forward from the perspective of the block chain and the energy internet.
