Transactive Brooklyn Microgrid
P2P electricity sharing

The cooperative TransActive Grid set up a local solar energy grid that combines renewable energy with the sharing economy thanks to the blockchain. Energy prices are kept down by local production and lower distribution costs. Consumption is more secure and flexible, leading to fewer outages. Transactions between individuals are recorded in the blockchain for transparency and no need for an intermediary, or even an electricity supplier.

The score is 3
