Abstract:
This paper proposes a (conceptual) simulation framework for a collaborative management in power distribution grids. By combining insights from electrical engineering as well as sociology, this framework highlights the emergent, sociotechnical character of the energy system. The interplay of social and technical aspects is further emphasised by referring to the “energy traffic light” concept as an exemplary case of application.
