We investigated the role of correlation effects in the formation of the spectral and magnetic properties of two-dimensional electride Ca2N. Using the combination of Density Functional Theory with Dynamical Mean-Field Theory (DFT+DMFT), we found that Coulomb interactions between the electrons of the electride states cause a strong renormalization and shift of the energy bands near the Fermi level. Besides, the electronic correlations lead to a competition between the Stoner-type ferromagnetic instability and the antiferromagnetic interactions of the localized moments. The observed patterns should be inherent to other isostructural electrides.
