This study analyses local coordination mechanisms from an economic perspective. For this purpose, the advantages and disadvantages of local coordination are presented. The benefits of local coordination are discussed for two selected aspects based on existing literature – these include supplying demand for locally generated energy in connection with additional willingness to pay for locally generated electricity and avoiding the expansion of the distribution grid through usage of flexibility. Furthermore, selected regulatory aspects that represent an obstacle to implementation are highlighted.
