Specialists from the Faculty of Informatics are currently occupied with an extensive contractual research for the company ČEZ Distribuce. This research concerns so called Smart Grids and Smart Meters which have a direct bearing on the energy supply systems of the future. Smart Grids are supposed to manage production, distribution and consumption of electricity while effectively utilizing local sources of energy. However, they also bring about research challenges concerning not only new technologies but also legal and security issues. We were discussing these challenges with Assoc. Prof. Tomáš Pitner, the head of the LaSArIS Lab at the Faculty of Informatics of MU.
