Economic interactions between users should be based on peer-to-peer-transactions that allow implementation of wide range of services that provide users with customized values. Within this paradigm the users can play various roles.
Simplicity of integration (plug and play) of power equipment into the loops of automated control of various services.
Sustainable and flexible
Physical connection of equipment units with the grid should be established in a convenient and user-friendly way using plug and play technologies to ensure static and dynamic stability of the system where large number of devices and equipment units influence each other.
