In the context of the 8th IEEE International Smart Cities Conference, Smart5Grid organises a Special Session on 5G for Smart Cities and Smart Grids.
Smart cities and smart grids are twin concepts since both integrate advanced information and communication technology (ICT) towards enhanced automation and digitalization. This allows the participation of green communities in modern governance of the city and their active involvement towards the sustainability of the power grid. The evolution in wireless technology and especially the 5th Generation wireless communication (5G) is an essential enabler for faster digitalization and for empowering communities in smart cities as well as for enhancing the deployment of advanced automation, monitoring and control systems in smart grids. Features such as portability, guaranteed quality of service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE), economy of scale for the proposed solutions even in crowded, or remote, or less accessible areas makes 5G a technology of choice for plethora of grid and smart cities’ related applications.
