Abstract: Driven by the increasing of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from the utilisation of fossil fuels, particularly in transportation sector, and the shortage of fossil fuels itself, the development of future transportation system utilises electricity would be necessary. This development would significantly increase demand in power systems. Moreover, differences in characteristics, technologies and behaviour of electric vehicles users make it difficult to manage the demand and the efficiency of electricity use. Hence, an intelligent power system, smart grid system, would be needed to address these issues. Besides, implementing smart grids is expected to be a method to move toward utilisation of sustainable energy resources. However, despite many advantages promised by smart grid implementation, sophisticated criteria for steady and reliable power and transportation system challenges the implementation of smart grid. Therefore, in order to achieve future energy efficient transportation systems employing smart grids and sustainable energy, an organized approach is required. Thus, this paper describes an approach to develop multi-agent model which is expected to intelligently organise all the data and information, analyse and act based on the information in order to establish future energy efficient transportation system using smart grids and sustainable energy.
