A smart grid is an intelligent network that integrates the actions of different users, consumers and producers to ensure an efficient, sustainable, secure supply of affordable energy.

Smart grid technology is used to provide electricity, to supply heating and cooling through a smart thermal grid or to distribute gas. The goal is to combine as many different energy sources as possible to optimise the consumption and energy performance of facilities.

Smart grids target the main challenges of the energy transition:

Smart grids are an integral part of smart cities and are connected to smart buildings.
