Abstract

The prevalence of distributed energy resources encourages the concept of an electricity ‘Prosumer (Producer and Consumer)’. This paper proposes a distributed electricity trading system to facilitate the peer-to-peer electricity sharing amongst prosumers. The proposed system includes two layers. In the first layer, a Multi-Agent System (MAS) is designed to support the prosumer network, and an agent coalition mechanism is proposed to ena-ble the prosumers to form coalitions and negotiate electricity trading. In the second layer, a Blockchain (BC) based transaction settlement mechanism is proposed to enable the trusted and secure settlement of electricity trading transactions formed in the first layer. Simulations are conducted based on the Java Agent Development Environment (JADE) to validate the proposed electricity trading process.
