Archived report. This report was archived in 2009 and has not been updated. Because of Climate Change and CO2 issues the utilities around the world are in a race to upgrade their decades old infrastructure to make it more intelligent (ie smart grids). In this process they are moving away from looking at broadband as a new revenue stream (BPL) and all their energy is now focused internally with their telco skills being used to upgrade their networks for internal (smart grid) purposes.
The utilities which are anticipating these developments are embracing the concept of an end-to-end solution in the total energy chain. This report includes BuddeComm’s analyses of smart grids in terms of energy savings and the environment. For an overview of Smart Grids, see separate report.
As usual, you’ve done a splendid job of bringing an industry well and truly into the spotlight.
I think that without your input and passion, Australia would have barely scratched the surface of the benefits that can and will be achieved with the wholesale adoption of Smart Grid and Smart City concepts.
