Despite the significant merits of plugin electric vehicles (PEVs) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), their enormous rise has posed serious challenges in terms of energy supply. This research proposes a sustainable energy platform to integrate PEVs and FCEVs under the concept of microgrid (MG) with power and green hydrogen as energy carriers, so-called integrated power, and hydrogen MG (IPHMG). In addition, a decentralized market clearing model is developed to enable the nearby IPHMG to interact in a local energy market (LEM). The LEM is run by a central manager for both power and hydrogen. To do so, the mobile edge computing (MEC) system is proposed to move the computation from a central cloud server to decentralized edge servers, causing to reducing the computational burden and increasing data security and privacy. Moreover, the fast alternating direction method of multipliers (fast-ADMM) is employed to decompose the problem. Further, this work advances the state-of-the-art in uncertainty management by introducing a tri-level uncertainty controlling approach to fully consider the uncertain parameters. According to the obtained results, the community of IPHMGs could reduce 5.86% of total cost by trading energy in the LEM and the presented hybrid uncertainty management model could protect the community against uncertainties by reducing the total cost by 8.08%.
