The electric power grid has served us well for the past years. However, they are not designed to meet thedemand of the future needs including the ever-rising energy demand, integration of the micro generationwith the grid, reliability and security. Therefore, recently, an efficient electric energy system called theSmart Grid (SG) has been proposed as the next-generation electrical power system technology thatembraces advanced communications technologies and ubiquitous computing capabilities in every aspectof electricity generation, transmission, distribution and consumption. The core component of the SG is acommunication networks which comprises a variety of wireless communication technologies. In thispaper, we present a survey on the interference issues in the SG communication network specifically theHome Area Network (HAN) utilizing low-power based wireless technology in enabling the DemandResponse (DR) and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) functionalities. We also discuss the currentproposed methods in mitigating, avoiding and dealing with the interference problem. Finally, we discussthe utilization of cognitive radio based technique as a promising method in solving the interferenceproblem and in enabling optimal communication service for Smart Grid HAN (SG-HAN).
