Market Garden is a scalable research environment and demonstration tool, in which market mechanisms for smart energy systems and the interaction between end users, traders, system operators, and markets can be simulated. Users can create scenarios in a user-friendly editor in which a hierarchical market architecture and a model of the physical grid can be defined. Individual market mechanisms are set up in a modular fashion, which means they can easily be coupled and interchanged. A visualiser in which the results can be explored in a graphical and intuitive way is included, making Market Garden very suitable for user experience and demonstration purposes.
