The term Smart Grid has become a term to represent the benefits of a smart and sophisticated electrical grid, which can meet various social expectations related to sustainability and energy efficiency. The Smart Grid promises to enable a better power management for energy utilities and consumers, to provide the ability to integrate the power grid, to support the development of micro grids, and to involve citizens in energy management with higher levels of responsibility. However, this context comes with potential pitfalls, such as vulnerabilities to cyber-security and privacy risks. In this article, a prospective study about energy management, and exploring critical issues of modeling of energy management systems in a context Smart. Grid is presented along with background of energy management systems. An analysis of the demand response condition is also presented. Finally, the advantages and disadvantages of the implementation of energy management systems, and a comparison with the Brazilian electricity system are discussed.
