This paper discusses design and application of the multiagent simulation technology aiming to meet smart grid requirements. The difference between multiagent systems and multiagent simulation in smart grid applications is clarified. The state-of-the-art applications of multiagent simulation in power and energy systems are classified based on the simulation environment. The paper also addresses the interface issues including synchronization and data distribution for multiagent co-simulation. In
