IEEE, Swiss Federal Office of Energy and IRENA support GO-P2P event on grid integration of peer-to-peer energy models



The third meeting of the Global Observatory on Peer-to-Peer, Community Self-Consumption and Transactive Energy Models (GO-P2P) took place on 15-16 September.  It was organised in collaboration with Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HSLU), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE). The event was run entirely virtually on Remo.

Day 1, which was open to all, focused on the challenges associated with integrating these new peer-to-peer energy models into electricity networks- including network impacts, the development of grid reflective prices, and the wider societal and regulatory impacts. It included interventions by IRENA (which officially supported the event), University of Sydney, University of Geneva, Tiko Energy Solutions AG, Cleantech21 and Virtual Global Systems AG. ~130 stakeholders from academia, industry and non-profits attended the event.

Day 2 was the internal meeting of GO-P2P. Sessions focused on the activities undertaken by University College London as its Operating Agent, as well as by GO-P2P’s sub-tasks.
