This project aims to facilitate the application of peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading technology for a newly built residential community in Corby, Northamptonshire.
  • DatesOngoing from 10 November 2019
  • SponsorHEIF support from Cranfield University
  • Funded£16,075
  • PartnersElectric Corby

Cranfield University has developed intensive knowledge and understanding of community energy systems and P2P energy trading. This includes the feasibility of P2P energy trading, market frameworks for local energy trading, control algorithms and financial benefits.

This knowledge and the results obtained from the project will be exchanged with Electric Corby when developing and implementing P2P energy trading in the town. Further research opportunities in digitalisation of community energy systems will emerge alongside this project.
