Users TCP GO-P2P Project: Global Observatory on Peer-to-Peer, Community Self-Consumption, and Transactive Energy Models

The Global Observatory (GO-P2P) is a forum for international collaboration to understand the policy, regulatory, social and technological conditions necessary to support the wider deployment of peer-to-peer (P2P), community/collective self-consumption (CSC) and transactive energy (TE) models. GO-P2P takes a multi-disciplinary approach to studying P2P/TE/CSC models and is structured into five sub-tasks, each led by leading institutions in the field. Participants, now more than 200, are from academiaindustry and non-profits. There has been a high level of collaboration between them so far.
