Summary:



Transactive energy is a “next-big-thing” in the energy industry that will significantly revolutionize the relationship between utilities, consumers, and the environment. In general, power plants are usually linked together with communication platforms that more likely control a million points of demand. Transactive energy management systems include a set of economic and control mechanisms that assist in the dynamic balance of supply and demand towards the entire power infrastructures with the help of operational parameters. Many experts strongly believe that the dynamic nature of the electric grid and technological advances combined with economics will accommodate and drive from a centralized control system to a more distributed control system. Consequently, the need for demand response and other flexible distributed resources for grid reliability and market efficiency had grown dramatically. As a result, in the view of the need to substantially scale the use of flexible distributed energy resources, a growing amount of research attention is needed to address not only the economics but also the control system implication to assure grid reliability. This instance has led to a focus on peer-to-peer transactive energy management systems to optimize operations within a customer’s facility.



When it comes to peer-to-peer transactive energy management systems, the core idea is that the process of power generation and consumption is fully decentralized. There are three major groups of players in the peer-to-peer transactive energy construct, which includes energy services (producers, customers, storage, owners, and prosumers), intermediaries (market makers, system operators, and exchanges), and transport services (transmission and distribution owners). The major vision here is to optimize energy usage and enhance production based on value and grid constraints. It may sound simple but achieving this vision is utterly complex because it is multifaceted and needs several components to come together and work seamlessly. Scalability, technology, consumer behaviour, and the need for new distribution systems are some of the factors that typically influence the growth of peer-to-peer transactive energy management systems. As a matter of fact, control and optimization of energy sources requires a team effort and with peer-to-peer transactive systems, attaining cooperation between multiple stakeholders has become easier. It facilitates energy management by putting the stakeholders in control. From a single point they can easily measure, regulate, and monitor the energy-using systems. The peer-to-peer transactive systems optimise the energy usage by effectively monitoring and controlling the energy demands from various ends. Control functions include everything from power generation to more complex optimization routines. Further, peer-to-peer transactive energy management systems address various energy optimization applications such as electrical system health and efficiency, capacity management, equipment monitoring, and power event analysis. In addition, it continuously improves system safety, efficiency, reliability, and sustainability.



At present, a large number of researchers and practitioners are now actively involved in promoting a new paradigm of electricity service with peer-to-peer transactive energy management systems. In this context, the traditional customers will be actively engaged in both producing and consuming electricity, and the new entities will focus on providing and managing services on the electric grid. Thus, the future of power utility is gradually shifting towards being a provider of electricity delivery services and facilitator of transaction and operations on the smart grid. This special issue will examine this evolving vision, starting from the general overview and an analysis of its underlying drivers and then moving on to peer-to-peer transactive models that put these visions into operational practice. This special issue will also focus on similar initiatives taking place in this stream presently and come out with innovative peer-to-peer transactive energy management concepts and remarks on how it differs from the others. We encourage and facilitate collaboration among many of the researchers involved in peer-to-peer transactive energy management systems and thereby advance the practical implementation of transactive energy through their novel and innovative research contributions for this special issue. We invite articles that focus on practical results with accurate findings rather than just simulations.
