Smart grid: IT can boost Green Growth

Smart Grid is intelligent interaction between energy markets and energy infrastructure. Modern IT and communication technologies allow energy costumers to react quickly to price signals from energy producers and infrastructure companies. Smart grid will add value to increasing amounts of fluctuating wind power and drive electric transportation. Strong electric interconnectors combined with Smart Grid will allow energy markets to further integrate and create value for costumers and society. By going from “Hard Grid to Smart Grid” we can boost growth, welfare and sustainability.
