With a better understanding of the complexity involved in the transformation of the electricity industry the words smart energy' are becoming more prominent. BuddeComm believes that the term smart grids' is too narrow and that eventually smart energy' will become the accepted terminology, especially once the communications developments in national broadband networks and mobile broadband start to converge with smart grid developments.

Smart energy signifies a system that is more integrated and scalable, and which extends through the distribution system, from businesses and homes and back to the sources of energy. A smarter energy system has sensors and controls embedded into its fabric. Because it is interconnected there is a two-way flow of information and energy across the network, including information on pricing. In addition to this it is intelligent, making use of proactive analytics and automation to transform data into insights and efficiently manage resources.

This links with the telecoms development known as M2M or the internet of things' (IOT). For this to happen various functional areas within the energy ecosystem must be engaged consumers; business customers; READ MORE >
