ABSTRACT
The article discusses the challenges to existing electricity grid architecture that was designed to transport electricity from central large-scale power stations, as electricity generated from renewable sources expands like offshore wind farms. Smart grids reportedly require various stakeholders to agree like energy suppliers, investors and politicians. It is recommended that smart grid components must reliably fulfill standardized requirements like interoperability, safety and security.
