Abstract

In the near future, renewable energy communities will play a crucial role in the transition to a cleaner energy system and the reduction of carbon emissions in the electricity sector. In order to ensure a broad base of participation among consumer and producers (prosumers), it is necessary to develop new business models and governance tools for energy communities, and, in this context, blockchain technology may have several applications in the implementation and management of these communities. This paper proposes a decentralized autonomous organization model for renewable energy communities, which will enable a transactive energy scenario for the community governance process. In order to illustrate the usefulness of the methodology, an example of the proposed approach with a distributed organization process for an automated local energy market among community members is presented.
