The smart grid is a set of information networks and electricity distribution networks. It is a network called “smart” because it optimizes the distribution of electricity, decentralizes the power plants and minimizes overloads and variations of the electrical voltage. This is the technical meaning of the smart electricity grid, but concretely what advantages do they offer?
In recent years, especially with the increasing adoption of renewable sources, smart grids have become the new paradigm to focus on. With a smart grid, in fact, several fields of energy production and distribution are going to be modified!
