Pelka, S. (author)
The potential of households to adapt their energy use to the conditions of the energy system remains largely untapped due to shortcomings in consumer governance (i.e., the organization of household energy use). A lack of price signals and services leads to uncoordinated household energy use. Various proposals exist for updating consumer...

The EU Green Deal aims to ensure a socially just energy transition, but the shift towards renewable energies often replicates the centralized, top-down approach of traditional fossil fuel systems, negatively impacting rural areas. This report reimagines this paradigm by advocating for decentralized energy communities, particularly in regions...

Peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading and energy communities have garnered much attention over in recent years due to increasing investments in local energy generation and storage assets. Much research has been performed on the mechanisms and methodologies behind their implementation and realisation. However, the efficiency to be gained from P2P...

Renewable heating systems (RHS), such as solar thermal, geothermal, heat pumps, wood pellets, biomass, are essential to reduce dependence on fossil fuel-based heating systems and resulting CO<sub>2</sub> emissions. Despite their benefits in terms of CO<sub>2</sub> emissions, the widespread adoption of RHS has yet to be achieved. This paper...

The global shift towards sustainable and renewable energy sources is an undeniable necessity. Energy communities, grounded in principles of community participation and environmental sustainability, are emerging as key players in driving this transformation. Flanders, a region in Belgium, has witnessed the rise of energy communities as they take...

The Paris Agreement seeks to limit global temperature rise and achieve climate neutrality by 2050. The UN's Sustainable Development Goal 7 emphasizes sustainable energy access, with smart grids playing a crucial role. These grids adapt to user behavior and interconnect various components. While smart grids address challenges in integrating...

The transition from a centralized to a decentralized energy infrastructure is one of the most discussed features of the future energy system. With the fast growth of renewable energy technologies, which can be integrated in the built environment and in contexts like small production centers, the development of distributed energy generation and...

exploitative energy production to meet the demand (Our World in Data, 2021). The current energy system causes climate change, pollution, and pressure on space (Our World in Data, 2021) (Withagen, 1994) (KNMI, 2020)(NOS, 2017). The energy transition begins to take shape, companies are investing in large-scale wind farms at sea, and people are...

Critical challenges in energy transitions are social and cultural – not just technical and economic. This paper shares research in an interdisciplinary consortium developing an innovative smart energy system, and demonstrates the value of ethnography in supporting energy transitions and local energy communities. Our fieldwork illuminated...

Transition towards a carbon-neutral district energy community calls for carbon elimination and offsetting strategies, and phase change materials (PCMs) with substantial potential latent energy density can contribute significantly to carbon neutrality through both carbon-positive (like PCM-based thermal control in solar PVs) and carbon...

Energy communities play an important role in the energy transition to future clean and sustainable energy. The economic feasibility of an energy community is largely affected by its investment options: either a third party or households themselves can invest in distributed energy resources. Another common problem for energy communities is cost...

Fouladvand, J. (author)
This thesis aims to support the design and implementation of energy-secure thermal energy communities (TEC) by investigating their technical, behavioural and institutional settings through a collective action perspective. The thesis shows that energy-secure TEC initiatives are collective energy systems with particular characteristics and...

Energy Communities are initiatives ran by members of the same or different communities with the aim of producing, distributing and consuming cleaner energy. The potential of these initiatives, as identified from this clean energy production, to play a key role in the energy transition is assumed to be vital as recognized by the European...

Soni, Anmol (author)
Amidst the discourse regarding the decentralization of urban energy systems, energy community has emerged as a solution for optimizing the electricity demand and distributed generation. Community energy projects also facilitate collaboration amongst local prosumers. An energy community is a collective of residential electricity consumers (or...

With the emergence of energy communities, where a number of prosumers (consumers with their own energy generation) invest in shared renewable generation capacity and battery storage, the issue of fair allocation of benefits and costs has become increasingly important. The Shapley value, a solution concept in cooperative game theory initially...

Peer-to-peer trading and energy communities have garnered much attention over the last few years due to the wider spread of distributed energy resources. Much research has been performed on the mechanisms and methodologies behind their implementation and realisation. However, the efficiency and micro-structure of trading in such markets raise...

Energy communities are not yet fully self sufficient, mostly due to financial factors. Efforts are made to reduce these factors. Communities invest in community-owned assets, which provide more savings compared to individually-owned assets. Prosumers share their loads for better energy distribution, this can provide a significant impact. A good...

Renewable energy communities (RECs) might be an interesting new stakeholder in stimulating home energy‐saving efforts by tenants and homeowners due to their potential of raising awareness locally and gaining public support for low‐carbon energy and energy‐savings projects, because RECs are often locally sited, in close social proximity of...

The paper presents a coordinated day-ahead and intra-day approach for the scheduling of the resources in a local energy community (LEC). The considered LEC consists of a collective of power prosumers that can directly trade energy with each other in addition to the external provider. The scheduling approach is based on the alternating...

Energy communities are decentralized socio-technical systems where energy is jointly generated and distributed among a community of households locally. As the energy that is shared among the community is commonly electricity, the energy community's literature is dominated by electricity-systems and mostly neglects collective thermal energy as an...
