Today's energy system is undergoing profound change, driven in particular by new technological and sociological innovations. However, these innovative solutions are hardly evaluated in their concrete implementation or classified in their stages of development or maturity. As a result, the development of innovative solutions often takes longer than necessary, deviates from the originally intended path of the smart grid concept, and negatively impacts project planning in terms of time, quality, and budget. This paper provides a maturity-based approach to the development of smart grid roadmaps or migration paths and focuses on the socio-technical influencing factors.
