In the energy sector, prosumers are typically houses with rooftop PV. With the drastically falling prices of PV panels, the number of installations is rising. Prosumers can have negative impacts, on power grids especially in the distribution grid. In order to mitigate this effect, and for the own benefit of the prosumers, they can function as groups sharing their resources. A literature overview is given focusing on studies that deal with this issue from the prosumer perspective, showing that many optimization studies focus on maximizing economical benefits and others on self-consumption or related indicators by means of energy management strategies and market models, most often hourly based. A case study is presented in the context of the current Danish net-metering scheme. The results show that savings for prosumers and increase of total self-consumption can be achieved by redistributing energy within the building cluster with rule-based control.
