Global Smart Grid Technology Market by Software Technology, Hardware Components, Service Offered and Forecast 2017 to 2025


Smart Grid Technology Market

Smart Grid technology is a generic term used with respect to application of Internet of things (IoT) contrary to the traditional electricity distribution system. The unidirectional communication possesses by the traditional electricity distribution system made it difficult to analyse the dynamic energy requirements of the customer. This issue could be addressed with the adoption of smart grid technology. Smart Grid tends to improve the performance of the distribution system with the help of bi-directional communication between the components in the grid. For achieving this efficiency smart grid technology makes use of distributed control, automation and energy equipment working together. The integrated automation allows the bi-direction communication between the components, sensing and measurement technologies for the analysis of energy requirement, automated controls allows the distribution of energy to the customer.


Market Growth Factors:

Increased investment by the private organizations and favourable government policy forms the major factor in propelling the market. For instance: On January, 2018 Itochu corporation has signed partnership with Moixa, smart grid firm for the expansion of its grid-share platform in Japan and made an investment of 5 million euro for the project. High voltage direct current is the electrical power transmission system used for the supply of current over the long distance with minimum loss proves to be an efficient solution thus propelling the smart grid market. For instance: On February, 2018 Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPC) and GE Power has signed $320 million contract with the aim of delivering 4 GW HVDC to power South Korea’s Seoul City.
