Global Smart Grid Market is anticipated to cross USD 70 Billion by 2024, as reported in the latest study by Global Market Insights, Inc. Ambitious government led plans toward grid modernization will drive the smart grid market size. Major countries have enforced regulations and mandates to reinforce smart grid deployments and R&D activities as a part of their energy conservation initiatives. In 2016, global investments in digital electricity infrastructure reached over USD 45 billion to enhance the resiliency, reliability, and security of the grid. Increasing government focus toward grid restructuring to mitigate integration challenges, overutilization, and load mismatch will further boost the industry growth.
The U.S. smart grid market was estimated over USD 3 billion in 2017. Frequent blackouts and the incessant need for energy conservation will augment the industry landscape. Implementation of grid automation programs to reinforce communication flexibility and distributed intelligence of the national power infrastructure will further fuel the industry growth. For instance, the Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) invested USD 69 million in 2017 to boost consumer energy efficiency through smart thermostat and residential data analytics programs.
