We calculate the ground-state energy of Dirac electrons in graphene in the presence of disorder. We take randomly distributed charged impurities at a fixed distance from the graphene sheet and surface fluctuations (ripples) as the main scattering mechanisms. A mode-coupling approach to the scattering rate and random-phase approximation for the ground-state energy incorporating the many-body interactions and the disorder effects yields good agreement with the experimental inverse compressibility.
