We’ve achieved a lot since our last roadmap was shared with the community. While looking back is always a nice reminder of how far we’ve come, we know this is just the beginning for Power Ledger. With that said, here’s a little look forward.

Our mission is to democratize power. It’s a big mission. Given that internationally, in developed countries, $125billion dollars is spent in electricity markets annually. And in the developing world a further $116 billion dollars. It’s a big marketplace, one that we crucially want to get right.

To do this, we’re working tirelessly on the development of all our products, including Asset Germination Events (AGE), carbon credits and certificate trading (C6 and C6+) and virtual power plant (VPP 2.0). We’ll also continue to rollout our already-developed peer-to-peer solution (μGrid and xGrid) globally.

We’re creating a new marketplace, and as well as meeting with current and prospective clients daily, there’s a conversation happening with regulators. There’s been a great deal of progress in this area over the last year, with Australian energy regulators openly discussing peer-to-peer trading as one of the options for optimising the value of distributed energy resources (DERs), as we progress towards a distributed energy system.

Last month, our Managing Director Dave and Policy Analyst Sarah gave evidence to a WA parliamentary inquiry into microgrids and associated technologies. Here’s the transcript for those interested. This came straight after their trip to Melbourne in September where they presented to the Australian Energy Regulator on the benefits of P2P trading.
