A Scalable Interdependent Multi-Issue Negotiation Protocol for Energy Exchange / 1098
Muddasser Alam, Enrico H. Gerding, Alex Rogers, Sarvapali D. Ramchurn

We present a novel negotiation protocol to facilitate energy exchange between off-grid homes that are equipped with renewable energy generation and electricity storage. Our protocol imposes restrictions over negotiation such that it reduces the complex interdependent multi-issue negotiation to one where agents have a strategy profile in subgame perfect Nash equilibrium. We show that our protocol is concurrent, scalable and; under certain conditions; leads to Pareto-optimal outcomes.
