In the context of the 8th IEEE International Smart Cities Conference, 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.
The technical areas include, but are not limited to:
5G-enabled network applications (NetApps) for advanced monitoring and control of smart grids
5G-enabled IoT for advanced monitoring and control applications for smart cities and smart grids (e.g., renewable distributed energy resources, active participation of green energy communities in real-time balancing markets, etc)
advanced measurement systems for smart grids and smart cities applications
cloud native solutions and chaining of virtual network functions (VNF) for NetApps serving smart cities and smart grids
innovative architectures for development, testing and validation of NetApps
digital twin frameworks for 5G-enabled testing and validation of solutions for smart grids and smart cities
5G edge computing for offload devices computational burden
