    Smart cities emanate from a smart renewable-energy-aided power grid. The smart grid technologies offer an array of benefits like reliability, availability, and resiliency. Smart grids phenomenally contribute to facilitating cities reaching those sustainability goals over time. Digital technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), automation, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) significantly contribute to the two-way communication between utilities and customers in smart cities.

    Five salient features of this book are as follows:

    • Smart grid to the smart customer

    • Intelligent computing for smart grid applications
