Abstract: Smart grids represent a key element in the development of Smart Cities and promise to drastically change the way electricity is generated, exchanged and traded. The Joint Research Centre of the European Commission has for long observed, simulated and evaluated the developments of smart grids in Europe with new methodologies, embedded software e dedicated laboratories. As reported in a previous work from the JRC "Smart Grids Project Outlook 2014" (http://ses.jrc.ec.europa.eu/smart-grids-observatory), investments in Smart Grids have increased much in the last 10 years, exceeding €3 billion in Europe alone with over 450 projects among research, development, demonstration and diffusion. However, key questions remain to be answered: is investing in Smart Grids worth the cost? Is there a business case for scaling up locally tested Smart Grid solutions to wider cities? To what extent can citizens benefit from such innovation? Consistent with its mission of providing science-based support to policy makers, the JRC has developed a reference methodology for Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) of Smart Grids, with the wider aim of covering socio-economic impacts of Smart Grid projects.
