Smart grid aims to achieve efficient energy-related operations. Smart grid will become a central component of Smart city that aims to improve citizens' quality of life. This paper validates that smart grid at matured state is the state where smart grid is naturally integrated into smart grid. Also, this paper describes smart grid as an essential element of smart city. This paper discusses necessary social infrastructure and investigates necessary technological features.
