ISES webinar: Smart P2P Solar Grids

ISES webinar: Renewable Transformation Challenge - The Energiewende 3.0 - Smart P2P Solar Grids.

Participation in this webinar is open and free for everyone: Register online.

Wed, Oct 25, 2017 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM CEST.

In August 2017, The International Solar Energy Society (ISES) and Elsevier, announced Dr. Sebastian Groh of ME SOLshare Ltd. as the winner of the inaugural Renewable Transformation Challenge.

Dr. Groh wins the award for the project The Energiewende 3.0 - Smart P2P Solar Grids. In short, a SOLshare grid is created when rural households or SMEs agree on setting up a “swarm network” that consists of existing and new solar home systems (SHSs) and storage devices and enables the interconnection of larger loads. ME SOLshare provides a peer-to-peer solar energy trading platform empowering individuals and SMEs to become solar entrepreneurs offering pay-as-you-go and cash-in-as-you-go electricity solutions to low-income households. ME SOLshare therefore has potential to play a crucial role in supporting rural development and providing a means of direct income to rural communities.

In this webinar, we will present the Renewable Transformation Challenge Award and share judging criteria and insights from Jury Members. Dr. Groh will then give a presentation on his winning entry. There will be time at the end of the webinar for a Q&A with the webinar audience.
