On 15 September 2020, Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, in collaboration with the IEEE Power and Energy Society and the Swiss Federal Office of Energy, is hosting the next meeting of the Global Observatory on Peer-to-Peer, Community Self Consumption and Transactive Energy models (GO-P2P). This event will be held online.
Decarbonisation, decentralisation and digitalisation are reshaping the way electricity is produced, traded and consumed.
New energy models are emerging around the world. Electricity consumers may produce, individually or collectively, the energy they consume and trade surplus with their peers. Opportunities like this represent a major change from the old world where consumers were passive users of the electricity system. This creates new challenges and opportunities for electricity networks.
In this online event, open to all, leading speakers will discuss the challenges associated with integrating these new models into electricity networks, including network impacts, the development of grid reflective prices, and the wider societal and regulatory impacts. The event will include interactive panel sessions and technical presentations from technology developers, system operators, pilot projects and academics. It will also include online networking.
Further information will be provided during July: register to receive further updates. Registration is strongly advised as places will be limited.
Launched in September 2019, the Global Observatory is a three-year collaborative research project led by UCL under the User-Centred Energy Systems Technical Collaboration Programme by the International Energy Agency (IEA). It represents a forum for international collaboration to understand the policy, regulatory, social and technological conditions necessary to support the wider deployment of peer-to-peer, community self-consumption and transactive energy models.
