P2P-SmarTest presented its' novel P2P approach for Smart Grids in ISGT Europe 2016 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Next generation microgrids will require a decentralised approach, in addition to or replacing centralised coordination. Peer-to-peer technology provides interesting opportunities for this, from the level of trading and business models, all the way down to control approaches and communication technology. The European H2020 project P2P-SmartTest (LCE-2014-3, http://www.p2psmartest-h2020.eu/) employs peer-to-peer approaches to ensure the integration of demand side flexibility and the optimum operation of distributed energy resources within the smart distribution network while maintaining second-to-second power balance and the quality and security of the supply. It investigates and demonstrates how a smarter electricity distribution system emerges with innovative business models.
At the ISGT 2016 conference (http://sites.ieee.org/isgt-europe-2016/), a dedicated session on the initial results of this exciting project was held and attracted a great audience.
