An unified model of peer to peer energy trade and electric vehicle charging using blockchains
In Press
Optional Fields
In this paper we develop a trade model that integrates peer to peer energy trade and Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure. Energy distribution network may not allow energy transfer among microgrids. In the proposed trade model, each microgrid operates one local charging station and microgrids form coalitions to trade EV charging requests among themselves for the optimal utilization of renewable energy. Our main contribution is a multifaceted marketplace using blockchain where prosumers, microgrids and EVs participate in energy trade. Using blockchains, we present distributed scalable computation methods for trade decisions which are robust against malicious and faulty participants.
