The need for clean energy has become crucial with population growth, the abundant demand in traditional energy resources and the need for the decarbonization of economy to curb climate change. The solution ahead is to shift to and integrate more renewable and clean sources of energy with the existing conventional energy infrastructure as well as offer end-users a more active role in the integrated management of their energy resources (grid, loads, storage, microgeneration). Energy trading platforms are mechanisms used to attain increased energy demands while meeting participants’ satisfaction (i.e., consumers, prosumers, and utility grids). Participant satisfaction is driven by two main factors: stable coverage of energy demand and profit maximization, which can be fostered by demand response programs. Peer-to-Peer (P2P) energy trading platforms should find a win-win balance, where all participants are able to make some profit and meet their energy demand under any circumstances.
