Emerging advanced capabilities of information technology provide strategic
opportunities for new intelligent distributed services on the power grid.
Homebots is the name we have coined for one of these innovative services:
decentralized power load management at the customer side, automatically
carried out by a 'society' of intelligent household, industrial and utility
equipment. We show how this application can be modelled in terms of independent
intelligent agents that communicate and negotiate in a computational market
economy, with the joint goal of achieving cost and energy savings. Various
simulation results proving the feasibility of the concept will be presented.
