Smart Grid: Closing the Gap Between Perception and Reality (Closing the Gap)
A significant gap exists between the popular perception of smart grid's potential and the practical constraints to this technology's success. Indeed, smart grid is considered one of the most possibly disruptive technologies facing the global power industry today. Government and industry have already begun to pour billions of dollars into smart grid investments in high expectation of the grid's potential even though the debate continues concerning its precise definition, scope and benefits. Many recognize that the first to gain insight into the real value of smart grid will be best positioned to seize the opportunities and avoid the pitfalls of ill-timed deployment.
To help our clients navigate this complex landscape, IHS CERA is launching the new multiclient study Smart Grid: Closing the Gap Between Perception and Reality. IHS CERA will lead an in-depth research effort aimed at uncovering the assumptions embedded in the Smart Grid Narrative and answering the key questions the narrative raises. In doing so, Closing the Gap offers a critical and realistic analysis of the future state of smart grid and provides the signposts to track the actual path that it will follow.
