Possible Peer-to-Peer Pricing Mechanismin Micro-Grid Thailand
Abstract - Peer-to-Peer (P2P) pricing mechanisms enable electricity trading between prosumers and nearby consumers in community Micro-Grid to support a power system's decentralization.This paper proposes the two possible pricing mechanisms for P2P electricity trading, i.e., bill sharing (BS) and auction mechanism (AM). Under both P2P schemes, prosumers can sell their excess electricity after self-consumption to obtain more income. At the same time, consumers can pay less electricity cost than participating in Thailand's solar incentive scheme (Net-metering with buyback). However, both P2P methods have different energy allocation and clearing price calculations, so they are discussed and compared with the Net-metering with buyback scheme.
