This smart utility network market is a culmination of different but largely interconnected segments, viz., smart meter/ advance metering infrastructure (AMI), smart consumer applications, and grid level applications. The total smart utility network market is forecasted to grow by a CAGR of below 10% from 2015 to 2020. Only the smart consumer applications segment is expected to account for a double-digit growth over this period.

The concept of a “smart utility network” does not end with the design and implementation of a smart grid system in a country. Power utilities in every country must understand that the smartening of the power grid system is considered an evolutionary process that requires considerable effort from both technology and regulatory standpoints.

This study focuses on the following important elements under the 3 broad segments that determine the direction and future of smart utilities:

• Smart Meter/ AMI:
o Smart Meters
o Communication
o Meter Data Management System
o Installation

• Smart Consumer Applications:
o Demand Response
o Energy Monitoring/Management
o EV Charging Infrastructure
o Distribution Self-generation

• Grid Level Applications:
o Smart Distribution Management
o Renewable Energy Integration
o Energy Storage Systems
o Advanced Transmission Technologies
o Software & Communication Technology

Drivers and restraints are discussed in each of the 3 main market segments. In addition, top predictions to 2025 of the global smart grids market are presented.

Under smart meter/AMI, key information includes a meter communication infrastructure overview, an AMI development outlook and technology roadmap, and an overview beyond meter data management (MDM), and meter data analytics (MDA).

Trends discussed in the smart consumer applications segment include regional hotspots in solar PV, demand response, and an overview of the energy management market. Topics discussed under the grid level applications segment encompass hotspots in renewable energy, advanced inter-regional market developments, and grid-level energy storage.

In addition, this study also features the key and emerging market trends in Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Myanmar in Southeast Asia. Other regions include Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, and New Zealand.

Key Questions This Study Will Answer:
1.     What are the key challenges currently faced by power utilities?
2.     What are the growth rates and key takeaways or impacts to market participants in the 3 broad segments?
3.     What is the future of Asian utilities as smart grid technology continues to flourish globally?
4.     What are the market and development directions of key sub-segments such as smart meters, renewable energy, and energy storage?
5.     Which are the potent countries for smart grids and utilities development?
