Energy has been one of the most important issues in this century. Wide deployment of replacement and new energy may take decades, efficient utilization and thus saving energy based on current situation might be an effective way to significantly solve energy problem in a short time. Electric power is the most critical energy resource to people's everyday life. A good percentage of electric power has been wasted during the process of power delivery and distribution. With tremendous advance of Information Communication Technology (lCT), ICT enabling electricity energy efficiency is definitely the urgent technology for human being, which opens the era of smart grid in coming years and IEEE P2030 international standardization is in progress.
