The report identifies and quantifies all sensor-related opportunities related to the Smart Grid. This includes not only energy monitoring and load balancing sensors. Security monitoring and equipment inspection are also part of the story. In addition, coverage of the energy monitoring aspect of the market includes conventional electrical sources as well as sensors for load balancing for alternative energy. We also examine the markets for Smart-Grid-related sensors and sensor systems that are used both by power companies and in buildings including specialist sensors that are being developed for grid applications, such as those that are capable of rapid analysis of anomalies in electricity quality over very large geographic areas.

  • 1. Sensors for the Smart Grid: Market Opportunities 2010Published By: NanoMarkets LCPublished:May 2011Product Code: NanoMarkets LC1039Report SummarySensors for the Smart Grid: Market Opportunities 2010 – Much of the literature on smartgrid makes the point that the smart grid will use lots of “advanced sensors.” Sensors areintrinsic to advanced metering applications, for example. As a result we believes that theemerging Smart Grid will create important new markets for sensors over the comingdecade. Giant firms such as AT&T are already creating units to tap into this opportunity andthis report indentifies where all the new business revenues in Smart Grid sensors will becoming from. It will be essential reading for product managers, marketers and businessdevelopment executives at sensor firms, networking companies, advanced materials andsoftware companies and all businesses involved with the emerging smart grid.Buy Now: Sensors MarketBrowse All: Market Research ReportsThe report identifies and quantifies all sensor-related opportunities related to the SmartGrid. This includes not only energy monitoring and load balancing sensors. Securitymonitoring and equipment inspection are also part of the story. In addition, coverage of theenergy monitoring aspect of the market includes conventional electrical sources as well assensors for load balancing for alternative energy. We also examine the markets for Smart-Grid-related sensors and sensor systems that are used both by power companies and inbuildings including specialist sensors that are being developed for grid applications, such asthose that are capable of rapid analysis of anomalies in electricity quality over very largegeographic areas.As with all our reports, this report contains a granular eight-year forecast and it alsoincludes an assessment of the strategies of the leading players in this space as well theactivities of the major standards organizations and their role in creating a smart sensorfriendly grid ecosystem. The report also discusses the differences in the Smart Grid sensormarket among the major industrialized countries of the world.Table Of ContentsE.1 Opportunities for Sensors in the Smart GridE.1.1 Energy Monitoring and Equipment Monitoring Applications for SensorsE.1.2 Sensors for Load Balancing for Alternative Energy SourcesE.1.3 Sensors for Energy Storage Requirements in Smart GridsE.2 Near- and Long-Term Opportunities for Sensors in the Smart GridE.3 Key Firms to Watch in the Smart-Grid Energy Sensor SpaceE.4 Implications of Emerging Interoperability Standards and Security IssuesE.5 Summary of Forecasts
