The MicroGrid concept using renewable energy sources is a building block towards the future energy networks for long-term viable solution of energy needs. The focus of the paper is centred around the encountered and foreseen issues, enabling technologies and economics for encouraging the deployment of MicroGrids in India. This paper presents state-of-the-art issues and feasible solutions associated with the deployment of MicroGrid technologies leading to the conceptualization of efficient and smart MicroGrids. The role of enabling technologies, automation and communication for sustainable development of MicroGrids is also explained here.
