Dissertation about the 'Sharing' of Energy


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am an undergraduate student at Newcastle University London and I am currently writing my dissertation about the peer-to-peer trading of energy (the concept of the sharing economy, e.g. Uber or Airbnb). I am exploring how willing energy producers are to sell/'share' their excess energy via digital platforms and what their motivations would be for that. It would be a great help and appreciated if you fill out my questionnaire which takes about three to five minutes.

This is the link to it: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/DYB39P8

Thank you for your time! 🙂

It's not a question of willingness, but is it not a moot point where you need a license to trade energy? It's just not legal for me to sell electricity to my neighbour.

You are right, and there are many more aspects to consider in this concept. However, studying more than one topic would be too much for an undergraduate paper which is why I only focus on participation.
