Autonomic computing is a bio-inspired vision elaborated to manage the increasing complexity of
contemporary heterogeneous, large scale, dynamic computer systems. This paper presents a series of scenarios relative to micro smart grids – district-size “smart” electricity networks. These scenarios involve situations where autonomic management approaches could provide promising solutions. They therefore appear as short stories of a possible autonomic micro smart grid, that illustrate the concepts of autonomic computing as well as the potential behind this vision.

At the same time, these scenarios reveal open issues as well as novel perspectives on the future of micro smart grids.
