The start of energy reformation in China has introduced a huge opportunity for the improvement and reorganization of the energy structure. As the reformation of energy system is going further, there are currently different views on the future energy structure and “Internet + energy”. In this article, a review is presented on the development history from the smart energy system to Energy Internet at home and abroad. The current status of the development of the Energy Internet is also interpreted. Then authors demonstrate their own understanding on Energy Internet and the importance of energy system reformation. In the future, the energy structure will be consisted of basic Energy Internet and higher levels of Energy Internet, with spirits of more openness, equality, interactivity and sharing. Human oriented is the original point of Energy Internet. Internet will provide tools to optimize all segments of energy system and finally benefits every customer with “best” energy service. More renewable energy is expected to be accommodated in the Energy Internet, with the important assistance from distributed energy on modulating and backup. The role of distributed energy systems will be highlighted for their important function in the future energy structure. As representing advanced productivity, the Energy Internet is expected to solve current energy problems, create a new field of energy service and help with the economic transformation in China.
