Electrical Smart Grid allows the utility’s products to be efficiently distributed, measured and controlled; and the infrastructure to be automated and integrated with both existing systems and new energy sources. Highly flexible and adaptive, the ICT-enabled Smart Grid will generate new business models, new energy management services, new tariff structures and new ways to engage and collaborate with consumers.

This report continues and updates the Practel, Inc project to research and to analyze Smart Grid ICT. In particular, it addresses the following subjects:

ICT standardization. So far, this process is supported by multiple organizations, such IEEE, ETSI, as well as various industry groups. The process itself is in the emerging state, and needs to be more coordinated.

ICT status. This part of the report addresses the current and future views on the ICT development. It analyzes the structure and characteristics of the Smart Grid ICT, security issues, the role of Smart Meters and other. Market prospectus is also included; the industry players’ product portfolios are surveyed. There are several Smart Grid projects in development or early introduction READ MORE >
