Abstract

The forthcoming Smart Grid is expected to implement a new concept of transmission network which is able to efficiently route the energy produced from both concentrated and distributed plants up to the final user with high security and quality of supply standards. Therefore the Smart Grid is expected to be the implementation of a kind of “internet” in which the energy packets are managed similarly to data packets, across routers and gateways which autonomously can decide the best pathway for the packet to reach its destination with the best integrity levels. In this respect the “Internet of Energy” concept is defined as a network infrastructure based on standard and interoperable communication transceivers, gateways and protocols that allow a real time balance between the local and the global generation and storage capability with the energy demand, also allowing high level of consumer awareness and involvement. This paper presents some basic concept of the Internet of Energy and, in particular, its impact on Electric Mobility.
