New Book – Energy Communities

A new book co-edited by Dr. Sioshansi will be published this month.

In the power sector, distributed as well as renewable energy sources are gaining market share. Simultaneously, the role of the end customer is changing from passive “load” to be served to one of an active participant in the market. By producing, storing and managing energy on their premises, citizens can start to assume responsibility for balancing the energy system. Energy communities may be an important means to support this process. This book explores whether and how energy communities can be part of the solution, serving to integrate customers as active participants in future electricity markets.
