Smart Grid & Smart City

 Latest update: August 2022 

Grid stability has traditionally been one of the top priorities in Japan, and smart grids are considered a key measure that can contribute to grid resiliency. The Japanese government is currently working with the IEC standard called the Smart Energy Grid Architecture Model (SGAM), as a model for a three-dimensional framework that enables the exchange of information among the various components in an energy system. Therefore, it is extending this conventional model to enable an overall understanding of the energy system, taking into account the interactions between the heat and electric systems and between the gas and electric systems.
