Although the financial crisis shrinks oil price, human as an entire race still face the future of a hot, flat and crowded world . Therefore, a critical transformation from our traditional energy consumption manner of fossil fuel combustion must be made. After years of endeavor in research and experiment, a number of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) has already become technically available as alternatives. A pivotal task still needed to be carried out is adapting the existing electricity infrastructure, which is still a very efficient energy delivery facility, to incorporate emerging RES openly and equally. For the purpose of wide adoption of RES, which results in the evolution to next generation infrastructure for electricity, impellers should contain economic and political measures, rather than only technology. In this paper, we introduced the architecture of future electricity infrastructure based on microgrids for high RES penetration. Moreover, we brief the mechanisms of a prevailing electricity market, for economical incentives of RES accommodation. Most important of all, the multi-agent model of the proposed system and its coordination mechanism within the market environment is elaborated.
