Rapid penetration of distributed generation technologies, combined with grid constraints, and disillusionment with non-consumer centric business models, is leading many to explore radically different configurations of the energy system. One such model, ‘transactive energy’, focuses on peer-to-peer energy trading with the role of the energy company replaced with a trustless transaction layer based on distributed ledger (blockchain) technologies. The proponents of transactive energy argue that it provides social, environmental, economic, and energy systems benefits.

This lecture will provide a broad introduction to the field, before discussing the opportunities and limitations of this approach within the energy transition.
