Project: BEYOND: Blockchain based ElectricitY trading for the integration Of National and Decentralized local markets

Acronym BEYOND (Reference Number: 91403)
Duration 01/04/2019 - 31/03/2022
Project Topic The project BEYOND is based on a local energy system approach with a strong focus on the participation of all stakeholders. To this end, BEYOND will demonstrate market designs for the integration of local 'smart grids' into centralized grids (transmission system). Blockchain technologies will open new paradigms to design costumer sized business models for the integration of local energy and flexibility markets based on Peer-to-Peer (P2P) and aggregated trading. Current and future market-regulatory frameworks to incentivize the local trading will be tested. A special focus lies on: the integration of distributed generation, the rules for local electricity prices, grid services, and the inclusion of digitalization tools to facilitate local trading in the integration to wholesale markets. To reach TRL 6-7, BEYOND will validate and demonstrate local market designs in four real-life pilots in three different countries._x000D_
