​Bis 2022 will Deutschland aus der Kernenergie aussteigen und zügig auf eine Energieversorgung auf der Grundlage erneuerbarer Energien wie Wind- oder Sonnenenergie umstellen. Diese lassen sich in großem Umfang nur mithilfe von Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologien (IKT) in das Elektrizitätssystem integrieren. In einem sogenannten Smart Grid verschmelzen IKT und Energietechnik und sorgen für nachhaltigen, zuverlässigen und bezahlbaren Strom. Die Studie beschreibt, welcher Migrationspfad in das in das Future Energy Grid bis zum Jahr 2030 zu beschreiten ist. Die Autoren skizzieren dazu in drei bildhaften Szenarien die möglichen Entwicklungen des Energiesystems in Deutschland und benennen die notwendigen technologischen Schritte in das wünschenswerte System einer nachhaltig-wirtschaftlichen Stromversorgung.​

​Deutschlands Energiewende kann nur mit Smart Grids gelingen. Bis 2022 will Deutschland aus der Kernenergie aussteigen und auf eine Energieversorgung auf der Grundlage erneuerbarer Energien umstellen. Diese lassen sich in großem Umfang nur mithilfe von Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologien (IKT) in das Elektrizitätssystem integrieren. In einem sogenannten Smart Grid verschmelzen IKT und Energietechnik und sorgen für nachhaltigen, zuverlässigen und bezahlbaren Strom – zum Vorteil der Stromkunden, der Energieerzeuger und der deutschen Wirtschaft. Doch mit dem Umbau der Elektrizitätsinfrastruktur kommen auch immense Herausforderungen auf Politik, Wirtschaft, Wissenschaft und Bevölkerung zu. Mit acht Thesen skizziert acatech die Zukunft der Energieversorgung in Deutschland und gibt konkrete Handlungsempfehlungen für den Aufbau des Future Energy Grids.​

The first successful finished Smart Grid Prototype Projects deliver new requirements and best practices to meet them. These solutions will be the base for the upcoming norms and standards in the near future. This domain is not only part of one Standard developing Organization (SDO), but also of many different organizations like ITU, ISO, IEC and additionally for the electro mobility part the SAE. This results in many standards which are based on different aspects. Furthermore the European mirror organizations (ETSI,CEN, CENELEC) as well as the German mirror groups of these groups are involved, which are delivering further rules and adaption for the local market. Because of this diversity of organizations involved, it is difficult for the local companies (which includes energy utility, manufacturer and software producer specialized on integration) to identify the relevant trends, standardization groups and technologies necessary. With the EU Mandate M490 to CEN/CNELEC and TESI and the Commission being a driving force (e.g. ftp://ftp.cencenelec.eu/CENELEC/Smartgrid/SmartGridFinalReport.pdf and http://www.cenelec.eu/aboutcenelec/whatwedo/technologysectors/smartgrids.html) standardization becomes more and more important – but it’s complex and not easy to be understood. Here at OFFIS, we provide training but we are always asked for textbooks on our tranings. Based on our modules for the SG tranings, we would estimate the following chapters to be relevant to SG stakeholders in standardization (roughly 16-20 pages per chapter).

Deutschland will bis zum Jahr 2050 seine Stromversorgung weitgehend auf erneuerbare Energien umstellen. Ob die Energiewende gelingen wird, hängt nicht nur von der Entwicklung neuer technischer Lösungen, sondern besonders auch von den wirtschaftlichen Rahmenbedingungen für den tiefgreifenden Umbau des Energiesystems ab. Eine effiziente Ordnungspolitik setzt dabei die richti-gen Anreize für die in enormem Umfang erforderliche Investitionstätigkeit privater Akteure und stellt sicher, dass die politischer Ziele zu gesellschaftlich vertretbaren Kosten erreicht werden. acatech gibt Empfehlungen, wie der energiewirtschaftliche Ordnungsrahmen in Deutschland neu auszurichten ist, damit die Energiewende finanzierbar gestaltet und so zum Erfolg geführt wird. Die acatech POSITION berücksichtigt, dass die nationalen Maßnahmen mit der europäischen Ordnungspolitik abzustimmen sind und eine erfolgreiche Energiewende auch einen wirkungsvollen Beitrag zum globalen Klimaschutz leisten muss.

"Bakke [explores] the many facets of America's energy infrastructure: its most dynamic moments and its most stable ones, and its essential role in personal and national life. The grid, she argues, is an essentially American artifact, one which developed with us: a product of bold expansion, the occasional foolhardy vision, some genius technologies, and constant improvisation. Most of all, her focus is on how Americans are changing the grid right now, sometimes with gumption and big dreams and sometimes with legislation or the brandishing of guns"--Dust jacket flap.

The Smart Grid has the potential to revolutionize electricity delivery systems, and the security of its infrastructure is a vital concern not only for cyber-security practitioners, engineers, policy makers, and utility executives, but also for the media and consumers. Smart Grid Security: An End-to-End View of Security in the New Electrical Grid explores the important techniques, challenges, and forces that will shape how we achieve a secure twenty-first century electric grid. Includes a Foreword by Michael Assante, President and CEO, National Board of Information Security Examiners Following an overview of the components of the Smart Grid, the book delves into the evolution of security standards and regulations and examines ways in which the Smart Grid might be regulated. The authors discuss the technical details about how metering technology is being implemented and the likely threats and vulnerabilities that utilities will face. They address the home area network (HAN) and examine distribution and transmission—the foundation for the delivery of electricity, along with distributed generation, micro-grids, and operations. The book explores future concepts—such as energy storage and the use of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs)—in addition to the concomitant risk for fraud and manipulation with stored energy. Consumer-related issues are discussed as they pertain to emerging ways of receiving and generating energy. The book examines dysfunctions ranging from inadvertent outages to cyber-attack and presents recommendations on how to respond to these incidents. It concludes with speculation of future cyber-security challenges and discusses new ways that the grid can be defended, such as better key management and protection. Written in a style rigorous enough for the practitioner yet accessible to a broad audience, this comprehensive volume covers a topic that is becoming more critical to industry and consumers everywhere.

This book provides the connection between the growing body of literature on sustainability and the topics of energy and ICT. It aims to show how stakeholders active in this area need to play their part ensuring that the ICT-sector evolves towards a sector that can lead through “greening by IT” and also shows that it can “green its own IT” as well. This is the first book that integrates two seemingly incompatible approaches to sustainability: efficiency and effectiveness. The book builds on the efficiency initiatives already taken by industry, but it is not a “how-to-do-it manual”. It offers insight in state of the art approaches to green IT and greening by IT. Attention to important stakeholders outside the sector, e.g. policy makers and the field of education, makes this book comprehensive. A more encompassing view on ICT and sustainability is offered to the reader and, as such, managers in higher education, educators, CIO’s, policymakers and regulators are inspired to integrate their efforts and to contribute to a transition of one of the most important and prominent sectors in our global economy.

The re-engineering of power transmission systems is crucial to meeting the objectives of such regulators as the European Union. In addition to its market, organisational and regulatory aspects, this re-engineering will also involve technical issues dealing with the progressive integration of innovative transmission technologies in the daily operation of transmission system operators. In this context, Advanced Technologies for Future Transmission Grids provides an overview of the most promising technologies, likely to be of help to planners of transmission grids in responding to the challenges of the future: security of supply; integration of renewable generation; and creation of integrated energy markets (using the European case as an example). These issues have increased importance because of administrative complication and the fragmentation of public opinion expressed on the build up of new infrastructure. For each technology discussed, the focus is on the technical-economic perspective rather than on purely technological points of view. A transmission-system-operator-targeted Technology Roadmap is presented for the integration of promising innovative power transmission technologies within power systems of the mid-long term. Although the primary focus of this text is in the sphere of the European energy market, the lessons learned can be generalized to the energy markets of other regions.
