Research and Markets Offers Report: China Smart Grid Market Forecasts Report, 2016 [Health & Beauty Close - Up]

(Health & Beauty Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "China Smart Grid Market Forecasts Report, 2016" report to its offerings.

In a release, Research and Markets noted that report highlights include: One of the major drivers in this market is the increasing need for grid connection and management systems. In line with the Chinese government's plans, the SGCC and CSG are initiating steps to develop smart grids in China. The smart grid initiative of the SGCC, which commenced in 2011, will continue till 2020.


In recent years, the steadily growing population, higher living standards, and rapid industrialization have had a negative impact on the environment and the ecosystem. Consequently, the Chinese government has increased its focus on environmental issues such as GHG emissions and global warming. One of the major trends being witnessed in the Smart Grid market in China is the initiatives being taken by the government to reduce GHG. China has identified fossil fuel-based power generation as one of the major sources of GHG and has therefore induced various power plants to take steps to reduce these emissions. It has also shifted its focus to cleaner energy generation technologies. Consequently, an increase in investments in clean and RE power generation will boost the growth of the market since the RE sector is an integral part of the Smart Grid market in China.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the high susceptibility of smart grids to cyber attacks. The software used in smart grids is highly susceptible to the threat of virus attacks and mishandling by engineers or operators.

The main information control system in smart grids is exposed to security threats because of the regular usage of the internet and access through points for electrical and communication lines.

The key vendors dominating this market space are: -ABB Group -Alstom SA -GE Energy -Schneider Electric Co.

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
