In 2014 there is a much better understanding of the concept of the smart grid and few energy companies would now embark on isolated smart meter rollouts; however some still continue to do so. It has become increasingly clear that smart grids are able to transform the energy industry, and that a much broader group of industries are also affected by this including IT, telecoms, white goods, renewables, management consultants, storage, transport, etc.

The electricity grid is becoming the enabler in all these changes, and by making it an intelligent grid and adding telecoms to it, the power will shift away from the electricity companies to the customers and the appliances that will be developed will assist this process; some of that on a M2M basis using networked sensors and SCaDa technology. Another term being used for these broader developments is the Internet of Things (IoT).
This BuddeComm report is designed to provide a current smart grid market overview as well as insightful observations supported by statistics and examples, which may assist investors, analysts and industry participants in making investment and business decisions.
