Our upcoming paper published in the May edition of the International Journal of Electrical Power & Energy Systems, in collaboration with the Monash Energy Institute, makes the case for for peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading in a decentralised grid. The paper particularly explores the issues of trust and privacy in blockchain-based energy trading. It proposes methods to incentivise nearby houses to anonymously trade energy to reduce the grid transmission costs, without having to reveal their identity.
A separate news article at Industry Update was published on the paper.
