Abstract—The increase in network communication is rapidly nowadays. This increasing involves several issues that can affect the performance of the entire network. Many studies adopted the concept of green communication as a solution to the environmental problems in communication networks, especially in the section of reducing the CO2 emission. In this paper, a study of the challenges of green communication in the smart grid has been reviewed. Moreover, cognitive networks and network coding in the last ten years are presented. The study also produces the opportunities of green communication as a solution to overcome the environmental communication problems.

Index Terms—Smart grid, network coding, cognitive network, CRPS, NGERS
