E-NEXT by Energie Steiermark, Austria
Peer-to-peer solar power trading
Partnership with a subsidiary of one of Austria’s top five largest energy utilities Energie Steiermark, to deploy a peer-to-peer energy trading network in Graz.
E-NEXT with the NEXT-Incubator, the innovation arm of Energie Steiermark, will make Power Ledger’s energy trading platform available to an initial 10 Graz households.
How the technology works
Power Ledger’s technology enables those with rooftop solar panels to sell excess renewable energy to their neighbors. As a blockchain-backed platform the project will ensure data is anonymous, complying with the European Union’s strict privacy requirements as outlined in the GDPR legislation.
Blockchain technology has the potential to disrupt a lot of markets – but as an innovation, we also think it offers new business opportunities and the chance to generate added value for our customers.E-NEXT project partner and innovation manager Mathias Schaffer
