This chapter discusses the application of smart grid technologies to advanced manufacturing. The motivation for smart grid developments and deployment is reviewed. It discusses and exemplifies energy assets in manufacturing plants, with distinctions drawn among loads, storage, and generation. Pricing and market mechanisms are also outlined. It presents three approaches for applying smart grid concepts to smart manufacturing; these lie on a spectrum from full utility control to full facility control: direct load control, automated demand response, and microgrids. In each case, architectural templates are included and the states of practice reviewed. Communications and control are central to smart grid functionality, and scalable deployment requires standardization of these. The OpenADR 2.0 protocol, now established through international standards, is discussed in this context and capabilities relevant to smart manufacturing are noted. Despite encouraging developments, the manufacturing sector lags residential and commercial sectors in smart grid applications. Relevant reasons and challenges are outlined.
