Energy flexibility is becoming more significant part of future power systems. Buildings can be a massive source of flexibility to face the challenges associated with the Smart Grid. Specially, a collection of buildings or a neighborhood can offer better flexibility by managing their energy profile. There are a number of standard frameworks developed to provide support for the design of different smart grid use cases and to facilitate the interoperations among different actors in the smart grid context. But there is a lack of a comprehensive architecture framework which specifies the role of smart neighborhood. This paper reviews the existing research frameworks of Smart Grids and how to incorporate future intelligent neighborhood energy management systems into these frameworks. The analysis identifies gaps in the existing frameworks and proposes a modular interoperability framework focusing on the smart neighborhood aspect.
