Studies reveal that an integrated system of smart grid and cloud computing ecosystems can better attain the energy efficiency objectives, considering all the aspects. To facilitate the integration, in this paper, we introduce an agent-oriented economic middleware architecture (ARTA) to exchange pervasive energy and computing resources in different layers of the service provisioning platform, from the edge layer of micro-grid and P2P-cloud to the mass production layer of the giant power plants and data centers. ARTA follows a semi-decentralized economic model by operating through partial system view in the edge-layer negotiations and considers system dynamics and uncertainties in the agents decisions.
