The LECaaS project was approved by the Walloon government as part of the Pôle MécaTech's call 33. It aims to standardize tools for energy communities that can be deployed on a large scale, especially for residential or mixed industrial and residential communities.
The LECaaS project aims at removing the blocking points to the deployment of large-scale energy communities for end-users. To this end, it brings together multidisciplinary skills in community management as well as security and data processing.
The project aims to implement an open and interoperable solution that addresses these issues: Local Energy Communities as a Service (LECaaS).
Indeed, to set up a low voltage energy community, involving residential and/or industrial, multiple technical and communication skills are required.
The LECaaS project will provide an open and interoperable solution bringing together functionalities such as sizing, simulations, implementation, optimization and securing of community data in order to replicate the model at large scale to various users.
Currently, development solutions are aimed at industrial projects with a small number of players. They are often not adapted to residential and low voltage users.
We want to remove this problem to the development of energy communities in Europe.
The objective of the LECaaS project is to propose a digital "as a service" solution for the management, simulation and optimization of renewable energy communities, interoperable with other existing solutions.
