Research and Markets: Global - Smart Grids - Overview 2008 Includes Analyses and Information on Global Smart Grid Activities, In

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/336499/global_smart_gri) has announced the addition of the "Global - Smart Grids - Overview 2008" report to their offering.

There has been a global underinvestment in utility infrastructure. It is dumb, outdated and in desperate need of an upgrade. The latest development is the concept of smart grids - an intelligent IP overlay over the electricity grid, with sensors and other equipment. This will allow utilities to much better manage their network, limit electricity loss, prevent outages, loadshed and provide customers with in-house information and tools (smart meters) to better manage their own energy use. In addition, utilities will be able to reduce their carbon emissions, which will offer interesting opportunities on the carbon trading market. This report provides an overview on Smart Grids including analyses and information on global smart grid activities, including a brief case study on two of the market leaders. For further analysis on environmental issues in relation to Smart Grids, see separate reports. Further information on BPL is also available from separate reports.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
