Trading of rooftop solar energy (Sharing Energy)

Sharing Energy, a provider of solar installations and equipment, will use Power Ledger's platform to facilitate peer-to-peer electricity trading using across the meter using existing smart meters. The trial will initially comprise 100 households.

Project summary

The project is expected to grow from 100 rooftops to over 55,000 rooftops by the end of 2020, with plans to sell to consumers via interested third parties or following Sharing Energy’s procurement of a retail licence.

How the technology works

Power Ledger will initially provide near real-time usage data to Sharing Energy, and from November onwards Sharing Energy will use Power Ledger’s peer-to-peer platform to facilitate electricity trading between sellers and buyers using real-time data from existing smart meters.

Sharing Energy President Emiko Koga
