Disrputive Technology for The Advanced Smart Grid

Jun 07, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Disrputive Technology for The Advanced Smart Grid" report to their offering.

Led by major smart grid deployments currently taking place across the world, the grid will be primed for the deployment of disruptive technologies by 2020. Most of the technologies in this report are at the very early stages of development with respect to their adoption among utilities. However, some of them have the potential to revolutionize the entire electric industry as we know it today.

To get there, billions of private, public, and corporate R&D dollars will be needed to decouple the centralized electric grids that exist today. In addition, a coordinated vision and coalition of likeminded entrepreneurs, engineers, scientists, governments and consumers will also be needed.

The goal of this report, developed by Zpryme's Smart Grid Insights Research Team and Smart Grid Advisory Board, is to provide insight into the emerging technologies that need to be further developed in order to build a more sustainable, agile, and eco-friendly grid. This report is not intended to be an exhaustive review of the technologies mentioned in this report.

Key Takeaways by the Numbers Seventy-two percent of smart grid and utility executives identified nano-generation/nano-grids as the top disruptive technology to impact utilities and electrical systems in the next 10 years.

Advanced grid automation and switching, advanced data communications, dynamic energy management, and ultra-high voltage transmission (Super Grids) were ranked second through fifth, respectively.

Wireless electricity, ultra-fast EV charging, battery powered homes, utility-telco-cable-internet integration, and digital power conversion were ranked sixth through tenth, respectively.

By 2020, the aggregate annual global market value of the top 10 disruptive technologies is estimated to reach $60.7 billion. The technologies with the most potential, in terms of market value, are ultra-high voltage transmission (Super Grids), advanced grid automation and switching, advanced data communications, and dynamic energy management.
