WHAT IS THE INATBA AND GO-P2P ENERGY TASK FORCE?
Peer-2-peer (P2P) energy trading models have the potential to transform the energy grid. P2P energy trading can enable anyone to produce and sell energy to their peers, thus disrupting the traditionally centralised and heavily regulated energy sector. Facilitated by technologies such as blockchain, they are challenging policymakers across the world to regulate these models in a fair and technology-neutral manner through initiatives like regulatory sandboxes and updated standards.
This Task Force will study and compare international pilots of DLT-enabled P2P energy trading, as well as provide a forum for discussion and development of new standardisation recommendations. It will also represent an international platform for collaboration and information exchange between stakeholders from any sector (i.e. industry, academia, non-profits) working on these new energy trading models. This project is made possible thanks to UCL EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account support.
