|Business Model Name
|Rewarding surplus energy by creating innovative marketplaces
|Business Model Description
|Plus energy neighborhoods will require new business models that reward surplus energy. For example, community-to-community (C2C) trading is potentially a new, unexplored idea that could become a new business case to obtain a market-based price for surplus energy (in contrast to feed-in tariffs). By introducing trading of surplus energy between communities (or smart neighborhoods), we can create new benefits . This can take advantage of surplus energy that would otherwise be curtailed (or feed-in at a non-market based price) by introducing other players with different load and generation profiles interested on the surplus of a neighborhood. This creates more competitiveness and increase the value of surplus energy in times of high production and low prices.
