ICT is in this sense functioning in the same way as other infrastructures; today it plays an increasingly important role in maintaining and developing society and has the potential to support a resource-efficient sustainable society. But it also has the capacity to be used to make modern society an even more efficient machine for over-exploiting the
This paper shows the meaning of Smart Grids in principle. It contains the advantages and benefits of this intelligent structures. Also, the two most significant renewable energy sources with their problems are mentioned. To solve this challenge in the future, an overview of different communication technologies is given at the end. Index Terms – Smart grids, renewable energy, communication technology In an increasingly deregulated and distributed energy market, communication between the points of energy generation, distribution, and consumption becomes an essential constituent of efficient grid control.

He adds that community involvement in the process is highly necessary. Therefore, a smart city would be a city that not only possesses and utilizes ICT technology but has also implemented this technology to positively impact its community. An alternative definition for a “smart city” according to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers is: "A smart city brings together technology, government and society to enable the following characteristics: smart cities, a smart economy, smart mobility, a smart environment, smart people, smart living, and smart governance.” For the Indian Government (2014): "Smart City offers sustainability in terms of economic activities and employment opportunities to a wide section of its residents, regardless of their level of education, skills or income levels.” On the other hand, by general definition, a smart citizen is one who has civic sense and respects the law. According to citizenlab, innovations and technologies implemented in the smart city create smart citizens. We become smart citizens through our changing behaviors, efficient practices and smarter social
According to Chineke, Nwofor and Okoro (2010) due to fast populace development and increment in mechanical exercises, more energy is consumed, resulting in natural contamination and monetary challenges subsequently, the requirement for utilising renewable energy has risen. Renewable energy source contributes a brilliant opportunity for mitigation of greenhouse gas emission and diminishing global warming via substituting conventional energy sources. Therefore , sustainable power source will be the best arrangement enough to keep away from noteworthy and perpetual natural and climatic changes. The advantages of the renewable energy are economic and eco friendly, high durability, provide employment opportunities and low maintenance cost. One of the major advantages of using renewable energy is economic and eco friendly which
The main purpose of the Smart Grid is to control the appliances at consumers’ homes to save energy, reduce cost and increase reliability and transparency. Smart grid is a modern electric system which uses advanced information and communication technologies to improve efficiency, reliability, and safety in electric power distribution and management .Smart grid applications generate a large volume of data, which is required to be transferred to the control center in time. Therefore, reliable and prompt data communications are critical for smart grid. Smart grid communication architecture is typically comprised of three interconnected networks: Wide Area Network (WAN), Neighborhood Area Network (NAN), and Home Area Network (HAN) .HAN collects the data from the home appliances. NAN transmits the data from HANs and other collectors to WAN.
Introduce: Nowadays in the modern world, we use a lot of energy to serve our life. Especially alternative energy. Which is the energy come from natural and atmosphere around us. It have a lot of advantage side and useful to our life. So what is fossil fuel and alternative energy?
Public Private Partnership is one of the authorized strategies purposed to rally the industrial economic need and not reducing the social needs of the community(Markom & Ali, 2012). Public-Private Partnership plays an important responsibility for advancing economic and social infrastructures. In economic infrastructure refers to toll-roads, bridges, tunnels, airports, seaports, and rail networks, as well as common utilities such as gas distribution networks, electricity and renewable energy production and distribution, and water treatment and distribution facilities. Public-Private Partnership has used to improve, construct, rebuild, and maintain the quality and existence of these infrastructures (Zen & Regan,
Grid Computing is one technology enabler for some of the most innovative and powerful emerging industrial solution approaches. The
