Growing electricity concerns, usage of new transmission technology along with use of large central station generating plants (to serve giant areas), the demand for electricity transmission infrastructure is increasing. Spanning across the world, a much-needed attention is required for the electricity transmission infrastructure market. The waves of electricity transmission started in 1900s. Located near demand centres, it is a bulk transmission of electrical energy from generating power plants to electrical substations. Though, it is different from electric power distribution (limited wiring between high-voltage substations and customers). For transmission networks, transmission lines need to be connected with each other. The developing infrastructure market has largely emphasised on the development of electricity transmission infrastructure market. Economic growth, increase in population, policy initiatives, connecting to renewable energy sources are the factors expanding and extending the growth in the electricity transmission infrastructure market.
Electricity Transmission Infrastructure Market: Drivers & Restraints
To add new capacity and better monitoring facilities, new transmission lines are being built and existing systems are retrofitted. Forces such as need for electricity and significant capital investments is considered as one of the biggest driver for the increasing demand of the electricity transmission infrastructure market. Investment in smart grid is accounting for a major share of the overall market. Also the increasing regulatory standards has strongly contributed to the demand of the global electricity transmission infrastructure market. However, loss of electrical energy in long distance transmission (cannot be stored) are the major restraint in the global electricity transmission infrastructure market.
