Growing electrical demands followed by constantly growing supplies led to troubled electrical services manifested by technical and economic deficiencies and undesirable environmental impacts. Technical and economic difficulties are mainly represented in congestions at peak demands associated with compromised quality (e.g. voltage drop) and high-priced energy. At low-demands, a resulting low energy cost could be driving power station to operate at the limits of economic viability. The paper is describing dynamic intelligent techniques enabling sharing communication network resources to achieve controlled electrical energy consumption. The scheme is an endeavour towards achieving a Dynamic Smart Grid environment offering seamless communication between users and suppliers in a way to allow a deliberate and timely user’s decision for electrical connection. This implies the development and implementation of a dynamic intelligent energy management system, which allows the user to withdraw electrical energy in a conscious, responsible and cost-effective manner. The supplier, on the other side, is handing the quantity of the supplied electrical energy to a particular user at a time following specific transacted information. The described system improves the use of energy consumption around the clock reflecting the benefit of the user and supplier. The results are creating transparent users-suppliers conditions, better use of electrical energy resources, reduced energy prices, and better economics of power stations, more diversified energy sources, more use of renewable energy, and a reduction of environmental polluting emissions.
