China's Smart Grid Market

Develop strong smart grid technology standards by the national grid system planning, clear strong smart grid standards roadmap, was the world's first programmatic standards that guide the development of smart grid technology. State grid Corporation plans, by the year 2015 has built information, automated, interactive features strong smart grid, to form a North, Central, East end, Northwest, northeast power network for the sending of three synchronous power grid, grid resource allocation, economic efficiency, safety, technology and intelligent level upgrade.

(1) the inevitable trend in the development of the smart grid is a grid technology. Communication, computer, automation, and other technologies are used widely in power applications, and integration with traditional power technology, which greatly improves the intelligence level of the grid. Sensor technology and the application of information technology in power network for system analysis and decision support provides technical support, make it possible to network self healing. Scheduling technology, automation technology, and development of flexible transmission technology, for the development and utilization of renewable energy sources and distributed generation to provide basic security. Communication network improvement and application of information technology, promoting interaction between the grid and the user. With further development, application of new technologies and highly integrated with the physical power, smart grid came into being.

(2) to develop smart grid is the inevitable choice of social and economic development. To achieve clean energy development, transportation, and to dissolve, the grid must enhance its flexibility and compatibility. To resist the increasingly frequent natural disasters and external interference, power must rely on intelligent methods are constantly improving their security defenses and healing powers. In order to reduce operating costs and promote energy saving and emission reduction, power to be more cost-efficient and intelligent control of electrical equipment to minimize power consumption. Distributed power generation, energy storage technologies, and the rapid development of electric vehicles, changing the traditional mode of power supply, the power flow, information flow, workflow integration, in order to meet increasingly diverse user needs.
