Emerging Markets Smart Grid: Outlook 2015

Dublin, Dec. 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/jkwdhs/emerging_markets) has announced the addition of the "Emerging Markets Smart Grid: Outlook 2015" report to their offering.

Emerging Markets Smart Grid: Outlook 2015 is the fourth edition of its annual emerging markets smart grid overview. This study looks ahead over the next decade to project where smart grid investment will occur in developing countries. To-date, most smart grid investment has been concentrated in developed countries. This mainly includes countries in North America, Western Europe, and East Asia. These markets represent more than 88% of the current installed base of smart meters and many of the pioneering distribution automation, analytics, home energy management, and other smart grid initiatives.

But many countries in the rest of the developing world are positioning themselves to quickly catch up. The 50 countries in this study have all begun to explore smart grid deployments, and in many cases have advanced regulatory frameworks and extensive pilot projects in place. With GDP growth rates more than double those in the developed world (5.2% per year from 2014 - 2018) these 50 countries will have the funds available to undertake significant grid modernizations.
