Peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading has gained significant importance in recent years due to the growing energy needs worldwide. To ensure the effective and efficient implementation of P2P energy trading, it is necessary to analyze the concept from multiple dimensions. This study aims to investigate the challenges that may hinder the smooth flow of P2P energy trading and identify strategies to overcome them. Technical, cybersecurity, renewable energy integration, economic, pricing mechanisms, and regulatory challenges are among the key obstacles that may curtail the full potential of P2P energy trading. In addition, the full achievement of the P2P energy trading potential requires a global response from stakeholders to ensure widespread acceptance and adoption. Game theory and agent-based modeling can effectively address these challenges and facilitate the successful implementation of P2P energy trading.
