Welcome to PyMarket’s documentation!¶
PyMarket is a python library designed to ease the simulation and comparison of different market mechanisms.
Marketplaces can be proposed to solve a diverse array of problems. They are used to sell ads online, bandwith spectrum, energy, etc. PyMarket provides a simple environment to try, simulate and compare different market mechanisms, a task that is inherent to the process of establishing a new market.
As an example, Local Energy Markets (LEMs) have been proposed to syncronize energy consumption with surplus of renewable generation. Several mechanisms have been proposed for such a market: from double sided auctions to p2p trading.
This library aims to provide a simple interface for such process, making results reproducible.
