Smart Grid opportunities for telcos

New business models in the electricity market of the future for telcos

Existing electricity grids are not capable of satisfying the increasing demand for a reliable electricity supply in the long run. The growing proportion of decentralised electricity generation based on renewables is making electricity transport and distribution significantly more complex, yet the existing electricity network, which in many cases originates from the middle of the last century, is reaching its capacity and capability limits. A “Smart Grid” – one that links innovative information and communication technologies with traditional electricity components – will deliver intelligent and highly automated grid maintenance and management. New business models and emerging players will change the rules of the game!
