Increasing Importance of Energy Optimization for Making Urban Grid Architecture Sustainable

Summary

Energy optimization has become increasingly important in managing urban areas, which will need to be simultaneously planned with the development of sustainable cities. We now see a heightened focus on achieving efficient and environmentally-friendly infrastructures aimed at establishing a low carbon society, which in turn has led to the evolution of grid architectures. In order to achieve this feat, various countries are promoting smart grid initiatives and projects covering power system network management. The digital two-way communication network offered by the smart grid will also provide for increased sustainability. However, in the long-term, focus needs to be on increasing the amount of renewable power generation. To make the grid truly sustainable, it needs to be dependent on diverse sources of energy that can be sustained indefinitely.
