The paper presents an overall view of the business model (BM) for the e-balance system for: balancing energy production and consumption in energy efficient, smart neighbourhoods (the e-balance project, FP7-SMARTCITIES-2013) along with its functionalities, based upon the Osterwalder’s canvas methodology. Additionally, this is the second, after two years of work, more incisive evaluation of the BM from the user’s and demo site’s perspective (Bronsbergen, the Netherlands). The aim of this paper is to present results and assess the above mentioned BM in the face its commercialisation and applicability to Europe.
