Abstract: An attempt is made in this paper to summarise the state of the art in the interaction between the Information Communication Technologies (ICT) that becomes ubiquitous and the electrical power production and distribution. Both are considered to have a difficult task to fulfil enormous rise of demand that is becoming above all expectations. In the same time they technologically interfere in the sense that they mutually help in the fulfilment of their main task while in the same time loading each other with problems inherent to the respective technology. In the paper, we will try to merge our (LEDA laboratory of the University of Niš) own results with ones available in the literature in order to give as complete a picture of the subject as possible.

Keywords: ICT; information and communications technology; information technology; electrical power generation; smart grid; smartricity; data centres; cloud computing; N-computing; grid computing; prediction; IC design; environmental pollution; distortion; sustainability; sustainable development.
