Power and energy systems are undergoing unprecedented change driven by many factors like global warming, digitalization, new sorts of renewable energy sources (RESs). Many countries incentivize the installation of RESs with subsidies and programs like a high rate of feed-in tariffs. However, these promotions are not sustainable. Some countries started to decrease the feed-in tariffs due to the cost of RESs are in decline. Since they want to reduce the volatility risk of small-scale RESs, they… Expand
Optimising Demand and Bid Matching in a Peer-to-Peer Energy Trading Model
The main improvements revealed are significant economic benefits for the community and prosumers, i.e., a lower exchange of electricity with the utility grid by increasing the self-consumption in the community, and a reduction of peak demand hours due to local energy trading. Expand
How Can Blockchain Technology Accelerate Energy Efficiency Interventions? A Use Case Comparison
Analysis of the application of blockchain technology for three different approaches to achieving energy efficiency shows that blockchain functions are case dependent and that an application creates different governance and system designs due to varying case characteristics. Expand
Research on Enterprise DNS Security Scheme Based on Blockchain Technology
An enterprise-level DNS service scheme based on blockchain technology, formed by installing the blockchain service (Ethereum) on multiple servers, which can effectively solve the problem of single point of failure and decompose the attack traffic through load balancing algorithm. Expand


Review of Existing Peer-to-Peer Energy Trading Projects
Peer-to-Peer (P2P) energy trading is a novel paradigm of power system operation, where people can generate their own energy from Renewable Energy Sources (RESs) in dwellings, offices and factories,Expand

A Novel Electricity Transaction Mode of Microgrids Based on Blockchain and Continuous Double Auction
The installed capacity of distributed generation (DG) based on renewable energy sources has increased continuously in power systems, and its market-oriented transaction is imperative. However,Expand
Aggregated battery control for peer-to-peer energy sharing in a community Microgrid with PV battery systems
This work investigated a peer-to-peer energy sharing method, allowing the surplus DERs to be shared between prosumers in a neighbourhood, and showed that P2P energy sharing is able to reduce the energy cost of the community by 30%, compared to P2G trading. Expand
Renewable energy cooperatives as gatekeepers or facilitators? Recent developments in Germany and a multidisciplinary research agenda
The transformation of energy systems is influencing economic policy agendas all over the world, particularly in industrialized countries. In this process, Germany has taken a pioneering role, andExpand
Peer-to-peer based energy trading system for heterogeneous small-scale DERs
This paper comes up with functional requirements and service scenarios for designing and implementing a P2P energy trading system that facilitates coordination among energy producers (DERs) and consumers, and implements an energy information and communication standard model, allowing energy trading information sharing among the energy producers and consumers.

Renewable Energy Cooperatives: A Review of Demonstrated Impacts and Limitations
Energy sectors of most industrialized countries are marked by a long history of state and corporate-owned and highly centralized energy generation (mostly from fossil-based sources) and distribution.Expand
Wind energy allocation strategies for long-term contracts in open energy markets
Electricity deregulation and the increase of renewable energy penetration are playing an important role in developed countries. In this work, a study of the decision-making process of energy tradersExpand
Peer-to-peer energy trading in a community microgrid
Peer-to-Peer (P2P) energy trading describes flexible energy trades between peers, where the excess energy from many small-scale Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) is traded among local customers.Expand
What drives the development of community energy in Europe? The case of wind power cooperatives
The dominant model of energy infrastructure has historically been conceived in a very centralized fashion, i.e., with hardly any citizen involvement in energy generation. Yet, increasing attention isExpand
