Smart Grid/ IoT

In order to cope with the changing energy mix, it is necessary to modernize the management of electric grid  French and European context, in which electricity networks has been developed, has led to favor Smart Grids technologies rather than massive replacement and reinforcement of networks.

Integration of information and communication new technologies into the electrical grid will make them communicant and will guide electrical system players to deliver a more efficient, economically reliable and secured power supply.

The electrical system will thus be managed in a more flexible way to deal with constraints such as the renewable energies irregularities and the development of new uses such as electric vehicle. These constraints will also modify the current system, where real-time balance is ensured by adapting production to consumption, to a system where adjustment will be more demand-driven, the consumer being a real player.
