To be Smarter after Strong – Smart Grid is Moving to Comprehensive Construction Phase in China

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

China has surpassed the United States to become the world’s largest energy user, according to Paris-based International Energy Agency. As a rapid growing China’s GDP, it will continue to drive up the domestic energy consumption. The renewables, such as nuclear, wind and solar energy are no doubt seen as the favorable means to complement the energy shortage. A Stronger and Smarter Grid in China will pave the road of the renewables utilization and raise energy efficiency to cut emissions.

Grid is the world’s most complex man-made systems, information, mass, control complex, which also determines the different national conditions, the country’s development direction and focus of the smart grid are also different. In China, strong smart grid is primarily a strong grid, whose extra-high voltage technology has core characteristics including long distance, high capacity and low loss efficiency. But “should be ’strong’ and ’smart’ the advantages of a collection in one person.” This view is being more recognized and accepted. UHV grid as the backbone, with coordinated development of subordinate grids at all levels and support of IT & telecommunication platform, featured by IT-based, interactive and automated. Strong and Smart are two basic requirements for modern power grid development. Strong is the basis and smart is the key. Combination of strong grid structure and grid smartness is the feature of describing modern power grid development by integral and systematic means. Furthermore, the end-users and distribution networks in China are not as mature as most developed countries, and the penetration rate of small-scale renewables are relatively low at the moment. In fact, growth of renewable energy in the country is primarily driven by large-scale projects that do not directly connected to end-users. Given these conditions, it is expected that initial stages of the Chinese smart grid plan will focus on the ability of controlling bulk electricity transfer efficiently, and then moves towards end-users and services integration in the next stages when the users are becoming more ready.

At the same time, the second stage of China’s Smart Grid plan, from 2011 to 2015, not only focus on accelerating UHV, urban and rural grids construction, but also establishing the basic framework for smart grid operation control and interaction, achieving the projected advancements in technology and equipment production, mass deployment. For example, in China ‘smart grid’, are estimated to be a nearly $100 billion opportunity over the next five years. With total power capacity set to reach 1,430 gigawatt by 2015 from 874 gigawatt at the start of 2010, China has to figure out how to bring trillions of kilowatt hours of power to more than a billion customers, sometimes over very long distances.

Smart-grid technology brings power grids into the telecommunications age, connecting “smart meters” in households and businesses to central monitoring systems capable of detecting and redressing outages or overloads in an instant.

The installation of smart meters alone will be worth $3.1 billion in 2011, up from $2.4 billion this year, according to estimates by the China Electricity Council — and foreign firms are already looking to supply components, control and automation systems, and know-how. (from Reuters)

With this mind, the CDMC Smart Grid Series Forum, as a professional and unparallel communication platform, concentrates on supporting an intelligent network and a global vision to our high-level worldwide industrial partners for three year. The 3rd Annual Smart Grid Forum China Focus 2011 (Sep. 15th -17th 2011) will bring industry thought leaders and a focused group of audience together to discuss the policy & the regulatory landscape, smart grid standardization, customer-side issues (billing, metering & CRM), ICT, smart distribution and smart integration of renewables.

The Organizing Committee of the 3rd Annual China Smart Grid Forum 2011 is looking forward your participation in Shanghai.

17th Convergence India 2009

Monday, January 5th, 2009


The philosophy of, Anything, Anywhere & Anytime . . .has been driving technological convergence in the Information, Communications Technology (ICT) sector and is revolutionizing the way we think, communicate, access information and conduct business.

As a major driver of the Indian economy, the ICT industry is stimulating growth across all sectors. Innovations in technology are not only connecting individuals from remote corners of the country and bringing faster and easier access to information and services, but are also enabling the operators to minimize their expenses by sharing the infrastructural cost while continuing to offer differentiated competitive services.

Spreading the message of how digital convergence is empowering lives, 17th Convergence India 2009, international exhibition and conference brings into sharp focus the tenacity of the Indian ICT industry and the emergence of its untapped market as a global destination for business and investment.

Once again, the venue for the burgeoning ICT sector expo is New Delhi, which is the 1st Indian city to have joined the global league of cities with over 100% telecom penetration. To be held from 18-20 March 2009, the 17th Convergence India 2009 has kept abreast with the dynamic changes of the fast evolving technology and has expanded its zone from Telecom, IT & Information Security to Broadcast & Cable, Satellite, Entertainment and the evolving opportunities in application development, valued added services and gaming segment.

17th Convergence India 2009 is supported by the Ministry of Communications & Information Technology, Govt. of India and the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, Govt. of India, along with a host of leading associations like the Asia Pacific Satellite Communication Council (APSCC), Cable Operators Federation of India (COFI), Consumer Electronics and Appliances Manufacturers Association (CEAMA), the Indian Cellular Association (ICA), the IPTV India Forum and the Manufacturers Association of Information Technology (MAIT), MPEG Industry Forum and WiFi Alliance .

Indian ICT: The growth story
The impressive growth in the ICT industry has not gone unnoticed by global manufacturers, service providers and investors who are lining up to gain access to the Indian market.

With a population of over a billion, India has emerged as an attractive destination for network operators, telcos and content providers from across the world. Recent technologies like 3G, WiMax, IPTV etc. are creating opportunities for global telecom majors in the country.

Significantly, as the telecom market reaches a saturation point in the urban cities of India, the next level of explosive growth for telecom providers is expected from the rural population, which has a growing pool of disposable income. The wireless broadband access technology will address the lack of connectivity in the under-penetrated market of rural India and will bring the masses from remote areas into the fold of economic growth and development.

17th Convergence India 2009: Keeping pace with the ICT revolution

As the telecom industry has grown and evolved over the years, so has the event. The 17th Convergence India 2009, registering a growth of 30% over the previous edition, brings you a range of sophisticated technologies and innovations on an unparalleled scale with 650 exhibitors from 30 countries from the broadcasting, IT, information security, and telecom and mobility segments.

The Convergence India brand is synonymous with innovation as new technologies and sectors are highlighted every year.

A focused platform for the Broadcasting sector
A significant development in the show’s format is the inclusion of the broadcasting sector in a separate hall. India’s broadcasting industry is ready to take off with competition heating up between IPTV, DTH and digital cable providers, laying the ground for the emergence of India as Asia’s leading cable market by 2010.

The broadcasting industry is expected to grow from the current US$ 8 billion to US$ 18 billion by 2010. Increasingly radio and television content are converging on telecom networks, while new technologies are providing telephony, Internet access and TV channels on broadband networks.

No wonder Convergence India 2009 is putting a strong focus on broadcasting as a major value-addition to the ICT industry. While broadcasting has previously been an integral part of Convergence India, the 17th edition of the event will showcase the rise of the sector on larger scale than ever before with broadcast and satellite equipment manufacturers, VAS players, broadcasters, service providers, network operators etc. all convening under one roof.

International Conference

The 17th Convergence India 2009 international conference comprises of 2 parallel tracks per day broadly encompassing themes like next-generation networks, WiMax evolution, technology strategies for 3G, developing mobile communication in rural areas, the business of infotainment, mobile entertainment, managing IT infrastructure, information theft and many more.
