A lack of standards has slowed, but not stopped, development of new technologies that would be essential for building the Smart Grid. Regulatory considerations, electric rate increases, government activities, and consumer acceptance are also significant factors in developing the Smart Grid and are addressed in the report. The manner in which these and other factors inhibit or advance deployment of the Smart Grid are described in detail.
Scope and Methodology
This report includes both primary and secondary research. Secondary research data have been obtained from government sources, trade association publications, business journals, and company literature. Statistical data are included for industry revenue, both globally and for the United States. The market size for Smart Grid technologies is projected from 2009 to 2014. Demand in each of the following technology applications is analyzed in terms of overall revenue for deploying the Smart Grid:
Potential Smart Grid applications, buying trends, environmental issues, and energy considerations are also reviewed and analyzed. Market size estimates and forecasts are based on government and secondary sources, and the impact of factors such as government grants and incentive, environmental concerns, fuel and energy prices, economic considerations, and housing and building trends.
