The project is a digital product to show how consumers can share self-produced photovoltaic energy with family and friends.
The “Peer-to-Peer Trading” project is a digital offer from the “Energie AG Upper Austria” (energy supplier) and its innovation unit „Wertstatt 8“ to allow consumers to share self-produced photovoltaic energy with family and friends. Consumers can decide to whom they want to give their excess energy and from whom they want to obtain the additionally required energy.
On top of that, photovoltaics energy producing consumers can choose to donate the energy to listed social organization and NPOs. This should boost people’s awareness of energy and strengthen the connection with the region.
Furthermore, through this project citizens will be encouraged to invest in renewable energy.
