Electricity is an essential component in modern life and the economy, it has promoted the development of so-called industrial era over an extended period of time, and actual information era; however organisms such as WEC 1 , WWAP 2 and ONU SDG 3 consider the automation of the current power system model as an unsustainable energy system model for the 21st century because renewable energy sources alone will not be sufficient to meet the large increase of the energy demand and fulfill it in 2030. We are in the knowledge era, and it has said that 'artificial intelligence is the new electricity' [1]. This sets enormous challenges for implementation of a new model for the infrastructure, the acquisition and use of the smart electricity grid (Smart Grid) in Ecuador where power is required to be affordable, reliable and sustainable. It describes the current situation, and presents the status of implementation of this concept, to then be able to structure the foundations of a model based on artificial intelligence, with participation of each one of its actors, presenting the opportunity to carry the electricity power sector and the Ecuadorian society, a new era of development, sustainability, energy independence, efficiency and high availability.
