Smart Grid Cyber Security Market & Electrical Energy Storage Technology in the Intelligent Grid Analyzed in New Market Research Reports

DALLAS, Sep 17, 2012 (PR Newswire Europe via COMTEX) -- DALLAS, September 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ReportsnReports.com adds "Cyber Security in Smart Grid - Market Size, Key Issues, Regulations and Outlook to 2020" and "Electrical Energy Storage Technology and its Use Within the Intelligent Grid" to its store.

A new research expects the smart grid cyber security market to exhibit huge growth before the end of the decade, climbing from a global value of $7.8 billion in 2011 to $79 billion in 2020. By enabling more efficient transmission and distribution of electricity, smart grids are rapidly gaining popularity around the world. However, concerns are growing that the two-way flow of information the technology involves threatens privacy and could potentially compromise personal data, says this new research report by energy industry experts GlobalData.

The latest report on smart grid cyber security market [http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/192512-cyber-security-in-smart-grid-market-size-key-issues-regulations-and-outlook-to-2020.html ] states that while governments worldwide prepare to spend billions on securing smart grid infrastructure from external threats, large portions of the global community are fighting the potential harvest and dissemination of personal information by utility companies and other organizations.

Data collected through various smart grid technologies such as smart meters and smart appliances helps utilities to understand their consumers' electricity consumption patterns. Based on these patterns, companies can plan their generation, provide more effective services, and also reduce peak-hour demand or load by forming suitable demand-response programs.

Worries for data privacy arise when the data collected from smart grid technologies is used to analyze the personal habits, lifestyle and behavior of consumers, beyond providing them with efficient electricity services.

In the US, a lack of clarity about the ownership and responsibility over energy consumption data has raised concerns among the population about data safety, whereas in 2009 large scale consumer group protests in the Netherlands forced the Dutch government to back down from plans to enforce the mandatory installation of smart meters in all households.

Canada is one of the few smart grid markets to recognize the significance of consumer data privacy to its citizens, creating a set of guidelines in the 1990s known as Privacy by Design in the 1990s. This has prompted major utilities in Canada to incorporate security features into their smart grid systems.

The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) expects overall global energy consumption to increase by 47% between 2010 and 2035, with China and India ttogether accounting for half of the growth. This is increasingly presenting a major problem to power suppliers around the world as electrical energy infrastructures in most countries are antiquated, wasteful, and unable to cope with rising demand.

Highlights of the report on Electrical Energy Storage Technology and its Use Within the Intelligent Grid [http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/192271-electrical-energy-storage-technology-and-its-use-within-the-intelligent-grid.html ] include: - The problem of the intermittent delivery patterns of green energy technology can be solved by storing up power generated during off-peak periods for dispersal at times of greater need. However, the best means of storing energy remains a matter for debate with no definitive one-size-fits-all solution yet established as an industry standard.

- The European utility-scale battery market was valued at $126.4m in terms of revenue in 2010 and could be worth as much as $564.9m by 2015. With renewable energy investment increasing rapidly, the demand for battery storage is expected to rise as well.

- Along with compressed air energy storage, pumped storage offers the least expensive form of energy storage, with a 1,000MW project costing about $1,500/KW to $2,500/KW, according to the National Hydropower Association in Washington, DC.

Your key questions answered - What are the major smart grid projects and what challenges have they encountered - What are the different types of battery storage technology available and what are their pros/cons - What innovations in battery technology still need to take place before they can be used at utility-scale - To what extent is the renewable energy sector influencing change in electrical energy distribution - What is the future outlook for smart grid uptake Buy your copy of this report @ http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/192271-electrical-energy-storage-technology-and-its-use-within-the-intelligent-grid.html .

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
