Proceedings of the 1st International Conference on Smart Grid Technology, Economics and Policies (SG-TEP)
The development of a Smart Grid involves severalactors from domains like electrical engineering, information technology and business economics. Additionally, several legal, regulatory and economic aspects introduce additional complexity and must be considered. Hence, changes to such a critical infrastructure should be identified and carried out in a wellstructured manner. Enterprises are in the end the entity to implement the Smart Grid vision. Thus, this contribution introduces enterprise architecture in the context of Smart Grids and provides the SGEAD-method to approach challenges arising in the development of enterprise architectures.
