Smart grids are being developed in several states and provinces worldwide. Motivated by distinct policies and technical constraints, regional authorities prioritize some applications of the smart grid over others in order to meet their specific needs.

Each application has a different set of economic, environmental and security impacts. Each region has its own variety of energy challenges that may be, capacity constraints, reliability or the integration of more renewable energy.
