The Observatory will operate under the framework of the Demand-Side Management Technology Collaboration Programme (DSM TCP). It will provide a platform for stakeholders across the world involved or interested in these innovative business models to exchange best practices and ultimately inform the development of policy and regulation at national and international levels. The bulk of the Observatory’s work will be driven by leading researchers in the field across countries including Australia, Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK and the United States.

Day 1 (2 September) of the launch event will consist of an International Symposium and include presentations by leading research teams from a range of countries including the UK, Netherlands, Italy, Australia and the United States, as well as presentations of peer-to-peer energy trading and community self-consumption trials at UK, European and International level. Day 2 (3 September) will consist of an internal meeting of confirmed and interested researchers from DSM TCP member countries. The focus of the day will be to introduce the Observatory to those that are interested in joining, and to discuss the programme of work for the coming six months.
