The Japanese Smart Grid Initiatives, Investments, and Collaborations

A smart grid delivers power around the country and has an intelligent monitoring system, which not only keeps track of all the energy coming in from diverse sources but also can detect where energy is needed through a two-way communication system that collects data about how and when consumers use power. It is safer in many ways, compared with the current one directional power supply system that seems susceptible to either sabotage or natural disasters, including being more resistant to attack and power outages. In such an autonomic and advanced grid environment, investing in a pilot study and knowing the nation's readiness to adopt a smart grid absolves the government of complex intervention from any failure to bring Japan into the autonomic-grid environment.
