Technological and Infrastructural Readiness

The technological and infrastructural readiness to enable P2P energy trading within an energy community requires transcending the equipment typically available at the dwelling level for a traditional consumer (i.e., loads consuming electricity). A P2P-ready energy community must have assets for electricity production, and possibly storage, as well as systems for smart metering to monitor each peer's action, devices enabling seamless communication between participants, and tools which allow the management and operation of all technological assets.
