Customer participation in P2P trading : a German energy community case study

  • The generous feed-in tariffs (FiTs) introduced in Germany—which resulted in major growth in decentralized solar photovoltaic (PV) systems—will phase out in the coming years, making many of the existing distributed generation assets stranded. This challenge creates an opportunity for community-focused energy utilities, such as Elektrizitätswerke Schönau eG (EWS) based in Schönau, Germany, to try a new approach to assist its customers, makes the transition to a more sustainable future. This chapter describes how EWS is developing products and offering community-based solutions including peer-to-peer trading using automated platforms. Such innovative offering may lead to successful differentiation in a competitive and highly decentralized future.
