Special Issue "Transaction-Based Peer-to-Peer Energy Management Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2019).
Interests: Renewable energy technologies; Energy management; Energy storage; Electric vehicles; Simulation and modelling; High-temperature superconductivity
Power systems are undergoing a fundamental transition due to the rapid adoption of distributed energy resources, including photovoltaic generation, electric vehicles, home batteries, and heat pumps. When combined with consumer-level communications and control, these resources allow previously passive consumers to become ‘prosumers’—consumers who can proactively manage their consumption, production, and storage of energy.
Recently, there has been significant interest in the potential for new transaction-based peer-to-peer energy management systems to integrate prosumer flexibility into power system operations. These systems offer advantages in terms of openness, transparency, and autonomy. At the same time, they introduce new challenges, particularly for managing uncertainty and network constraints, which have traditionally required aggregation and centralised coordination.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present state-of-the art research, solutions, and analysis in the field of transaction-based peer-to-peer energy management systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Communication architectures
- Computational complexity and scalability
- Coordination between energy trading platforms
- Data privacy and security
- Electricity market regulations
- Energy access and distributional issues
- Energy reliability
- Game-theoretic analysis
- Market mechanism design
- Microgrid trading platforms
- Modelling distributed energy resource flexibility
- Modelling prosumer preferences and behaviours
- Network costs and externalities
- New business models
- New energy and/or flexibility products
- Pilot programs and field tests
- Uncertainty and network constraints

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
