  • What is a smart grid?A smart grid is an energy network that integrates consumption and feed-in behavior of all market participants connected to it.

    It ensures an economically efficient, sustainable power system with low losses and high availability.

  • 3 phases with 10 steps to a smart grid in GermanyFigure 2: 10 Steps towards smart grids in Germany (BDEW, Eurelectric basis)


  • Step 1: Separation and interaction of market and networkWho?All market participants (systematic approach)

    What?Rulings and division of work / definition of interfaces between regulated & competitive players

    When?Start 2013Figure 3: Traffic light concept (BDEW)

  • Step 2: Legal and regulatory frameworkWho?Federal GovernmentBundestagFederal Network Agency

    What?Consistent EnWG/EEGConfiguration throughout ordinancesTaking account of EU legislation and telecommunication regulation

    When?ImmediatelyFigure 4: Legal and regulatory framework (BDEW)

  • Step 3: Research and development, pilot projectsWho?Energy suppliersICT developers / manufacturersResearch institutions

    What?R&DPilot and demonstration projects (publicly & privately funded)Evaluation & Communication

    When?Up until 2018Figure 5: Distribution network today/tomorrow (BDEW)

  • Steps 4 to 6: Standards, measurement & automationWho?Standardisation institutionsDSO and meter operatorsManufacturers, associations

    What?Definition of rules and regulationMarket communicationInstallation of smart metering and control systemsAutomation of networks

    When?Continuously until 2020Figure 6: Sensor technology in the network (BDEW)

  • Step 7: Local & global optimisation of the energy systemWho?DSO, TSOSuppliers, aggregatorsStorage operators, consumers

    What?Coordination of technical optimisation (local, global)Coordination of economic optimisation between market participants

    Wann?From 2014Figure 7: Interactions between local and central market participants (BDEW)

  • Step 8: Storage and electromobilityWho?GeneratorsDSO, TSOEnergy service providers, suppliers

    What?Time-related balance between energy supply and demand. Stabilisation of energy supply by provision of services in the energy network.

    When?First steps from 2018Figure 8: Power to gas principle (BDEW)

  • Steps 9 and 10: Supply and Demand Side ManagementWho?GeneratorsDSO, TSOSuppliers, aggregators, storage facility operators

    What?Temporal balance between generation and consumption Development of commercial demand-response programmes

    When?From 2014Figure 9: Potential and market proximity in the smart grid (BDEW)
