This book constitutes the post-conference proceedings of the First International Conference on Smart Grid Inspired Future Technologies, SmartGIFT 2016, held in May 2016 in Liverpool, UK. Smart grid is the next generation electric grid that enables efficient, intelligent, and economical power generation, transmission, and distribution. The 25 revised full papers presented were reviewed and selected from 36 submissions. The papers cover technical topics such as high-level ideology and methodology, concrete smart grid inspired data sensing, processing, and networking technologies, smart grid system architecture, Quality of Service (QoS), energy efficiency, security in smart grid systems, management of smart grid systems, service engineering and algorithm design, and real-world deployment experiences.
