Happy 2020

We hope you started well in 2020. As a summary of the latest results from 2019, we uploaded a detailed summary of our focus group results here. Within our focus groups we discussed the Peer-to-Peer scenario with pro- and consumers at two evenings. We asked our participants about their general impression of the scenario as well as their opinion about the usability of the designed platform. Futhermore, we brainstormed on gamification approaches for the Peer-to-Peer scenario. If you have any questions don´t hesitate to contact Maria or Susen from TU Chemnitz.

Merry Christmas

The last days of intensive work in 2019 are coming to an end. We participated in the ERA-Net Knowledge Community meetings dealing with Regulatory and Market Development as well as Consumer and Citizen Involvement and contributed to the Policy Briefs afterwards. The documents of the knowledge community are available on Expera platform, you can easily register for.  Furthermore, we analyzed our focus group data. A summary of the results will be posted here on the website at the beginning of next year. We wish you happy christmas holidays and a wonderful time with your family!

HAPPY Ending Focusgroups

This week, we held two focusgroups in Chemnitz and discussed the Peer-2-Peer scenario with pro- and consumers. We gathered their perspectives on the scenario in general and more specifically we collected feedback on the self-consumption-community user interface provided by HivePower. Furthermore, we specified possible gamification approaches with the help of the 18 invited people. Thanks a lot to those who invested two hours of valuable time in the evening and joined our focusgroups. We are now going to analyse all the answers and provide a short summary here on this website, soon.

Invited Talk @ TH Deggendorf

Yesterday (October the 9th 2019) Maria Kreußlein from TU Chemnitz gave a talk at the Technische Hochschule Deggendorf (THD) in Germany.  Maria was invited to the 4th Expert Symposium – Mobility of the Future to provide insights in the NEMoGrid user research. Her talk focused on the results of the last online survey. You can download the (german) slides here or in our publication section. We want to thank Katrin Juds from THD for her kind invitation and the successful organization of the symposium.

The new deal

Barbara Antonioli Mantegazzini from SUPSI published a paper which “aims to highlight the main key points of a sustainable business model at the basis of a peer-to-peer electricity market based on the blockchain technology, where function, roles and management schemes are clearly defined and accepted and multiple actors’ goal incorporated”. The contribution was presented in Belfast at the EGPA conference. You can find an authors version of Barbaras contribution in our publication section here on the website.
