Abstract [en]

During the recent years several technologies and services based in Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine communications (M2M) have appeared in many different sectors; where IoT can be defined as the idea that any device that can be benefited by being connected will be connected and M2M communications is defined as the kind of communication between devices with minimal human interaction. IoT and M2M solutions can be applied in many sectors, like healthcare, transport, logistics, media or utilities. In every sector the motivations to implement this new services is different, as each sector has different final objectives and different actors and business models.

When new technologies (like Smart Grid) appear two types of challenges can be defined: technical and business challenges, therefore innovation has to be applied in both of them. Too often innovation is focus on the technologic evolution and underestimated on the business field, however it is a key aspect for new technologies and services to reach commercial success.

From the technological point of view the state of research on Smart Grid applications and services is quite advanced, while authors consider that innovation in the business part is one of the biggest challenges for Smart Grid technologies to reach success. The goal of this project is to understand the Smart Grid environment and context in different countries and propose business models suitable for the Smart Grid environment.
