  author={Mohammad Chehreghani Bozchalui and R. Sharma},
  journal={2012 IEEE Power and Energy Society General Meeting},
This paper investigates the application of Electric Vehicles (EVs) as Mobile Energy Storage (MES) in commercial buildings. Thus, energy systems of a commercial building including its grid connection, Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), Energy Storage (ES), and demand profile are modeled. Based on the developed models, a Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) problem is formulated to optimize the operation of a commercial building microgrid (μθ) minimizing its daily energy costs and greenhouse…
