Energy storage, decentralised energy generation and smart grids are multi-faceted subjects offering a great deal of scope for research. To anyone who starts working in the field it soon becomes even clearer. It is not surprising that there are professors specialising in smart grids. The term ‘smart grid’ is sometimes considered to be a buzz-word or a hyped-up subject. It is an umbrella term for something that is difficult to define and as with every innovation or transition there is a lot involved.
