The "Smart Grid"

The term "Smart Grid" describes a concept of an electricity infrastructure where consumers and producers of electricity are connected both physically through wires and informationally e.g. through the internet. This enables multilateral communication between consumers and producers of electricity.

Why Smart Grid?

The Smart Grid enables effective utilization of infrastructure and an increase in quality of service in a world which is transitioning from fossil-based power production towards one based on renewable energy sources.

Consumers in the Smart Grid

In the Smart Grid the consumers become an active asset in electricity grid management; they become "Prosumers", consuming electricity when production from renewable energy sources are high and selling local surplus production when needed.
