Telematics Update is launching Smart Grid Update to support the M2M industry within the growing energy space

Armed with this experience and expertise, Telematics Update is launching Smart Grid Update, a great new business that supports the challenges of the M2M industry within the growing energy space.

It’s been widely accepted that the electrical power network is antiquated and needs to be restructured to support growing energy demands. By enabling two way communications across the electric grid, power companies can better manage capacity while consumers can help curb demand. This new layer of intelligence, termed ‘Smart Grid’, requires a robust and secure core communication infrastructure.

Naturally, a few leading companies within the telematics space, see the benefits of extending their competence into this new market. Sprint, for instance, a leading service provider in the telematics space, now supports a wide range of utility automation initiatives by supplying embedded CDMA- & iDEN-based communication technologies.

Other well known companies such as CalAmp, a provider of wireless products, services and solutions, recently announced that it has teamed with KORE Telematics to develop a powerful wireless solution for Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and Smart Grid applications. Other giants including Vodaphone and Orange have also have spotted the synergies and great growth opportunities presented by the nascent smart grid technology industry.

However, as with any new industry, there are also challenges to overcome including regulatory incentives, interoperable standards development and security concerns. Smart Grid Update, will deliver relevant up-to-date business information to address those very challenges and push the industry forward.

‘There is going to be a lot of money spent on this industry. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act have earmarked billions of dollars for the development of a smart grid. The sooner the technologies can connect in a smart way, the sooner we meet the energy demands of the 21st century’, says Larry Fisher from ABI Research.

Smart Grid Update also launched the industry’s first ever technology focused business conference, the Smart Grid Technology Conference & Expo (2nd & 3rd June, San Diego, California). The high level event hosted by leading utility, San Diego Gas & Electric, brings together all the key stakeholders in the space to discuss the latest technologies, challenges, next generation concepts, winning partnerships, and much more
