NanoMarkets' Smart Grid Analysis Group Announces July 29 Date for Webinar on Opportunities in Smart Grid Transmission and Distribution

GLEN ALLEN, VA--(Marketwire - July 15, 2010) -  NanoMarkets, a Virginia-based analyst firm, has announced a July 29th date for its upcoming webinar titled, "Opportunities in Smart Grid Transmission and Distribution." The event will present research findings from the company's Smart Grid Analysis unit that has recently issued two reports on smart grid transmission and distribution markets.

About the Event:

Smart Grids are proving to be a significant technology opportunity. Globally, both private companies and governments are committing billions of dollars to constructing and re-architecting electricity grids that will offer customers greater reliability, better pricing and more service options while at the same time addressing requirements for renewable energy integration and other green initiatives. In fact, NanoMarkets/Smart Grid Analysis analysts believe that the T&D sector will be one of the biggest beneficiaries of the Smart Grid boom.

NanoMarkets/Smart Grid Analysis will share the results of its ground breaking industry analysis. This webinar will include:

  • Excerpts from NanoMarkets/Smart Grid Analysis' latest eight-year forecasts for Smart Grid T&D equipment

  • Our analysis of the opportunities for specific products covering high-voltage transmission systems, medium-voltage transformers, FACTS, FCLs, and automation and communications systems

  • NanoMarkets' take on the Smart Grid strategies being pursued today by major T&D firms

  • A geographical analysis of T&D market opportunities, now and over the next decade. Insights on what the history of the telecommunications equipment industry tells us about the future of the T&D industry; and what it doesn't tell us

This Webinar will answer the following questions:

  • What is the future for DC in the Smart Grid and why?
  • Will the FACTS market really get a boost from renewable integration, distributed storage and microgrids? And those next-generation FACTS systems, when will they take off?
  • What will the "Smart Grid transformer" look like and when will it appear?
  • How will the latest communications, electronics and materials technologies provide T&D firms with a competitive edge?
  • Which countries will supply the largest markets for Smart Grid T&D equipment?
  • Where will the next generation of T&D players come from?
  • Should VCs be looking at the T&D space?
