Peer-to-peer electricity markets allow users to trade electricity among themselves thereby increasing their financial well-being. However, such markets also create opportunities for malicious players to misbehave in order to maximise their profits. Potential threats are impersonation, data manipulation, disputes and privacy breaches; users’ bids are closely correlated to their consumption patterns, which may reveal sensitive information. In this poster, we present work in progress to design a number of technical solutions (i.e., bid/offer creation, strategic bidding, market clearance, settlements, billing, dispute resolutions) to facilitate secure and privacy-friendly peer-to-peer electricity trading. The designed solutions will have limited (or no) impact on the grid, be compliant with the relevant legislation, and serve the existing (and new) market players’ interests even if they might have disruptive effect on the current energy value network chain.
