Current Trends and Future Developments
This smart grid report analyses the global smart grid market place now and the smart grid forecasts for the future. It concludes that in recent years the smart grid has gained a lot of column inches as the panacea for all the problems with the current electrical power grid system. The old grid system was designed for one-way flow of information and electricity from power plants to consumers. Where consumers are billed for electricity usage based on estimates of consumption regardless of the actual usage and according to time of day. This electrical power grid is not designed for the integration of large scale intermittent renewable capacity, or for small-scale distributed renewable capacity such as rooftop solar panels and small scale wind turbines. There is therefore a demand for a new grid system to meet the demands of the 21st century.

Smart Grid Security
A major barrier identified in smart grid technology is smart grid security. Studies on the smart meters deployed have found that few have sufficient encryption software and therefore can easily be corrupted. Creating a large market for companies involved in the cyber security business, notably companies involved in security for the defence sector.

Smart Grid’s Rapid Repair
Using our in-depth smart grid data and forecasts on smart grid companies and technology we have found that despite the security challenges and other barriers, large scale installation of smart grids is likely. Not only for the reasons above, but also because they enable rapid identification of faults in the grid system and enable rapid repair (through the two-way flow of information). Currently power cuts in the grid system take time to repair and are extremely costly for businesses. Therefore, the large costs of implementation of a smart grid system are largely outweighed by the long-term cost savings.
