Abstract. The energy sector, which has traditionally been an oligarchic
closed one, is undergoing major changes at all levels: more and more
players are authorized to produce, deal and transport energy, and energy
consumers are now in the position to also produce and trade energy. This
new trend can be supported by Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs) at
all levels. In this short position paper, we overview the current situation
of the energy sector and we indicate challenges for SOA to be addressed
for a successful unbundling of the energy arena, thus providing a more
efficient infrastructure with both environmental and economic benefits.
Keywords: SOAs in practice, Energy, Power Grid
1 Introduction
The energy production and distribution sector was traditionally a strong monopoly
