EURIX has won the first place, in Italy, in the ranking drawn up by RSE S.p.A. for the implementation of pilot projects of Collective Self-consumption in Energy Communities. The proposal was the best of the 24 submitted.
The target of the project, called “Condomini Torino“, is to implement Collective Self-consumption in an Energy Community. The project aggregates about 50 apartments that virtually consume renewable energy, resulting from the installation of a photovoltaic system on the roof of a condominium in the center of Turin.
This is made possible by the introduction of highly innovative technologies, which offered by EURIX, as part of its EOS³ ENERGY MARKET solution. This is a set of products for the management and optimization of energy-financial transactions among prosumers in Energy Communities.
In particular, Artificial Intelligence algorithms are adopted to optimize the energy distribution in the Community. Moreover Blockchain infrastructure, based on Ethereum, is used for transaction reporting. The currency trading is the Token ENT EURIX Energy Token, specially coined for the market in the Energy Communities.
The collaboration with RSE has two further aims. On the one hand, it is proposed to identify possible regulatory and administrative obstacles of this intervention; on the other hand, it is intended to replicate this kind of self-consumption community also in other residential complexes and apartment buildings, in order to achieve significant energy savings and contribute to reducing pollution in cities.
Thanks to the first place, the EURIX project has been selected and illustrated in the Legambiente 2020 Report on Renewable Communities.
