China Smart Grid Market 

Market Overview

In 2016, China was the largest electricity consumer in the world. China has been facing serious environmental pollution causing from the fossil fuel as the chief source of energy supply. Thus, China has been shifting its strategies towards accommodating intermittent renewable energy, increasing efficiency, and cultivating energy saving. Over the years China has developed itself as the world largest smart grid market, and has been attracting Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) such as from General Electric, Siemens, ABB, and others. It is estimated that China over the next decade will invest USD 75.0 billion in smart grid infrastructure. In 2016, China smart grid market was 1/3rd of the global smart grid market. In 2014, announcement on Climate Change and Clean Energy Cooperation, to increase China’s total energy consumption to 20.0% by 2030 from zero-emission sources, such as from wind, solar, nuclear, and others has created opportunities for the energy and power industry players. The State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) that serves 88.3% area of China has their major focus on the Ultra High Voltage transmission to build a strong smart grid.

Goldstein Research analyst forecast that the China smart grid market size is set to reach USD 23.8 billion by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 19.25% over the forecast years. The computer networking, increasing investments in automated meters infrastructure to advance two-way communication, software development, government spending and more are some of the factors which triggers the growth of China smart grid market.

Smart Grid Market Trends, Drivers and Challenges

China is bringing in various policies for the power sector to increase the power generation from zero emission renewable resources. Nation is reducing the coal consumption for power generation, being the major source, which in turn pushing the use of renewable resources emitting zero carbon as well as on smart grid technologies and services. This government policy along with financial support creates huge opportunity for the smart grid industry players to expand their operation in China.

According to the report, major driving factor for the growth of smart grid market is the government investments in the modernization of China’s electricity infrastructure based on smart as well as strong power grids. Since 2014, China had smart meters tenders for 18.7 million units as one factor to make grids as smart and it has installed 30,000 km ultra-high voltage transmission line, making the grids strong.

However, high cost of infrastructure and infrastructural set-up time are the two major challenges for the smart grid industry players in China. Planning, dispatch, operation, and security of power grids to accommodate large amount of renewable energy into grids is a big task for the authorities to continuously monitor the assets. These requirements are beyond the capacity of traditional grids affecting the electricity supply as per demand from various sources.
