The so-called "Smartgrid" represents an electrical grid that uses information and communications technology to gather and act on information. It is expected to bring dramatic improvements to everything from general network management to demand response and other demand-side improvements. Ultimately it will help the supply-side as new technologies are implemented that facilitate more efficient utilities. A new energy value chain is emerging as a result of new technologies, new players, and new regulatory environments that encourage competitive markets. This research package represents a comprehensive bundle of research addressing the convergence of telecom and smartgrid including support for both supply side and demand side energy management. Solutions and technologies covered include LTE, M2M, consumer/enterprise handsets and management, and more.
