What are transactive energy systems? What are their benefits or challenges? When is it the right time to prepare for transactive energy, and what are your next steps?



During this tutorial we will answer these questions and more by exploring how the changes in the electric grid that have created opportunities for transactive energy. By combining lessons from the GridWise Architecture Council’s (GWAC) Transactive Energy Framework, Decision Maker’s Checklist, and Transactive Energy Roadmap, the tutorial will discuss how transactive energy is developing and where it’s headed.




Topics covered include:


  • Background on Transactive Energy: We’ll explore the drivers behind transactive energy, including the structural and societal impacts associated with producing energy from renewable sources, and how transactive energy fits into this picture.


  • Evolution of the Landscape: The tutorial will discuss the three stages of evolution and steps to prepare for a transactive energy future.


  • Applying Transactive Energy: We’ll analyze opportunities including propositions for transactive energy in the areas of energy management and building automation, smart cities, and smart building applications.
