What are Smart Grids?

In few words; Smart Grid can be defined as the use of ICTs (information and communication technologies) in the generation, transmission, distribution and consumption of electrical energy.

Smart Grids are driving utilities, power industry and equipment suppliers through a massive business transformation, based on the digitization and the convergence of energy and information networks.
