HORIZON-CL5-2023-D3-03-05 : open-source peer-to-peer energy sharing platform

Creation of a standardised and open-source peer-to-peer energy sharing platform architecture for the energy sector

The activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Defining the core operations that a flexibility and peer-to-peer trading platform should execute in order to:
    • Guarantee optimal valorisation and integration of DER (such as solar panels, batteries and electric vehicles, but also demand-response and flexible heat pumps and heater considered as a resource) within the electricity network.
    • Take into account network constraints, including through the use of price signals to foster flexibility.
    • Meet the local consumers’ needs and characteristics.
  • Developing an AI-based software that uses machine learning processes to integrate core operations and local grid constraints (including when channelled through price signals) in order to adapt to variations and changes in grid conditions.
  • Testing and simulation cases for blockchain-based trading operations following an agile methodology with the objective to get a fully functional trading tool within the project lifetime. The design of the platform should reflect the multi-actor, open-ended nature of decentralised use of energy. Proposals should account for a complex system change process, and prescribe evolutionary pathways for the platforms, account for their socio-technical interdependencies, and define and validate feasible entry points.
  • Developing field studies in citizen energy communities / renewable energy communities to integrate bottom-up approaches.
  • Setting rules for using the tool
  • Involving energy cooperatives or citizen energy communities (see Article 16 of the Commission’s Directive 2019/944 on common rules for the internal market for electricity (IEMD)) / renewable energy communities (see Article 22 of the Commission’s Directive 2018/2001 on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources (RED II)) in each selected project and ensure that the final ownership of these tools can remain in community hands, and that they are available for reuse (a particular consideration will be taken with respect to data security and potential related restrictions thereof).
  • Developing an open, available and operational platform to strengthen business models, and define which these business models are.
  • Exploring and comparing advantages / disadvantages of existing and new market making methods (Order Book-based systems and Liquidity pool-based Automated Market Makers) for a peer-to-peer energy exchange.
  • The project should be developed by taking into account both a technology performance perspective and a long-term sustainability roadmap.

The developed solutions should be freely available to citizens, energy cooperatives and citizen/renewable energy communities.

Solutions should be developed and made available as Open-Source solutions, while making sure that contributors are recognised and fairly compensated, respecting well defined rules and within a network of trusted data, which guarantees security and sovereignty of data and services.
