Smart Grid Overview:

With the advancement in technology, there is an immense increase in electrical energy demand that has become a challenge for its production and distribution. Urbanization and living standards have increased the demand for energy requirement. So this rising demand is growing the complexities of power grids by increasing requirements for greater reliability, efficiency, security, and energy sustainability concerns. Furthermore, there is a lack of monitoring and real-time control in traditional non-smart systems, which creates a challenging opportunity for smart grids to act as real-time solutions. The smart grid represents an unprecedented opportunity to move the energy industry into a new era of reliability, availability, and efficiency that will contribute to our economic and environmental health. As per IEA (International Energy Agency), in 2021, investment in electricity grids has increased significantly by 6%, with advanced countries such as the U.S. and China raising funds and facilitating the electrification of buildings, industry, and transportation as well as integrating variable renewable energy sources into the power grid.

Therefore, the current electrical system has some significant transmission losses, low power quality, a high risk of rolling blackouts, insufficient electricity supply, and many other barriers, further opening up an opportunity for new innovative smart grid technologies. The smart grid also employs digital communications technology to monitor and respond to local variations in use, enabling the network to self-heal after a power outage. Through different smart grid solutions, the grid then delivers an efficient and dependable electricity supply, benefiting the economy and the environment and fostering innovative smart grid technologies. In addition, smart grid solutions are being recognized by governments in both developing and rising countries as a strategic infrastructure investment that will aid in their long-term economic development and hence, help them meet their carbon emission objectives. However, a lack of energy accessibility, particularly in developing nations, inadequate regulations, and failed attempts to modernize and extend grid infrastructure are hindering the market for innovative smart grid technology.
