ETSI Approves Open Smart Grid Protocol (OSGP) for Grid Technologies

ETSI Approves Open Smart Grid Protocol (OSGP) for Grid Technologies

ETSI has recently published two specifications for Smart Grid that will help drive the development and deployment of open, interoperable smart grid technologies internationally. As the smart grid evolves, it will become commonplace for utilities to cooperate with grid-aware systems and devices to reduce power usage intelligently, giving commercial, industrial and municipal users reduced rates in exchange for lower consumption while increasing grid reliability and the use of renewable energy sources. Automated demand response, peak load [...]

SEAI energy roadmaps point the way to a sustainable energy future for Ireland

SEAI energy roadmaps point the way to a sustainable energy future for Ireland

Future energy system could generate fuel import savings of up to €7.5 billion by 2050. The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) recently unveiled three energy roadmaps  to 2050 focusing on the potential benefits of Ireland moving to a future energy system where electricity, managed via a smart-grid, and increasingly generated by wind, meets more of the country’s energy needs, in particular for heat and transport.  The roadmaps, which are developed to inform energy policy in Ireland, demonstrate the potential to: [...]

Emerging Smart Meter Market Could Be Worth $49B

Emerging Smart Meter Market Could Be Worth $49B

Forget about the U.S., Europe, India and even China: the smart grid market is truly global, worth at least $27 billion and potentially $49 billion in emerging countries from Eastern Europe to Latin American to North Africa, according to a new study from Northeast Group. In nearly half of the 25 countries covered in the study, there are already smart grid deployments in the works in the next one to three years. These include Brazil, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Mexico, Poland, Romania, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, [...]

Common functionalities proposed for smart metering in Europe

Common functionalities proposed for smart metering in Europe

A minimum common set of functionalities for smart metering has been put forward by the European Commission with the aim of enabling member states to identify common means of achieving cost efficiencies (and inefficiencies) in their rollout plans. The functionality set, developed jointly by the European Commission’s directorates of Energy and Information Society and Media, comprises 10 functionalities. These were determined based on comments from member states in response to an initial list of 13 functionalities based on the ERGEG [...]

ABI Research Evaluates IEEE 802.15.4 IC Market

ABI Research Evaluates IEEE 802.15.4 IC Market

Predicts revenues to exceed $1.1 Billion in 2016. According to ABI Research, the IEEE 802.15.4 IC market will grow to over $1.1 billion in 2016—up from just $90 million in 2010. Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is still a key adoption market and there is significant impetus behind the continuation of this market. Some concerns have been raised around mass deployments ahead of IP support and the planned ZigBee Smart Energy 2.0, but recent announcements by ZigBee to migrate its portfolio of profiles into IP-based solutions [...]
