In this paper, the authors present a control architecture that allows to operate the energy storage facilities integrated into the wide area telecommunication network as mediators between the optimality criteria of the Smart Grid and the energy consumption modeling of the telecommunication network itself. Different control modes are discussed. In this paper, it will be argued that the storage facilities for electrical energy which have been integrated into the national carrier networks as a power reserve for blackouts with system-wide coverage may serve as a crucial link between the telecommunication network domain and the emerging Smart Power Grid.
