Abstract

There is growing interest in deploying the sharing-economy-based business model to energy systems, with modalities like peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading, Electric Vehicles (EV)-based Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G), Vehicle-to-Home (V2H), Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), and Battery Swapping Technology (BST). This paper exploits the increasing diffusion of EVs to realize a crowdsourcing platform called e-Uber that jointly enables ride-sharing and energy-sharing through V2G and BST. We employ theoretical concepts of online spatial crowdsourcing, reinforcement learning, and reverse auction to devise this novel platform. Experimental results using real data from New York City taxi trips and energy consumption show that e-Uber performs close to the optimum and outperforms a state-of-the-art approach.
