L'intelligence dans les réseaux est une réalité depuis longtemps. La nouveauté, c'est le besoin grandissant de flexibilité dans les systèmes électriques. Cela va remettre en cause les rôles respectifs des divers acteurs: fournisseurs d'électricité, régulateurs, industriels, gestionnaires de réseaux, clients.
Power grids have long been constructed with a built-in intelligence. So why is so much noise being made over the arrival of so-called "smart grids"? Are we witnessing a real revolution? The potential for a massive shake-up is clear, one that could have an impact on power utilities, regulators, manufacturers, network managers, and consumers for many years to come.
