June 2019, paper on transactive oriented grid architecture is a proactive approach to engage city planning efforts in order to align the enabling structure of a distributed energy ecosystem. The future architecture of transactive distributed power systems will be influenced by continued population migration to cities and the expanding global use of transit-oriented development (TOD). In TOD, the confluence of housing and commerce form economic hubs within metro centers. Similarly, distributed energy systems in these commercial and residential buildings and expansion of electrification will create opportunities to develop transactive energy hubs that power these urban/suburban economic hubs. However, to enable the development of these transactive energy hubs, it is necessary to consider structural changes in the architectural of urban distribution systems and the “customer to distribution” operational coordination necessary to align with TOD.
