Smart Grid in China

Smart Meters and Grid Automation Technologies: Development Plans,
Policy Trends, Key Industry Players, Market Analysis, and Forecasts

The development of a smart grid has become the major focus of power grid construction in China. Through the application of modern metrology, communications, information, and control technologies, the country’s power grid is undergoing a fundamental upgrade.

China’s smart grid development includes six key areas: power generation, transmission, transformation, distribution, consumption, and dispatching. The smart grid covers all voltage levels to achieve the optimum power flow, information flow, and business flow, along with a high degree of integration. China is currently in the second stage of its smart grid deployment, according to the State Grid Corporation of China. Lasting from 2011-2015, this is the full construction phase. Pike Research forecasts that cumulative smart grid revenue in China will reach $127 billion by 2020.
