Smart grid is a new revolution in the energy sector in which the aging
utility grid will be replaced with a grid that supports two-way
communication between customers and the utility company. There are two
popular smart-grid reference architectures. NIST (National Institute for
Standards and Technology) has drafted a reference architecture in which
seven domains and actors have been identified. The second reference
architecture is elaborated by ETSI (European Telecommunications
Standards Institute), which is an extension of the NIST model where a
new domain named distributed energy resources has been added. This
chapter aims at identifying the use of IoT and IoT-enabled technologies
in the design of a secure smart grid using the ETSI reference model.
Based on the discussion and analysis in the chapter, the authors offer
two collaborative and development frameworks. One framework draws
parallels' between IoT and smart grids and the second one between smart
grids and edge computing. These frameworks can be used to broaden
collaboration between the stakeholders and identify research gaps.
