This paper describes the state-of-the-art in microgeneration integration on the Portuguese grid. After describing the legal framework related with the connection of microgeneration with the grid, and the response associated with a recent Decree-Law (DL) enacted to regulate microgeneration integration with the grid, some results are presented concerning to EDP - Distribution's (EDP) experience in evaluating the operational conditions of microgeneration connected with the Low Voltage (LV) grid. It is foreseeable that the interest of electrical energy consumers in microgeneration technologies will increase, resulting on the integration of these units on a larger scale. Furthermore, technological developments allow the development of smartgrid concepts that will bring new capabilities to electrical grids. EDP aims to harness the full potential of these new realities, building a vision for tomorrow's electrical grid through project InovGrid.
