Research Output per year
The project focuses on:
1) Design & establishment of 3 cVPPs in The Netherlands, Belgium and Ireland
2) Development of a Mobilisation & Replication (MoRe) model, which will serve as a guiding framework for setting up community-based virtual power plants in other areas
3) Replication process in at least 9 new areas
The concept offers a community the opportunity to provide its energy needs with small-scale, distributed low-carbon technologies with participation from individual consumers, local energy companies or SMEs. It can empower prosumers and contribute to the democratisation of energy markets. This process spurs awareness and public engagement in the energy transition. By doing so, it facilitates upscaling of low-carbon energy community-driven initiatives that have, so far, missed critical mass to trigger the energy transition.
