The production of significant amounts of renewable energy in a decentralized manner within the energy market is involving broader audiences. Citizens participate more actively in the energy markets. However, this happens through the production of relatively small amounts of energy at individual and distributed production sites. This brings benefits to the grids and energy system, but also makes the system more complex to manage. Citizens' motivations for such production differ a lot from the traditional industry-scale energy production. User-and prosumer-originating incentives introduce new aspects for modelling the development, construction, and governance of renewable small-scale units for the energy system. Individual and value-based aspects have a stronger role in the willingness and ability to participate in the green transformation of the energy system and markets. This paper introduces the user-based modelling and analysis of the role of a smart town house, which can have an active role in the power grids and energy markets. When such multi-source energy houses become more common and house fleets are interconnected to power grids, those can have significant impact to the development of energy markets.
