Smart grid technology combines traditional grid infrastructure with the
advantages of advanced internet technology, with the aim of improving the
efficiency of electricity supply as well as decreasing consumption by
providing real-time information. The global smart grid market is expected to
experience strong expansion during the following decade. However, the industry
faces two crucial issues which remain to be addressed in the coming years: the
merging of interoperability standards and more consistent integration of
renewable energy into the grid. Once those two obstacles have been resolved
large scale deployment of smart grid projects will become reality. Visiongain
calculates that global smart grid market in 2012 will total $33.91bn.
During the period 2012-2013, the smart grid market will be marked by shifting
from smart metering implementation to actual realisation of the grid
infrastructure. In addition, the goal of the regulators will be to promote
decarbonisation of the economy through implementation of smart grid
technology. Even though, in the short run the smart grid market will be
negatively influenced by the economic hardship in Europe as well as by the
slower growth in the emerging world, overall the industry is expected to
experience strong growth.
The report also describes the most important technological changes within the
smart grid industry and assesses their importance for the growth of the market
over the long-term. The various drivers and restraints of the market are
evaluated in order to provide readers with specific insights into the future
direction of the smart grid market.
