Abstract

This study examines the critical function of smart energy networks (SENs) in addressing the urgent global challenge of climate change. The study begins by elucidating the significant contributors to climate change, emphasizing the role of traditional energy sources, and underscores the need for a paradigm shift towards sustainable and cleaner alternatives. It explores the many facets of smart energy networks (SENs), including demand-side management, energy storage, smart grids, and the incorporation of renewable energy sources as revolutionary ways to reduce the environmental effect of energy use. The research evaluates the current state of climate change, illustrating the detrimental effects on global temperatures, extreme weather events, and ecosystems. It delineates the causes and impacts of climate change, attributing a substantial portion to conventional energy practices, industrial processes, deforestation, and transportation. The study meticulously examines the challenges encountered in the implementation of SENs, ranging from interoperability and cybersecurity to data management and scalability. Further exploration centres on the integration of solar and wind power within SENs, highlighting their potential in contributing to a sustainable energy mix. The research then projects a future outlook for SENs in the context of the Indian market, postulating policy support, grid modernization initiatives, decentralized energy solutions, and private sector participation as key drivers for scaling up and fostering innovation.

Keywords: Smart energy networks, climate change, sustainable alternatives, renewable integration, environmental impact, global temperatures, interoperability, solar power, wind power, Indian market, policy support
