Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper proposes a Transactive Energy Market (TEM) platform for Peer-to-Peer (P2P) energy trading among prosumers and consumers in the Transactive environment. Prosumers with excess energy participate in the market as seller and consumers play a buyer role and communicate with each other to maximize their welfare, which is the difference between...

Full-text available
Massive deployment of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) along with innovations in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have changed the power system from a hierarchical structure to a more deregulated model by introducing new generations at lower levels. This change raises operational and market challenges such that existing incentive...
Article
Full-text available
Increase in the deployment of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) has triggered a new trend to redesign electricity markets as consumer-centric markets relying on Peer-to-Peer (P2P) approaches. In the P2P markets, players can directly negotiate under bilateral energy trading to match demand and supply. The trading scheme should be designed adequate...

Full-text available
This study proposes a hybrid energy trading scheme for peer‐to‐peer (P2P) energy trading in transactive energy markets. Market players can participate in different markets, including local markets, trading with neighbourhood areas, and traditional trading with the grid. In each local market, a community manager (CM) facilitates energy trading and n...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper proposes a market clearing mechanism for energy trading in a local transactive market, where each player can participate in the market as seller or buyer and tries to maximize its welfare individually. Market players send their demand and supply to a local data center, where clearing price is determined to balance demand and supply. The...

The increasing integration of distributed energy resources (DERs) has provided the opportunity to deliver clean, and low-cost power for energy consumers. However, without appropriate coordination, injected power by DERs can violate the operational limits of the electricity distribution networks and cause issues such as over-voltage and lines conges...
Article
As the owners of distributed energy resources (DER), prosumers can actively manage their power supply and consumption and partake in new energy services. In order to enable prosumers to benefit from their participation in energy services, innovative market models need to be designed. This paper proposes a framework for local energy and flexibility...

Article
Prosumers play a central role in current distribution networks. Local markets provide an environment for prosumers to interact with each other, either directly through peer-to-peer (P2P) markets, or indirectly via community-based markets. In this paper, we propose a hierarchical approach for local energy and flexibility trading among prosumers in d...
Article
Peer-to-peer energy trading is an emerging concept for implementing power markets with a large number of distributed energy resources. The success of such trading depends on the participation of lots of prosumers. Therefore, the trading scheme should motivate peers to participate in the market through fair pricing while guaranteeing their privacy....

This paper presents a scalable mechanism for peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading among prosumers in a smart grid. In the proposed mechanism, prosumers engage in a non-mediated negotiation with their peers to reach an agreement on the price and quantity of energy to be exchanged. Instead of concurrent bilateral negotiation between all peers with high...

How a cost/utility function of prosumer/consumer can be modeled in the electricity market? I know that quadratic functions are being used in several research, but how it can be justified that these quadratic functions are the appropriate model?

The deployment of distributed energy resources (DERs) and renewable energy resources in electrical grids is significantly increasing throughout the world. Influenced by the increasing penetration of “behind-the-meter” DERs, power systems are experiencing a paradigm shift from a centralized structure to a decentralized one. DERs encompass a range of consumer level technologies used by households and businesses, such as inverter connected solar PV, electrical energy storage (EES) systems, energy management systems, and electric vehicles (EVs). An increasing number of customers in electricity markets are seeking to mitigate rising electricity prices and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by deploying their own on-site renewable generation and storage. However, the high penetration level of DERs raises technical, commercial, and regulatory challenges, since the grid infrastructure is designed to deliver large-scale centralized generation to consumers rather than to integrate millions of consumer-owned generators. These changes will require the development of innovative approaches and technology solutions to ensure the efficient integration and coordination of DER. Efficient DER integration is expected to increase the value of local management of these resources and provides DER owners with the opportunity to maximize the return on their investment taking into account the increasing digitalization of the energy sector with more advanced communication technologies. From a grid perspective, coordinated and controlled use of DERs can provide substantial benefits for the stability of the broader network. This Special Issue, entitled “Innovative Solutions for Integration of Distributed Energy Resources” for the international journal Sustainability, mainly covers original research and studies related to the abovementioned topics including, but not limited to: - Integration of DER into power systems - Management of distributed and renewable energy resources - Demand response integration for DER management - Use of energy storage systems - Integrated community-based energy systems - Local energy systems - Renewable energy hosting capacity - Market design for flexibility services - Local energy trading, market mechanisms and business models - DER participation in future electricity markets under uncertainty - Transactive energy for DER management - Peer to peer and community-based trading in local market - Aggregation of DER in virtual power plants - Digitalization in energy systems - Role of IoT in DER integration
Project
As part of the Net Zero project, Monash University is building a Microgrid on its Clayton campus. This microgrid is intended to be a fully functional trading market and will result in the demonstration of a market-driven platform, where both energy and related services are managed in a smart network environment. Given this context, this project aims to develop a platform that allows a microgrid to provide aggregated flexibility services through the creation of internal competitive markets which allowing Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) to be appropriately rewarded for contributing their available flexibility towards Transactive Energy Market (TEM) internal and external goals.
