Blockchain-supported flexibility activation for distribution grid management.
Blockchain Grid is capable of revolutionizing the conventional approach to congestion management for distribution grids. The project demonstrates how to use remaining spare grid capacity (power, voltage bands) to the benefit of prosumers, rather than trying to solve pre-existing congestion situations. This approach is enabled by the high level of trusted automation that blockchain technology provides. Furthermore, the local generation surplus can be made available to other customers in the community or stored in the community battery for later use - with the goal of increasing the community's self-consumption.
