Peer 2 peer energy trading platform for European energy communities Workshop
Europe’s next generation of energy communities is becoming reality. Although local power generation by renewable sources is increasing, it has not yet had a real impact on radical decarbonisation of the energy sector. Changes need to be made by unlocking the potential of the prosumer with novel business models that can help organise & significantly boost renewable energy production & distribution at a local level in line with prosumer and community needs, through peer2peer (P2P) energy trading platforms and virtual power plants (VPPs) that enable and empower (local) energy communities. This workshop will bring together experiences and innovative approaches from EU-funded projects to better understand what is needed to empower energy communities.
