Worldwide Smart Meter Shipments Fell by 15% in the First Quarter of 2012 as North American Programs Wind Down

Worldwide Smart Meter Shipments Fell by 15% in the First Quarter of 2012 as North American Programs Wind Down

After a relatively frantic acceleration period from 2009 to 2011, the smart meter market is cooling off. This was inevitable: the fast pace of deployments was never going to be sustained, and the market is returning to a more normal clip, with certain areas still poised for growth. According to a new tracker report from Pike Research, global shipments of smart meters fell to 15.1 million units in the first quarter of 2012, a 15% decline from the fourth quarter of 2011. Year-over-year, that represents a 14% drop from the same period in [...]

Worldwide smart meter shipments grow 28.8% year over year in Q1 2012

Worldwide smart meter shipments grow 28.8% year over year in Q1 2012

The global smart meter industry shipped nearly 7 million meters in the first quarter of 2012, with shipments up 28.8 percent year over year, according to IDC Energy Insights' latest Worldwide Quarterly Smart Meter Tracker. Further, shipments are projected to grow 111.3 percent on an annual basis from 2011 to the end of 2012. However, while growth in smart metering will continue to surge as utilities around the world replace aging, outdated, or non-existent infrastructure, obstacles remain in the path towards the universal adoption of [...]

The Smart Grid in Asia Valued at US$8.5 Billion

The Smart Grid in Asia Valued at US$8.5 Billion

The cumulative smart grid technology markets of China, Japan, and South Korea are currently valued at nearly US$8.5 billion, with GTM Research forecasting that value to grow to $19 billion by 2016. China represents 70% of the Asia smart grid market, offering some of the broadest market opportunities to smart grid players in Asia. Japan and South Korea represent 20% and 10% respectively. While evolving rapidly, it is important to note that each market's growth will be characterized by the specific needs of their utilities and [...]

Almost one third of U.S. households now have smart meters

Almost one third of U.S. households now have smart meters

As of May 2012, almost one-in-three U.S. households now have a smart meter, up from about one-in-four households in September 2011, according to a new report from the Institute for Electric Efficiency (IEE). By mid-decade, more than half the households in the country will have a smart meter, the IEE projects. The report Utility Scale Smart Meter Deployments, Plans, & Proposals, finds that as of May 2012, 36 million smart meters had been installed in the U.S. This number is expected to increase to 65 million smart meters by 2015, [...]

Annual Smart Grid Spending to Reach $65 Billion by 2017

Annual Smart Grid Spending to Reach $65 Billion by 2017

Annual global spending on smart grid technologies, including smart meter implementations, as well as upgrades to transmission and distribution infrastructure, is expected to reach $65 billion by 2017. Much of the electricity infrastructure in operation today is antiquated, highly inefficient, and cannot reliably manage the loads of today and tomorrow without significant upgrades taking place. With climate change high on the political agenda and utilities keen to increase operational efficiencies, there is an obvious and pressing need for a [...]

Online tool to help consumers save money on energy bills launched in U.S.

Online tool to help consumers save money on energy bills launched in U.S.

The U.S. Energy Department has launched an interactive web platform, the Utility Data Access Map tool, which enables electric utilities across the country to show consumers the data they can access on their electricity use. Currently, DOE has received responses from more than 500 participating utilities. Responses from other utilities are currently being solicited. Many consumers don't have enough data or are not aware of the data they can access to make informed decisions about energy efficiency measures they could take to save [...]

Strong case for smart grid in U.K., report finds

Strong case for smart grid in U.K., report finds

The initial investment case for moving ahead with smart grid development sooner rather than later in the U.K. appears very strong with the benefits far outweighing the risks, according to a new report. Further, the timely creation of a smart grid can unlock significant benefits in other industries, providing a welcome boost to growth, jobs and exports. Between 8,000 and 9,000 jobs are projected, sustained through the 2020s and ’30s. The report Smart Grid: a race worth winning? was prepared for SmartGrid GB by Ernst & Young and [...]

New Power-Grid Authentication and Encryption Technology by MerlinCryption Secures Industrial-Control Systems Against Tampering and Espionage

New Power-Grid Authentication and Encryption Technology by MerlinCryption Secures Industrial-Control Systems Against Tampering and Espionage

As top U.S. Intelligence officials debate concerns about growing vulnerabilities of America’s power-grid and advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), MerlinM2M delivers encrypted authentication protection for energy providers and end-users. “Having a good firewall still leaves the smart-grid at risk,” warns Paul “Prem” Sobel, CTO MerlinCryption LLC, “Cloners can defraud IP addresses and other protocol methods to force a system shutdown and infiltration. The MerlinM2M Security Platform’s triple-layer security process not [...]
