A recent major issue is the need for a healthy and sustainable power transmission and distribution system that is smart, reliable and climate-friendly. The Smart Grid (SG) is the next generation power network composed of intelligent nodes that can operate, communicate, and interact autonomously to efficiently deliver electricity to all stakeholders. It features ubiquitous interconnections of power equipment to enable two-way flow of information and electricity so as to integrate unconventional

Smart grid will provide highly consistent and reliable services, efficient energy management practices, smart metering integration, automation and precision decision support systems and self-healing facilities. Smart grid will also bring benefits of seamless integration of renewable energy sources to the power networks. This paper focuses on the benefits and probable deployment issues of smart grid technology for a sustainable future both nationally and internationally. This study explores the prospects and characteristics of renewable energy sources with possible deployment integration issues to develop a clean energy smart grid technology for an intelligent power system.
