In recent years the energy paradigm is shifting from big-size centralized power plants to small-medium size distributed generation plants injecting power in a bi-directional power flow grid. For this reason, a new concept called “Smart energy system”, is growing where both physical networks (electricity, natural gas…) and non-physical networks (mobility and citizens/communities) have to interact towards the unique purpose: reduce energy carbon footprint and guarantee an affordable power supply for everyone.
