In this paper, transition policy alternatives for moving an electricity distribution grid towards being ‘smart’ are developed and evaluated using a scenario approach. Making the distribution grid smart involves system development under deep uncertainty and complexity. In this paper, several transition policy options from a distribution network operator’s perspective were evaluated and adjusted for various scenarios. As a result, insights were gained for identifying a robust transition policy towards ‘Smart Grid’ in the face of a deeply uncertain future.
