New Energy Business Models in the
Distribution Grid

The goals of NEMoGrid are:

  • To design and evaluate new business models favouring the grid-integration of decentralized energy resources
  • To encourage the active participation of citizens and the assumption of their new role of prosumers
  • To test the models in simulation and validate them in three pilot projects across Europe

Three Scenarios

To design and evaluate new business models we investigate:

  • Centralized utility management
  • Decentralized voltage/power based tariffs
  • Peer-to-peer market based on the Ethereum blockchain for energy transactions

Three Demo Sites

To evaluate our business models we venture out in:

  • Rolle, Switzerland
  • Björklinge, Sweden
  • Wüstenrot, Germany

Workpackages

The NEMoGrid project is organized within seven workpackges, five of them contain research work on: The definition of future scenarios (WP 1), the design of market and tariff models (WP 2),  the modelling framework (WP 3), the social acceptance of different market models (WP 4), and the scalability and replicability in the three different test sites (WP 5). The respective NEMoGrid partners who lead the workpackage are displayed in the figure on the left.
