So please to let you know that our first paper on energy communities and blockchain is going to be presented of the 2018 Power System Computation Conference in Dublin (Ireland).
What is this paper about? Well, energy communities and peer-to-peer energy exchanges are expected to play an important role in the energy transition. In this context, the blockchain approach can be employed to foster this decentralized energy market. In this paper we design peer-to-peer energy exchanges based on a distributed ledger supported by the blockchain technology. Several designs are evaluated. The evaluations are based on criteria such as acceptance of the wholesale/retail market, the resilience of the consensus to approve a block, the accuracy, traceability, privacy and security of the proposed schemes
