The European ENERGISE study conducted a comprehensive analysis of various options for establishing ICT infrastructures for smart grids. It focused on the core question of whether the modern energy systems of the future should be based on own or third-party communication infrastructures.
This question is viable for an extensive deployment of smart grids and smart infrastructures in general. Especially considering the context of the European directive to reduce the cost of deploying high-speed electronic communications networks the need for joint infrastructure usage and deployment is of rising importance.
