Distributed energy resources are being progressively deployed by industry. The penetration of distributed generation in low voltage (LV) networks can position traditional consumers as market participants. With the improvements in communication networks and the introduction of new energy markets, these prosumers are incentivized to sell their excess production to other industries by participating in peer-to-peer (P2P) energy markets. This market paves the way for developing new technologies such as a shared battery energy storage system (SBESS). In this paper, a central storage unit rents its capacity for the prosumers to reduce the overall peak-load of the microgrid. Each user requests the required SBESS capacity and calculates the best charging and discharging times to reduce their cost. To this end, this paper organized a P2P energy trading paradigm with the presence of SBESS. The optimization problem was simulated and solved using the alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) algorithm. Results demonstrate how combining features of P2P energy trading and SBESS can save up to 29% for the industrial town.
