When: Wednesday, 2 October 2019, 14:00 - 15:30
Blockchain and automated agents are buzzwords that follow any discussion about the future of peer to peer renewable energy trading. All of these terms need a proper discussion, yet the most important question remains: How far are we from the implementation of the world’s first Peer-To-Peer renewable energy procurement deal?
Trading renewable energy from Peer-to-Peer has huge potential to stabilise prices on the energy market. But, is this scenario feasible?
This session would revolve around the successful implementation of this energy procurement model. It will focus on the following questions:
- What is the current status of the application of Peer-to-Peer renewable energy procurement?
- What are the main challenges preventing implementation of this model?
- What are the possible solutions to push its uptake further?
- And to what extent can technology enable real life application of this model?
