Research and Markets: Smart Grid and Smart Phones Putting Energy Management in the Hands of Consumers and Enterprise

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Smart Grid and Smart Phones Putting Energy Management in the Hands of Consumers and Enterprise" report to their offering.

As Smart Grid applications are deployed we will see decrease in the energy needs with 12% by 2030. However, this is not enough as there is a need for increased power supply. The primary reasons to increase worldwide energy efficiency can be grouped into four main factors:

Worldwide energy consumption is growing due to population growth and increased energy use per capita in both developed and developing countries

Fossil fuel resources are finite, and the cost to extract and utilize these resources in an environmentally-benign manner is becoming increasingly expensive

A dependence on non-domestic energy supplies compromises national security for many nations

There is an increasing perception that the environment is suffering as a result of resource extraction, conversion, and utilization

This report focuses on smartgrid issues, the need for more efficient management systems, greater capacity and the role of smartphone based applications in supporting both supply-side and demand-side issues.
