  Smart grid deployment can strongly be supported and enhanced by the expansion of 5G infrastructures as the latter can offer immense opportunities to enable better efficiency, observability and controllability of the power systems, especially at the distribution side where the numbers of monitoring devices and automation equipment exponentially increase. Among the fundamental context of the original Smart5Grid EU-funded project, we focus upon two selected use cases of significant interest for the corresponding energy vertical sector. These are the millisecond level precise distributed generation monitoring and the real-time wide are monitoring. Both use cases are described, conceptually assessed and evaluated as of their proposed services, their main business goals and their benefits in various sections, with specific emphasis given on the need for the inclusion of 5G facilities.
