Global smart grid investment is likely to grow rapidly. By 2025, a complete transformation to a smarter grid is unlikely but the process would have gained pace with major changes underway in grid automation, demand-side management, and Big Data analytics. Revenue growth will be the fastest in Europe. Demand response and advanced metering infrastructure will be key applications. Till 2025, the share of distribution grid management will continue to be the highest but demand response and advanced transmission technologies will grow the fastest. Cloud services are already encouraging X-as-a-service business model, making it the norm for offering software and services in 2025. This study makes key predictions for the smart grid industry in 2025.
