“The innovation of the smart grid has been led by US firms, and will continue to be, as favorable international trade agreements will encourage innovation, as well as create competitive advantage based on their successes and strengths of deployment efforts to date. “Companies such as Trilliant, SUBNET Solutions, AT&T, Freescale Semiconductor, Cooper Power Systems, and S&C Electric Company that were included in this report are helping expand the length of the smart grid tentacles to enhance both the U.S. and nations around the globe long-term energy efficiency.”
2013 will build on the experience and successes of smart grid deployments to date. Wide-scale European deployment will continue at a rapid rate until 2020 due to the EU directives and the time line they established. In the US, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and other incentives will expire in 2013. Utilities will either utilize profits to pay for further improvements, or improvements are likely to stall without further assistance. China's efforts have been guided by 5 year plans, which will continue to guide deployment efforts in the foreseeable future. These improvements will continue to focus on improving efficiency and reliability of the Chinese grid. Brazil will also continue to advance its smart grid deployment, but a lack of binding authority on deployment by governmental agencies will prevent widespread efforts. However, other countries in Asia and South America will continue to observe deployment efforts by their larger counterparts before committing to making improvements. Over the next 5 years, favorable trade agreements in these areas, such as those enacted by APEC and through NATO, will encourage deployments in these areas.
