Feb. 21, 2011 - PRLog -- The influx of recent smart grid investments is a result of smart systems technology reaching a point where significant commercialization is possible, according to a new report Smart Power System: Smart Grids, Smart Meters, Home Controllers, Home Automation and Energy Efficiency -

2010 is the year in which smart grid technology moved off the drawing board and out of the academic journals, and into large-scale commercial development. Worldwide smart grid investment is led by two major powers, the United States and China, each applying different business and political models to the development of intelligent grids.

This report “Smart Grids, Smart Meters, Home Controllers, Home Automation and Energy Efficiency” explores the development of intelligent grid systems, examining the smart grid technologies being developed, the rationale for development, and details intelligent grid international investments.

Until recently, the smart grid – or intelligent grid -- has been a theoretical approach to electricity supply and production management. The implementation of smart grid technology solves a number of issues that affect the current aging grid infrastructure. First, tt turns power grids upside down, changing them from centralized entities into distributed grids with multiple points of redundancy and layered back-up facilities. It permits efficiencies by applying far greater automation and control not only to the supply of power, but to its consumption as well. And it  allows the incorporation of renewables into national and even international grids, by managing input from local power generation relative to needs and distributed power supply.
