Driver: Growing Adoption of Smart Grid Technologies

A significant part of the industrial utility communication market is dedicated to enabling smart grid technologies. Smart grids use advanced communication systems to monitor, control, and optimize the generation, distribution, and consumption of energy. These systems improve grid reliability, reduce energy losses, and support the integration of renewable energy sources. Utilities are increasingly investing in modernizing their infrastructure, including the implementation of smart grids. Smart grid technologies are being deployed by utility companies around the world to improve the efficiency and reliability of their power grids. Utility communication systems are essential for the successful deployment of smart grid technologies. In a December 2019 study focusing on the implementation of smart meters in the European Union (EU), some key findings were revealed, it is projected that approximately 225 million smart meters for electricity and 51 million for gas will be deployed across the EU by the year 2024. This ambitious rollout represents a potential investment totalling €47 billion (52.63 billion USD). By 2024, it is anticipated that nearly 77% of European consumers will have a smart meter for electricity, marking a significant increase in adoption. The Biden-Harris Administration has unveiled a historic $3.5 billion investment in America’s electric grid. This significant funding aims to bolster the electric grid infrastructure, enhance utility communication systems, promote the integration of clean energy sources, reduce operational costs, and create job opportunities within the utility sector.
