+ Makes renewable power feasible
Smart grid systems can manage diverse and strategically scattered renewable power sources (wind farms, solar plants and hydro stations).
+ Optimizes the network
Direct communication with end-user equipment reduces consumption during peak periods and minimizes the need for costly standby power plants.
+ Handles increasing energy demand
Since the system is already strained to near capacity, smart grid improvements are crucial to support the long-term trend of stable electricity consumption growth.
+ Overhauls the ageing equipment
By updating the infrastructure, the safety standards continue to be met, power is delivered consistently, and the system is managed efficiently.
+ Facilitates real-time troubleshooting
With real-time data at hand, problem solving can begin immediately - this improves the network`s efficiency and reduces operational costs.
+ Enables electric vehicle charging
An increasing number of electric vehicle owners need a reliable, low-cost way to recharge anytime and anywhere, and a network able to handle their rising demand.
