With the development of smart grid across the world, the focus of research has gradually shifting toward a future intelligent grid / energy internet in order to effectively achieve the emission reduction objectives and best utilise renewable energies. Current work on smart grid is mainly on setting up the smart infrastructures to facilitating digital information flow within the smart grid network which includes cyber network and physical power network. However, in view of wider system connectivity and investment efficiency, system wide development toward a future intelligent grid is becoming increasingly important and has been recognised in many nations. A future grid may include the electricity network (together with its cyber network for control and communication) as well as the primary energy network for gas, water and other primary energy resources. This presentation outlines the research development toward a future grid including system security, co-optimisation planning, as well as an overview of the research work in energy networks.
