Cloud computing has emerged as a potential solution for managing data generated from the advanced metering technology used in smart grids. Issues related to the large-scale, real-time computing, communication, transfer and storage of data generated by smart grid technologies can all be addressed through cloud computing. Cloud computing is a new phenomenon in the field of information technology that will allow utilities to make better use of their storage and processing capacity in smart grids. The need for cloud computing will increase as the deployment of smart meters and intelligent electronic devices increases.
