Reading time: 1 minute

CREDS researchers ran workshops at the Energy & Society conference in Exeter and the Behave conference in Zurich, both in early September 2018 about this project. Notes and slides from the sessions are available here.

As part of early engagement around CREDS project Distributed ledger technologies (DLTs) as a disrupter of retail markets, we ran workshops at the Energy & Society conference in Exeter and the Behave conference in Zurich, both in early September 2018. The first focused on grid defection or the idea that distributed generation and peer-to-peer trading could allow people to become less reliant (or disconnect from) central energy networks. The second looked at whether genuine social benefits could be realised through peer-to-peer trading. Both workshops prompted lively discussion and raised interesting question.
