Global energy demand is expected to climb about 25% by 2040. This will be a challenge for the national power grid. Distance between generating stations and consumers is also another concern that may lead to more line losses and reducing the efficiency of the power system. This increasing demand leads to complexities in a national grid with increased demand for reliability, security, and environmental concern. The solution to the above challenges and requirements is the new structure of the power system known as the “Nano grid”. A nanogrid can be considered as an electrical generation and distribution system, which is a building block of small loads, two or more distributed generations (DGs), and the ability to connect or disconnect from the utility grid. In this article, an overview of Nano grid technology with its advancement and the prospect has been presented.

Keywords: Distributed Generation (DG), Nano Grid, Power Grid, Renewable Energy (RE).
