SUNSEED proposes an evolutionary approach to utilization of already present communication networks from both energy and telecom operators. These networks can be suitably connected to form a converged communication infrastructure for future smart energy grids offering open services. The networks’ convergence will be carried out in six steps: overlap, interconnect, interoperate, manage, plan and open; each step involves identification of the related smart grid service requirements and implementation of the appropriate solutions. SUNSEED approach promises much lower investments and total cost of ownership for future smart energy grids with dense distributed energy generation and prosumer involvement.
