Full project title
Integration of Distributed Energy Resources Application
Description

IderApp is a software that provides a trading mechanism for the APP owner to buy green energy from small-scale producers. Integrating green energy and participating in the electricity markets has economic advantages for the APP owner and also for the green energy producers. The trading mechanism is based on Impartial transaction energy market clearing. Furthermore, introducing this platform to the market will encourage end-users to install small-scale renewable energy resources on their roofs.

II. DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT
Please provide a summary of your project

IderAPP is a software for integrating renewable energy resources which are distributed within a distribution grid. This APP provides a bi-directional offering system for end-users in electricity grids that are equipped with small-scale renewable resources. The IderAPP provides a platform for green energy and its performance is like Uber or Airbnb.  By installing this APP all green energy resources within a territory can be integrated and it can be sold to an upper-level grid. The mechanism for integrating renewable energy from small producers is based on the impartial peer-to-peer transaction. In this mechanism, the market price is regarded based on each peer's offer for selling. The price will be equal to or greater than their offer. From a technical point of view, the penetration level of green energy will be increased. A more specific result is about the investing of increasing for green energy. By introducing this platform, end-users will be eager to invest in green energy instead of distribution system operators or electric utilities. 
The platform gathers all offers for produced energy £/kWh and the p2p market will clear 2 hours before the trading moment. The main consumer of this APP can be private companies that are working on the integration of demand-side programs and also, distribution system operators. 

Please indicate the main themes of your project with 5 key words
Green Enengy Extension
Low investment on green energy by governments
Encourageing householders to use renewable energy resources
Extending buisiness model of green energy
Clean Enegy with more cash benefits
Please give information about the key objectives of your project in terms of sustainability (including circularity) and how these have been met.
Please highlight how the project can be exemplary in this context

This platform involves different stakeholders and can integrate energy from the bottom level of the electricity grid and distribute it within the grid. The traditional end-users of electricity that are able to produce electricity are requiring a platform to sell their green energy. On the other hand, for transition to net-zero goals, the governments need a framework to encourage end-users to invest in renewable energy. Something that our IderAPP is introducing is creating a business model for householders and grid operators.

Please give information about the key objectives of your project in terms of aesthetics and quality of experience beyond functionality and how these have been met.
Please highlight how the project can be exemplary in this context

To highlight the performance of the proposed IderAPP, two famous examples can be mentioned, Uber or Airbnb. These are applications that gather the source of a service and also its requirements. By matching the supply and demand, they are creating many job opportunities and low prices for good services. Here, IderAPP does something like these ones for extending renewable energy resources. IderAPP will result in low and fast investing in green energy by governments and people will focus on it simultaneously. Low carbon strategies within the Europe will be tackled and the business model will bring advantages for all users of IdelAPP.

Please give information about the key objectives of your project in terms of inclusion (equal opportunities, public participation, citizen engagement, co-design, universal design, accessibility, affordability, etc.) and how these have been met.
Please highlight how the project can be exemplary in this context

The IderAPP project will distribute business opportunities for all users that are installed PVs on their home's roof, equipped to storage systems and small-scale wind turbines. By installing this application, end-users will take benefit more than their cost and can sell their products. 

Please explain how these three dimensions have been combined in your project.
Please highlight how this approach can be exemplary

With our project, green energy development will be tackled faster than now. Because one of the main limiting factors is changed to a great opportunity. That factor is handling the business model. The business model is an equal opportunity between all end-users and everyone can take part in it. The pricing scheme in the application is based on an Impartial trading structure in which the sellers and the buyers will receive more than their offers. Finally, the project changes the interests of developing green energy from the governments to householders. This is the main factor for going faster towards zero-emission and clean green Europe.

Please give information on the results/impacts achieved by your project in relation to the category you apply for

Regarding the IderAPP, the energy service platform will be released only by installing it on cell phones and setting the measurements. Services are integrating Renewable energy resources, buying from small producers, and selling to grid operators. Furthermore, the crypto tokens will be considered to check the secure transactions and safety in trading.

Please explain how citizens and civil society were involved in the in the design and/or implementation of the project.
Please also explain the benefits that derived from their involvement.

The IderAPP uses engineers from different science such as IT, communication and crypto, and electrical engineering. For designing the application and developing functions programming engineers are integrated.

Please explain what kind of global challenges the project addressed by providing local solutions

With respect to developing green energy, the global challenge is about investment. For renewable energy, governments should invest initially and consider many policies. In the end, the important part of a community that must participate is end-users. The lack of a business model was a major challenge for end-users to change their own lifestyles towards green energy. The IderAPP potential creates this opportunity for householders and end-users to take part in changing their own lifestyle and investing in renewable energy resources.

Please highlight the innovative character of the project as compared to mainstream practices in the field of the project.

Green Energy as a Service by some householders to grid operators,

The integrated energy from the bottom level of electricity grid increases the efficiency of energy

Business model of IderAPP changes the motivation of householders and lifestyles

Please explain to the potential of transferring the projects’ results or learnings to other interested parties and contexts.
Please provide clear documentation, communication of methodology and principles in this context.

Regarding this query, please follow the paper that I have published in a peer-reviewed IEEE Systems Journal.

 

The results and innovation of this project will be:
- Introducing the virtual production as an available source of energy
- Security in communication between peers and APP

- Market clearing and contract setting with householders
