Smart Grid and Distributed Generation

With the publication of Annex A70 in March 2012, the Smart Grid have made ​​the entry in the official newspaper of the plant world. The need for a network of intelligent distribution of the electrical energy comes from the increasing spread of Distributed Generation. On 31/12/2012 are connected to the network MT-BT about 20GW of GD, of which 16.4 GW of photovoltaics. The whole is to be compared with about 50GW absorbed from the national grid. Who does Distributed Generation can therefore no longer limited to produce the maximum possible in order to maximize their own economic interests, but it
