The project aims to deliver a comprehensive set of results to advance the energy landscape. 

Expected Outcomes

  • A Social Science Framework complemented by innovative multi-dimensional incentives to encourage energy citizens’ participation in a consumer-centric energy and demand response market.
  • AI-based consumers clustering and market segmentation algorithms enhancing understanding and engagement.
  • An interactive decision support tool and facilitation services, for consumer activation and energy community planning.
  • The establishment of an Energy Data Space compliant digital backbone for consumer and community-level data-driven activation, interoperable DR, and privacy-preserving federated learning.
  • A peer-to-peer digital marketplace for tokenized energy and non-energy assets evaluation and reciprocal compensation.
  • Data-driven services and apps for energy efficiency and activation performance management, optimizing consumer activation at both the local community and aggregated levels.
  • Edge monitoring hubs that will automate demand response management, contributing to grid operation and active participation in electricity markets.
  • A Business Sandbox to explore novel sharing economy and social innovation-based business models.
  • Methodologies and guidelines for the setup, upscaling, and replication of energy communities, ensuring a holistic approach to community-centric energy initiatives.



  • 13-15% cost reduction in the energy bill for activated energy consumers.
  • 15% increased energy efficiency.


  • Harmonise and extend existing automation-oriented standards (e.g. Family if IEC standards), business DR standards (OpenADR2.0), ontologies (SAREF), and languages (EFI).
  • 45% increased energy data sharing by active consumers after 5 years.
  • 10 new data-driven services to facilitate consumer activation and market participation.


  • 30-35 energy communities created, set up, and/or upscaled/replicated after five years from the project starting date.
  • >1500 consumers engaged and >1000 consumers activated.
  • 40% average yearly increase of the share of consumers energy market participation via energy communities.
  • > 500 active consumers engaged in automated DR.
  • 15-20% carbon emission reduction in the areas of the 6 pilots due to increased decentralised management of energy infrastructures.
