Energy suppliers are faced with the requirements of increasingly complex and decentralized organized networks.
For example, in Smart Micro Grids many decisions have to be made locally rather than using a central control.
Intelligent devices like electric cars have to authenticate to be charged, and there are many means of feeding.
A protocol to secure the used data on current flow, feeders and electrical loads can help securing grids and ensuring that only authorized switch commands can be performed. At the same time the fragmented and local feeding and consumption can be recorded legally watertight and invoiced automatically.
