Real-time energy sharing
my energy community
Platform for Real-Time Solar Energy Communities in which real-time power flows and related electricity prices will be accessible to the end users.
What are energy communities?
In Clean Energy for all Europeans measures package, European Commission presented legal framework in which citizens are placed in the center of the energy transition. The role of community energy ownership is recognized in order to reach climate and energy goals. New definitions for Renewable Energy Community (REC) and Citizen Energy Community (CEC) are given in the Renewable Energy Directive II (RED II) and the Internal Electricity Market Directive (IEMD). With these supportive legal framework, citizens are strongly motivated to move from passive consumers to active participants in the energy transition.
Why to establish an energy community?
Energy community benefits
more affordable electricity prices
local energy production and consumption
renewable sources stimulation
reduced losses, costs and greenhouse gas emissions
increasing independence from the power grid
My Energy Community is R&D project created in 2022. and cofounded by Innovation Norway. Syntio Ltd. is project promotor and Grid ONE Ltd. is project partner.
Syntio is a data engineering company who finds it role in connecting data engineering, cloud technologies and innovation. Syntio does it by sharing knowledge and delivering solutions that enable companies to better understand their data, improve their business and digitally transform. Syntio was founded in 2017 in Zagreb, Croatia, with the aim of expanding its global footprint in cloud data engineering.
Grid One is an electrical engineering company focused on power systems and activities in the field of energy transition and renewable energy sources. It is a development and research hub of products and services for the needs of an advanced power grid. Although the company being a fairly young startup, it is rapidly finding its place in the market. With its knowledge and experience, Grid ONE contributes to the development and connection of research, engineering and local communities.
Key issue is the lack of information on real time power flows. Concrete actions for this problem involve development of the Smart Meter WIFI Reader for the metering data retrieval in real time, development of a prosumer management interface and the development of dynamic energy sharing models.
REC and CEC are defined as a legal entity whose participation is open and voluntary. The main goal is the environmental, economic and social welfare of the local community, not financial profit. The power delivered to the network is limited to 80% of the connected power. All members must be connected to the same MV/LV transformer station. The voting principle is one vote per one member. Members can sign a contract with different suppliers. The key for energy sharing is required by supplier, but it is not yet legally defined.
