Abstract: Innovation efforts within the Smart Energy domain have been used to build an Internet of Energy. Each and every electrical device and generator are connected, transmitting and receiving data, reacting in real time to events and stimuli that come from other devices and from the grid. This is a scattered network of sensors, actuators, communication nodes, systems control and monitoring applications. The Internet of Things is enabling the development of such new paradigm by the pervasive deployment of distributed smart objects with communication, learning and reasoning capabilities. In this scenario households, buildings, plants become micro-grids where smart devices are able to interact within and across them. In this paper collaboration among smart micro-grids, is modeled, implemented and evaluated as a peer to peer overlay of multi-agent systems, whose emergent behavior is the effective management of green energy produced by photo-voltaic panels.
