Based on concepts of knowledge management and learning organizations, the paper develops guiding principles for designing intelligent knowledge infrastructures within companies adopting smart grid technologies. The case study of intelligent SASensor technology, which is currently being introduced by the Dutch power network administrator Alliander, provides an illustration of the argument.
