The 5G network innovations aim to enable massive capacity, zero delay, faster service development, flexibility, elasticity and optimal deployment, less energy consumption, enhanced security, privacy by design and connectivity to billions of devices with less predictable traffic patterns. Many application areas, such as smart cities, e-health, intelligent transport, education or entertainment & media, have been proposed to demonstrate the 5G potential. Among them, one of the most challenging is the smart energy vertical, from Energy auto-configuration and Demand-Response to preventive maintenance of transmission and distribution electricity network. NRG-5 is a project that has received financial support by the European Commission to analyze the smart energy requirements from the 5G network and provide solutions towards 5G architecture. This paper presents the NRG-5 network architecture extensions to 5G-PPP Architectural Group work on 5G Network Architecture

This work is part of the NRG-5 project which has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 762013.
