Smart grids are electricity networks that can intelligently and dynamically integrate the actions of all users connected to them — those who produce energy, those who consume energy, or those who do both — in order to provide electricity efficiently, sustainably , economically and safely. Smart grids incorporate digital technology into their traditional design to facilitate the two-way exchange of energy and information. They do this thanks to the internet, information and communication technologies, control systems and modern IT and home automation applications. A smart grid is therefore capable of meeting the electricity demand of citizens and any events that come up. Smart grids are capable of integrating renewable installations of various sizes and, thanks to their bidirectional nature, the user can be both a consumer and a producer: they can generate energy and sell it to industrial or commercial users.

The Structure

of Smart Grids


How do smart grids work?

The operation of a smart grid is more complex than that of a traditional grid, as it uses remote management incorporating automated information and control systems that respond to fluctuations in energy production and demand. This network provides information on energy consumption at any time and makes more responsible use of the entire cycle, as well as providing knowledge about the status of each node, section and element, increasing the performance and operational efficiency of the lines. That is, smart grids include the entire technological infrastructure that will be needed, from the generation, transmission and distribution of energy to the storage of electricity and the consumption of the energy produced.

At FGRID we are proud to be able to successfully transfer the know-how required for a more flexible and autonomous future.
