Grid Singularity


The Context

The Process




In collaboration with Bündnis Bürgerenergie e.V. (BBEn), Grid Singularity conducted a study, using its open source energy exchange simulation tool and the dataset provided by the EWS Elektrizitätswerke Schönau eG, to assess the feasibility of local energy markets in Germany, reducing overall grid usage while maximising economic and social benefits of distributed renewable resources for citizens. This article, co-authored by BBEn and Grid Singularity, presents the study approach and the main findings.
