Abstract: Electricity, considered by most to be energy, is actually an energy currency. Power collected from a variety of sources, such as falling water, burning fuel, wind and solar is used to create electricity for delivery to customers. Electricity has proven to be a convenient and efficient means of delivering energy. Electricity is delivered at the speed of light and is consumed the instant it is created. There is no means to store electricity without converting it to another form of energy. As a result, the demand for power, driven by users, must match the supply of power from the available sources (e.g. generators and energy storage devices) at all times. As the Smart Grid continues to evolve, and demandside management, which is available today, builds on its growing reputation as a cost-effective way for industrial users to manage energy usage and costs, buy-in from both residential and industrial consumers will become simpler. In this paper we have discussed use of ICT in Smart Grid, concept of Smart Grid, Goals and Objectives of Smart Grid, Characteristics of Smart Grid, Smart Grid Applications and Services, and Challenges in Smart Grid.
