Briefly put: The Israeli Smart Energy Association (ISEA) has recently released the first comprehensive study and recommendations for a Road Map for Smart Grid Deployment in Israel. The report provides an outlook on the technologies, trends, regulations, marketing aspects and the uniquely developed Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) model.
The Israeli Smart Energy Association (ISEA) took upon itself to prepare a comprehensive document analysing all aspects of Smart Grid deployment: Global trends, technology, engineering, regulation, legal aspects, marketing aspects, economic viability, and the role of the local industry in deployment. The report analysed the Smart Grid in an objective manner from the point of view of the national economy. Israel is an “interesting case”. On the one hand the Israel Electric Company (IEC) has installed advanced control and supervision systems in the transmission and distribution segments. On the other hand Israel is lagging behind in all elements related to end user premises.
The first trial is currently under way, and is scheduled to be completed during the first quarter of 2014.
