While most of these strategic aspects apply to any area of the electricitygrid, the book focuses on distribution.

A utility that isat a relatively low level of grid modernization may leapfrog one or more levels of modernization toachieve some of the benefi ts of the highest levels of grid modernization.Smart grids impact electric distribution systems signifi cantly. In developing countries, modernizingthe distribution grid promises to benefi t the operation of electric distribution utilities in manyand various ways. These benefi ts include improved operational effi ciency (such as reduced lossesand lower energy consumption), reduced peak demand, improved service reliability, and ability toaccommodate distributed generating resources without adversely impacting overall power quality.Practical Guidance for Defi ning a Smart Grid Modernization Strategy concludes by describingfunding and regulatory issues that may need to be taken into account when developing smart gridplans.The World Bank Studies series is available for free download online through the Open KnowledgeRepository (https://openknowledge.worldbank.org).
