Smart Grid has been initially understood as enhancement of the electricity distribution infrastructure with the latest information and communication technology to enable more flexibility, and, consequently, higher energy efficiency and robustness. Arguably, the decisive attention to this topic was drawn after the famous 2003 blackout in North America. The wider use of renewable energy resources complemented the flourishing developments on this front.
Through the years, the term SmartGrid has been becoming more inclusive, synonymous to Smart Energy and including adjacent topics, such as hydrogen related ones and many more. Research under the “Smart Energy” umbrella can encompass mathematical models and the business side, to very technical substation automation topics.
