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 and system operators 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. The system sets up an interactive and competitive environment of modular market mechanisms. 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, next to its application for research.
