Peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading has emerged as a next-generation energy-management mechanism for the smart grid that enables each prosumer (i.e., an energy consumer who also produces electricity) of the network to participate in energy trading with other prosumers and the grid. [] Key Method Various game- and auction-theoretic approaches are discussed by following a systematic classification to provide information on the importance of game theory for smart energy research. This article also focuses on the…

A Motivational Game-Theoretic Approach for Peer-to-Peer Energy Trading in the Smart Grid

Energy Management and Peer-to-peer Trading in Future Smart Grids: A Distributed Game-Theoretic Approach

This work designs a fully-scalable algorithm to steer the system to a generalized Nash equilibrium (GNE) and shows through numerical studies that the proposed methodology has the potential to ensure safe and efficient operation of the power grid.

Grid Influenced Peer-to-Peer Energy Trading

It is shown that the game has a unique and stable Stackelberg equilibrium, as a result of the stability of prosumers’ coalitions, and an algorithm is proposed that enables the centralized power system and the prosumers to reach the equilibrium solution.

Optimal Network Charge for Peer-to-Peer Energy Trading: A Grid Perspective

—Peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading is a promising market scheme to accommodate the increasing distributed energy resources (DERs). However, how P2P to be integrated into the existing power systems

Peer-to-Peer Energy Trading With Sustainable User Participation: A Game Theoretic Approach

It is shown that the outcomes of the proposed P2P energy trading scheme satisfy the discussed models and it is proven that the proposed scheme is consumer-centric and has the potential to corroborate sustainable prosumer participation in P2p energy trading.

Pricing in Peer-to-Peer Energy Trading Using Distributed Optimization Approach

This paper proposes a novel privacy preserving pricing mechanism for P2P energy trading in a community microgrid with prosumer and consumer households using an alternating direction method of multiplier (ADMM) based distributed approach to determine the energy price.

Energy Peer-to-Peer Trading in Virtual Microgrids in Smart Grids: A Game-Theoretic Approach

Under Stackelberg equilibrium (SE), the costs incurred by a consumer for procuring either the RES or nRES are significantly reduced while the derived utility by producer is maximized and the CO2 emission cost and consequently the energy cost are minimized.

Peer-to-Peer Energy Trading in a Prosumer-Based Community Microgrid: A Game-Theoretic Model

Simulation results show the convergence of the algorithms and the effectiveness of the proposed model to handle P2P energy trading, and it is emerging as an alternative to cost-intensive energy storage systems.

Peer-to-Peer Trading in Electricity Networks: An Overview

This article provides an overview of the key features of peer-to-peer trading and its benefits of relevance to the grid and prosumers, and systematically classify the existing research in terms of the challenges that the studies address in the virtual and the physical layers.



A Game-Theoretic Approach to Energy Trading in the Smart Grid

In this paper, the interactions and energy trading decisions of a number of geographically distributed storage units are studied using a novel framework based on game theory, and a novel algorithm that is guaranteed to reach an equilibrium point is proposed.

Price Discrimination for Energy Trading in Smart Grid: A Game Theoretic Approach

A cake cutting game is investigated, in which participating EUs in a smart community decide on the price per unit of energy to charge a shared facility controller in order to sell surplus energy, and it is shown that the game possesses a socially optimal, and hence also Pareto optimal, solution.

Game-theoretic energy trading network topology control for electric vehicles in mobile smart grid

This study proposes that a PHEV may obtain energy from any of the available micro-grids within a coalition instantaneously without paying higher price, and shows that the proposed scheme, ENTRANT, has generalised Nash equilibrium, which is also socially optimal.

Peer-to-peer energy trading in a community microgrid

Peer-to-Peer (P2P) energy trading describes flexible energy trades between peers, where the excess energy from many small-scale Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) is traded among local customers.

Direct Electricity Trading in Smart Grid: A Coalitional Game Analysis

The asymptotic Shapley value is shown to be in the core of the coalitional game such that no group of SESs and EUs has an incentive to abandon the coalition, which implies the stable operation of DT for the proposed pricing scheme.

A noncooperative game for double auction-based energy trading between PHEVs and distribution grids

The complex decision making processes of a number of PHEV groups seeking to sell part of their stored energy in a power market are studied using noncooperative games and double auctions using a strategy-proof double auction.

Designing microgrid energy markets : A case study : The Brooklyn

Generation from distributed renewable energy sources is constantly increasing. Due to its volatility, the integration of this non-controllable generation poses severe challenges to the current energy

Optimal Pricing and Energy Scheduling for Hybrid Energy Trading Market in Future Smart Grid

The respective benefits of the energy consumers and the sellers from the local trading are quantified and how they can optimize their benefits by controlling their energy scheduling in response to the LTC's pricing is investigated.

Peer to Peer Energy Trading with Electric Vehicles

A novel peer-to-peer energy trading system between two sets of electric vehicles, which significantly reduces the impact of the charging process on the power system during business hours and is also economically beneficial for all the users involved in the trading process.
