The BSES Rajdhani
Power Limited (
BRPL), one of the
power distribution companies here, will
launch a block-chain based platform on
trial basis
for consumer-
to-consumer (or peer-
to-peer)
solar
power
trading.

The method can be used by
consumers with rooftop
solar
power infrastructure
to further monetise their investment.
Consumers with rooftop
solar infrastructure can sell their excess
solar energy
to their neighbours even if they do not have rooftop
solar, said the BSES spokesperson.

The BSES Rajdhani
Power Limited (
BRPL) has partnered with Australia’s
Power Ledger, a global player in the block-chain technology,
to
launch the consumer-
to-consumer
solar
power
trading on a
trial basis, a BSES spokesperson said.

“The pilot project will initially be carried out
among a select group of gated community
solar
consumers in Dwarka who generate around 5-6 MW of
solar
power,” he said.

The
BRPL has become the first
discom in the country
to use
Power Ledger’s block chain-based platform
for peer-
to-peer (P2P)
solar
trading, he claimed.

BRPL CEO Amal Sinha said the
trial with
Power Ledger will help BSES fully utilise clean energy.

Based on the outcome of the pilot project, the BSES and
Power Ledger will expand the
trial
to include block chain enabled solutions
for group net metering, virtual net metering, electric vehicle charging and virtual
power plant applications, he added.

The
consumers require no hardware device or investment
to sign up
to the
Power Ledger platform. The technology utilises close
to real-time data from smart meteres
to facilitate peer-
to-peer
trading.
