This transformation is in the direction of the citizens providing their own energy at the point where the energy is consumed instead of the huge central power plants. Citizens change their preferences in order to protect their living spaces, make them sustainable and strengthen their economic structures. Technological developments and related cost reductions have accelerated the realization of these preferences and made them widespread.

The simplest energy scenario of the near future; The citizen will charge his electric vehicle in his garden with the electricity he generates from the panels on the roof of his house and share the extra energy he produces with his neighbor.
