    This chapter focuses on the 5G key concepts and how they can be extremely beneficial in supporting the advanced smart grid services. It introduces the smart grid environment and discusses some of the future services that will be supported in the future smart grids. These services are broadly classified into two categories, namely data collection and management services that target enhanced grid monitoring capabilities, and control and operation services that deal with demand side management and electric vehicle charging and discharging coordination. The chapter illustrates how the 5G novel concepts such as software‐defined networking, network virtualization, and cloud computing offer enhanced services for grid monitoring, data processing, demand‐side management, and electric vehicle charging and discharging coordination. It also illustrates a summary of the application of these concepts in supporting the smart grid services. Future research directions are discussed to deal with the open challenging issues.
