Smart Grid as a Service Market Size, Segmentation, Opportunities, Trends, Growth and Industry Forecast To 2022


A smart grid refers to an electrical grid system comprising various smart sensing devices, smart appliances, and smart meters. It is a network of sensors connected using wireless technology to monitor the energy supply and consumption, state of grid elements, and demand response. The network is designed to collect huge amounts of data to further analyze it (using data analytics solutions) to gain better operational efficiency. Smart grid as a service refers to accessing data analytics solutions using a hosted cloud. The deployment of smart grid networks is expanding rapidly across the U.S., Western Europe, China, and others. Amongst these, the U.S. and China are the leading investors in smart grid and data analytics solutions and hence are expected to emerge as the largest markets for smart grid as a service in the coming years.

Due to ever rising demand for electricity worldwide, it becomes highly essential to ensure the optimum use of produced electricity. As a result, the demand for data analytics solutions is estimated to witness strong demand in the coming years. Nevertheless, the on-premise deployment of these solutions becomes enormously costly for utility providers. Smart grid as a service enables utility providers to utilize data analytics solutions through cloud-based service. Since these solutions are way cheaper as compared to the on-premise solutions, the adoption of smart grids as a service is estimated to surge substantially during the forecast period. Additionally, with the rising adoption of cloud services across various sectors, the smart grid as a service market is expected to register high growth during the forecast period.
