Smart Grid Home Area Network (HAN) Market Overview
Electricity is the most widely used form of energy across the globe. Generation of electrical energy is the major source of carbon dioxide emission, as it relies on fossil fuels, followed by transportation, and is thus a significant contributor to climate change.
In order to cater to growing demand for electricity and reduce the impact on the environment, electric systems need to be efficient and effective enough to conserve and reduce the electricity wastage. Smart grid solutions offer a comprehensive approach to meet the aforementioned challenges.
Smart grid systems offers demand response capabilities in order to balance electrical consumption with supply as well as potential to integrate new technologies. HAN is a subsystem within the smart grid primarily oriented towards the demand-side management.
Smart grid home area network is basically a network of signal-controlled appliances, consumer devices, and energy management devices. This enables connected devices to send and receive signals from meter, displays and other home management devices.
