An increasing number of private households are becoming producers of renewable energy. As a significant technical and financial outlay is required in order to store and/or transport such decentrally-generated energy over greater distances, it is beneficial from an economic perspective to utilize this energy both locally and promptly. However, this does require the ability to be able to deal with local excess production at short notice using, for example, an electronic trading platform. The objective of "PeerEnergyCloud" is to research and develop cloud-based technologies for such a platform.
