The term smart grid is typically associated with power systems, but it can also be applied to gas and heat networks. There is no consensus on the definition of smart (gas) grids in the literature. We use the description provided in [27]: the smart gas grid concept is based on maximizing the efficiency of overall energy usage and taking full advantage of the exibility and all the opportunities that gas and the gas grid can offer. In this report we present the results of a six-months project on technology and policy aspects of smart gas grids, performed between October 2014 and April 2015. The project has led to a successful Energy System Integration: planning, operations, and societal embedding (ESI-pose) application in 2015, increasing the degree of collaboration between the faculty of Technology, Policy and Management (TPM) and Numerical Analysis section of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMSC) faculty.
