Our current approach to the transmission and distribution of electricity within the UK has proven to be pretty unreliable and unsuccessful. This is due to the lack of improvements and development made within the system since it was first introduced. We have now started to develop newer, smarter technologies to help assist in conquering the deficiencies within our current system.

A smart grid is a newly-formed, more reliable structure, which can help improve the environment by reducing greenhouse gases, and can save you money thanks to its more energy-efficient nature.


The Future On Smart Grid Electrics

What are smart grid electrics? The smart grid is a modified system that has been developed throughout the 21st century to try and improve the way in which we use electricity and how we can manage it. The new system aims to support and accommodate renewable energy resources that already exist, such as solar, wind, geothermal and bio-fuel. It intends to make people trust it more, by informing them about the amount of energy they use. Smart grid electrics also try to help companies reduce outages and power cuts.

The Benefits

There are plenty of benefits and opportunities that smart grid electrics could provide you with as a consumer. These benefits include reduced consumer costs; supported economic growth, and security to support a more reliable system.

Minimised consumer bills

Consumer bills will become supported by having a more efficient network, meaning there will be minimised costs in trying to improve the organisation.

Consumer and community participation

The smart grid can have a great impact on consumer and community interaction on the energy system. This is due to providing smart metres that will give more accurate information on their energy use. Suppliers will then be able to provide cost-reflective tariffs to consumers, rewarding them for the energy they haven’t used.

Creating jobs and economic growth

Introducing smart grid electrics can offer many job opportunities to businesses all over the UK. The development of this system could export earnings and boost job vacancies if a satisfactory investment is made.

Why We Need Smart Grids

There are four main reasons that explain why we need smart grid electrics. These consist of the following: reliability; flexibility; accessibility and savings.

They are predicted to offer long-term effects, as using this technology will improve and modernise ageing equipment that was used prior to the organisation. It can reduce the likelihood of blackouts, burnouts, and power surges from occurring. The technology will also reduce the costings in production and consumption, making renewable power feasible as well as matching the increasing demand in energy.


Smart grid electrics overall gives consumers control over their energy bills and helps towards creating a more eco-friendly environment. If you’re interested in finding out more information on smart grids, please fill out an enquiry form, or give us a call today on 0203 633 4536
