Smart Grid

It is estimated by Pike Research that $200 billion will be invested in the Smart Grid by 2015. Utility customers face:

  • Changing supply from traditional and renewable generation sources (coal, gas, nuclear, solar, wind, hydro), energy storage and micro grid communities.
  • Changing demand with energy consumption growing as fast as generation facilities are being built.
  • Changing government reporting requirements with targeted objectives and goals.
  • Changing business concerns such as aging infrastructure, workforce and network architectures.

As more people bring utility electricity delivery systems into the 21st century, there will be many paths of migration to a smarter grid.
