Smart Grid Technologies

Networking and Communications, Energy Management,

Grid Automation, and Advanced Metering Infrastructure

Smart Grid Technologies The electrical grid stands tall as a marvel of the 20th century, with high levels of reliability and the capability to deliver nearly ubiquitous electricity to the industrialized world. Widely available electricity has served as the foundation for numerous technological innovations that shape modern society. The grid is a highly complex network with millions of miles of distribution lines, yet despite the critical role it plays, there is relatively little intelligence within this network.

The key market motivators driving the Smart Grid buildout fall into four categories: improved reliability and security, improving operating efficiencies and costs, balancing power generation supply and demand, and reducing the overall electrical system's impact on climate change. Barriers to this transformation go well beyond pure technical and economic issues, including a lack of common vision and standards, outdated and fragmented business and regulatory models, and lack of awareness (and often trust) of the consuming public. However, government and industry bodies are coming together with urgency to drive the industry forward. The author forecasts that Smart Grid infrastructure, including grid automation upgrades as well as smart metering, represents a huge market opportunity and will attract $200 billion in worldwide investment between 2008 and 2015.

This research report analyzes the global market for Smart Grid technologies and applications, including advanced metering infrastructure, transmission upgrades, substation automation, distribution automation, energy management systems, and electric vehicle management, among others. The report examines utility business models, regulatory factors, technology issues related to smart grid networking and other areas, and the dynamics of end-user demand. It includes profiles and analysis of 70 key players in the rapidly evolving Smart Grid industry ecosystem, as well as detailed global market forecasts through 2015, segmented by region and application.

Key questions addressed:

* What is the definition of the Smart Grid from the perspectives of technology, functionality, and applications?

* What are the key policy, technology, and economic issues that will influence the development of the Smart Grid market?

* What are the key Smart Grid technologies, and how will they evolve?
