Abstract

Simulations, especially agent-based simulation, are able to facilitate the investigation of smart energysolutions and business models, and their impacts on the energy system and involved stakeholders. Technicaldetails, alternatives, and multiple options for what-if scenarios influence simulation quality, but no methodologyavailable to support the investigation. This paper proposes a method for identifying technical details of smartenergy solutions in the energy system and identifying research gaps in the smart grid context with EV solutionsas an example. The method includes the investigation of the state-of-the-art EV solutions by scoping review andthe allocation of the scoping review results into the Smart Grid Architecture Model framework with threedimensions (Domains, Zones, and interoperability layers). The quantitative scoping review results in a totalnumber of 240 references and 10 references match the criteria based on the qualitative scoping review. Theresults show that the most popular EV use case within the targeted scope is the V2G concept, and 6 out of the10 references discuss the EVs' potentials to work as energy storage. 17 features are identified by mapping theEV use cases (solutions and business models) into the three dimensions (domain, zone, and interoperabilitylayers) of the SGAM framework. The process at the Zone layer is the most popularly covered (mentioned 64times), and enterprise at the Zone layer and communication in the interoperability layer are the least covered(mentioned 4 times each).
