A deregulated energy market, characterized by the growing use of decentralized energy systems and the increasing range and complexity of interactions between providers and consumers, cannot be realized without an adequate IT infrastructure. The challenges that rely ahead towards realizing this service-based informationdriven Internet of energy are substantial. We offer an industrial insight on how this future energy domain could be, identify research challenges that information and communication technologies (ICT) will have to deal with, and point towards directions that need to be followed in order to effectively support this emerging infrastructure.
