Transactive networks in the New Zealand retail context

Great innovation is being developed, helping people and businesses bypass many market barriers. For example, peer- to-peer energy trading, community energy platforms, smart home products and grid-assisted PV.

There is real value in the transactive grid, where every day people buy and share electricity with each other, dynamically changing behaviours to meet their personal goals.

However for this to be a success, everyone must be across the grid’s vision and value.
