Next big smart grid growth opportunity: Think smart cities (and think Asia) | Smart Grid News

Next big smart grid growth opportunity: Think smart cities (and think Asia) | Smart Grid News | eengenious | Scoop.it

I couldn't have said it better myself. "Smart cities and communities are a towering market opportunity for companies in the smart grid value chain," asserts a new Zpryme report that sizes the opportunity in Asia. Although Europe currently holds the lead in both market and mind share, Asia is coming on strong. China is increasingly turning to smart city technologies to manage its massive urbanization wave. And Japan and Korea have both spotted smart cities as an important upgrade to quality of life that can also lead to export revenues. As a result, the Asia smart city market will explode from $55.6 billion in 2013 to $260.0 billion in 2020.

 

And guess what -- a smart grid is an essential foundation for a smart city. That's one reason I've helped to start the Smart Cities Council, an industry coalition dedicated to lowering the barriers to adoption. Our early members including smart grid stalwarts such as Cisco, GE, IBM, Itron, Microsoft and S&C Electric, not to mention utilities such as EDF and National Grid.

Jared Orth's curator insight, May 14, 2014 3:54 PM

I think they are useful but there needs to be a regulation on them.

Andrew Beighley's comment, May 18, 2014 8:05 PM
I think that drones can be very useful to us, but they can also be very dangerous if bad people get ahold of them or use them for bad things. I think that if the police are using them to track down criminals, that is a good use, but if criminals are using them to scout areas where they could commit crimes, that could be very bad. There needs to be laws that limit what they can be used for.
