To tap into the potential of peer to peer energy sharing, homes and businesses will require advanced meters to track energy use then link it to blockchain technology to help buy, sell and trade excess energy.
Blockchain technology creates an online, decentralised ledger that autonomously and securely facilitates and records transactions. It’s what could help you securely and confidently buy energy from a complete stranger.
So it's really your decision on what to do with your excess energy…
Sell it to a neighbour who needs more energy for that pool pump? Why not?
Donate it to a local charity? That’s your call.
Keep it all to yourself? Sure.
With peer-to-peer energy sharing, you can take control of how you use your energy.
