Smart Grids: Technical, Commercial and Business Drivers

A Smart Grid includes a variety of operation and energy measures, including smart meters, smart appliances, renewable energy resources, and energy efficient resources. Smart Grids offer promise for driving sustainable energy transition, and a combination of technology and energy management skills will lead to a transformation that realizes multiple benefits for consumers, the environment, the energy industry, and Thailand as a whole. The rising demand of electrical energy poses a great challenge for the production, distribution and transmission of energy to the users. This demands greater reliability, efficiency, improved security, reduced costs to the consumers, energy savings, reduce technical losses and environmental energy sustainable concerns. The smart features of technology for the production, distribution and transmission of electricity resulted in the Smart Grid technology which opens the opportunity to address those challenges.
