Global - Electricity Market


Archived report. This report was archived in November 2004 and has not been updated. Utilities have a dire need for increased communications due to industry deregulation, which is on the verge of changing the way that utilities conduct business. Power utilities around the world are recognising the natural competitive advantage they have in telecommunications. It is a natural extension of business activity for a power company to enter into telecommunications. This report concentrated on the latest developments in the electricity market and some of the core utilities applications such as Automated Meter Reading (AMR) and other Demand Side Management Applications. These are key drivers for the utilities to expand further into other commercial telco markets.
