Pilot Eupen: Local Energy Market (RE Electricity and Heating

The objective is to build a local sustainable energy community. In East Belgium, Climate Cities and partners will create a local renewable energy market in which consumers and prosumers will be able to exchange self-produced solar power via the developed blockchain platform. Furthermore, the next step will involve heat consumers and heat producers. The low transaction costs of the blockchain technology should make it possible to sell their waste heat via the platform even to small businesses (retailers, laundries, etc.). Here the SME Courant d’air has committed itself as an associated partner.
