The key elements of the new power system architecture are micro grids, smart grids and a number of interconnectors for an effective super grid. The first three sections of this report provide information on the technologies and economics of each of these systems. The final section outlines the study which applied the Greenpeace Energy [R]evolution scenario for Europe and worked out how big the onshore super grid would need to be to support it.
