The electrical power industry in Morocco is facing challenges involved with sustained growth of demand, added to environmental protection requirements. Smart Grid (SG) holds a great promise for a cleaner, more efficient power, healthier air and lower greenhouse gas emissions by adapting production to demand, reducing consumption and incorporating large amounts of distributed "green" generations at the consumers end. In this talk, SG and its principal functions are discussed, while SG is a continuum from systems of today towards smartness, the Moroccan electrical grid's study shows that the government has taken several initiatives to make some of the existing power grid functions smarter. At last, the basic studies needed for developing SG in Morocco are presented and several suggestions in various aspects are prospected.
