Building local economic resilience though democratic local energy models

February 28, 2018

When the energy supply chain is localised, local jobs can be created, energy spend can be kept in the local economy and community benefit funds can be created and reinvested locally to reduce community vulnerability and to create a more resilient financial system. However, changes in national support for renewable energy projects have made it very difficult for community energy groups to deliver projects. This project has researched, developed and shared practical new business models for community energy groups to provide them with the support that they need to adapt to the changes in government policy.

At the same time, both states have increased their ambition to transition to low-emissions sources of energy, including increased ambition on renewable energy generation and energy efficiency. As a result, the programmes in New York and California have evolved to value the wider system benefits of energy efficiency, as described below.

Smart Consumers in the Internet of Energy: Flexibility Markets & Services from Distributed Energy Resources

whitePaper | November 28, 2019

In light of new EU market rules adopted as part of the Clean Energy Package, responsive and energy-efficient consumers are likely to play a crucial role in the challenging transition to a low carbon energy system. This is especially true for smart consumers who have access to distributed energy resources (DER) assets, such as demand response, solar photovoltaics, storage, electric vehicles and heating appliances. With the ‘internet of energy’, interconnected smart consumers can trade on both sides of the market, either directly or through an intermediary such as an energy service provider, an aggregator or an energy community.
