This work proposes mean field game-type models for two instances of large-scale energy systems, namely plug-in electric vehicles and thermostatically controlled loads. Theoretical and numerical analysis show that both systems possess an equilibrium configuration which is optimal for the individuals and beneficial for the overall population.
