A Smart grid represents an electrical grid which uses information and communications technology to gather and act on information. It brings remarkable improvements to everything from general network management to demand response and other demand-side improvements. Finally, it will help the supply-side as new technologies are implemented that helps to get more efficient utilities. As a result of new technologies, new players and new regulatory environments, a new energy value chain is emerging which encourages the competitive markets.
