GENTE aims to develop a distributed governance toolbox for local energy communities (LECs). The toolbox exploits advanced digital technologies including the internet of things (IoT), distributed ledger technology (DLT), edge processing and artificial intelligence (AI) for autonomous energy resource management within and across LECs and for flexibility provisions to energy networks. GENTE brings intelligence to distributed energy assets considering users’ behaviours, data privacy and interoperability.
The toolbox empowers LECs with a decision support tool and innovative services that will enhance the economic viability of LECs and promote engagements of end-users and self-governance. Need-owners, including technology providers, building owners and system operators will evaluate performances of GENTE’s solutions in 6 demos in 3 countries. GENTE accelerates adoptions of new LECs capable of managing high share of renewables with improved energy efficiency and environmental performance.
