The accessibility of small scale renewable sources, the emergence of electric vehicles, and a need for sustainability are fueling a change in the way electricity is produced and consumed. This is happening together with the digitalization of the electric infrastructure, something that is providing for vast amount of data and control opportunities. We overview the current and promised change in the electricity distribution grid from the perspective of Information and Communication Technology, taking the points of the smart meter, the user, the utility, and the ICT service provider.
