Smart Grid Technology Market Will Reach $73 Billion in Annual Revenue by 2020

Smart Grid Technology Market Will Reach $73 Billion in Annual Revenue by 2020

Although the market for smart grid technologies is already established, representing more than $33 billion in revenue in 2012, it has grown with little contribution from a number of countries with populations greater than 100 million, and with almost no activity in Africa, with its population of 1 billion. This suggests that the market is likely to continue robust growth for the foreseeable future. According to a recent report from Navigant Research, the market for smart grid technologies will reach $73 billion in annual revenue by the end [...]

South America Smart Grid Market: $49.8bn by 2023

South America Smart Grid Market: $49.8bn by 2023
