A new Tesla 'shared Powerbank' launches as a community alternative to individual Powerwalls - Electrek
So, I wonder how this is wired up? Do they allow backflow of power from the solar installs in homes, and put the battery at the local feeder transformer to handle the locality aspect?

TransActive Grid | Secure, transactional control of utility systems
Using blockchain ledgers to facilitate energy credit microtransactions between local neighborhood power producers and consumers. Not entirely crazy, in the sense that you are offloading net metering payment ops to a consumer distributed system. Doesn't necessarily solve the problem of power distribution control information sharing in a net metering environment though.

Wind Turbine, Wind Energy, Wind Power, Save Energy – Optiwind
Company trying to do intermediate level wind turbines (AKA more than a home, maybe a neighborhood, maybe a community, probably less than a town). Uses a cylinder shape to achieve a venturi effect to locally accelerate the wind.
