P2P energy

“The new person-to-person electricity trend, which began in the Netherlands in 2013 and spread to the UK, is bringing the innovative concept to life.

The Amsterdam based Vandebron, which translates to “from the source,” provides a direct marketplace between local farms generating clean power and local homeowners and businesses looking for a  low cost, no fuss renewable energy source. (…)

UK startup Open Utility is attempting to pull off a similar program in a more complicated environment.

While Vandebron manages to cut utilities out of the equation entirely, Open Utility, which plans to launch its pilot program this summer will partner with a to-be-determined utility company to underwrite and facilitate energy transactions. Like Vandebron, Open Utility will pair energy consumers with local producers.”
