A case study for smart community energy adoption in North Wales

Community Energy

This presentation by Justin Mason is a case study on the drivers, opportunities and challenges from a technical, commercial and organisational perspective for adoption of a smart local energy system.  Smart local energy systems can enable communities to democratize the procurement and management of energy supply in their locality as opposed to reliance on traditional vertical grid utility to consumer supply arrangements by connecting local power generation with flexible local energy demand.  This case study focuses on an established community owned hydroelectric scheme in North Wales,  highlighting the design process and need to understand local community context as opposed to adopting a common solution.
