The interaction between generators - grid - consumers is changing fundamentally. The old simple model in which the energy is directed into one and the financial flow is opposed gives way to a decentralized map. Consumers become energy producers - coupled with private storage solutions and multilateral connections form within the system. Peak loads can be absorbed via private storage solutions, P2X and e-mobility.
On this map, new options arise primarily at the intersections between sectors - generators - grid - consumers and prosumers.
With the EnBW Solar+ lighthouse project, an option in the area of decentralized energy supply and network expansion behind the local transformer will be brought to market maturity. A PV system in the house, a community of all solar+ customers and participation in the energy market form the core. Prosumers can analyze their electricity consumption and optimize their energy management individually, economically and ecologically, trade or give away the electricity and offer their electric vehicles as storage in the future.
With the tenant flow law, the way to the "shared economy" was cleared. The basis for this development is mutual trust among the owners of a PV system. Solutions based on blockchain technology enable individual use of electricity despite the shared concept. These systems must be designed and developed with the knowledge of the energy industry - this is the only way for customers to benefit meaningfully from them. Energy suppliers themselves can become part of a system brokered by Blockchain, for example, to operate large power plants with many shareholders.
In the B2C and B2B area, individual products can be developed, and financial services can be rethought utilizing intelligent data analysis. Products can be designed for citizen-financed energy and urban development projects at the municipal level and in conjunction with banks. The careful handling of data is essential. Current technological developments, such as asymmetric encryption and differential privacy, can be used.
Intuity researches the topics mentioned above and is looking forward to exchanging ideas with you.
