Abstract

Local energy communities (LECs) represent a shift in energy management from an individual approach towards a collective one. LECs can reduce energy costs for end-users and contribute to meeting climate objectives through the use of renewable energy. This paper presents the application of a multiagent system (MAS) approach to realize the concept of LEC in a real-world scenario involving a community of households. An appropriate agent-based model for the given community is presented. This model effectively distributes the tasks among the agents considering electrical and heat energy flows. The agent coordination mechanism is based on the Alternative Direction Method of Multipliers. The obtained results provide evidence of the validity of the developed MAS and show its potential to increase a total social welfare of the community.
