This paper describes some of the aspects of the Smart Grid Initiative in the US and purports its realization through an emerging paradigm in microgrids, i.e., the customer-driven microgrids. Special attention is paid to the increasing role played by energy storage elements. Some existing technologies of energy storage are revisited in the perspective of their utilization in customer-driven microgrids.
