"An important question—not only whether the transmission grid should be reinforced or not—is also how this power exchange layer has to look like and how it can be developed from the present situation. Two models are plausible: the Camel Model and the Dromedary Model. The Camel model envisages a power exchange between the transmission and distribution grid over a relatively light weight medium-voltage network, mainly for backup purposes because of the before mentioned local use and balancing. Alternatively, the Dromedary model assumes that both the large-scale transmission system and the local mini and microgrids are connected firmly to each other, via a well-developed and strong medium-voltage network to enable power flows from the bottom up."
