The scope of Smart Grid ICT complexity and required bandwidth are currently only generically outlined. The report shows that despite of the current perception to consider this type of communications as low-bandwidth, in reality it may require many millions of new communications channels with the speed of transmission in Mb/s. This can create a serious problem in already congested RF spectrum. The industry is working to resolve such a problem; and responds with new technologies that can utilize unused spectrum (for example, TV White Space -TVWS) as well as cognitive radio.

The objectives of this report were to show the role of ICT in the support of the Smart Grid infrastructure; and introduce some trends in the ICT development.

Particular, the report addresses the following:

Section I -Introduction. It explains the major Smart Grid goals and provides examples of developments.

Section II – Provides detailed Smart Grid background. The activities of multiple Smart Grid associations and industry organizations are covered.

Section III – Provides marketing and technological analysis of the Smart Grid ICT; industry characteristics and Smart Meters READ MORE >
