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. We calculate 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.
