Abstract

Future sustainable energy systems are in focus of several national and international R&D programs. The transition from today’s tariff-based energy systems towards future sustainable energy markets has to be supported by addressing and solving a range of challenges. Among the identified barriers are doubts of user acceptance of future Smart Grids due to lack of experiences, opportunities and possibilities: hence lack of experimental validations. Our suggestion of SLA-Agents experimental facility is aiming at filling some of those shortcomings, not the least issues related to trust by stakeholders.
