Mark B.M. Ossel is the Vice President Sales for Networked Energy Services Corporation (previous smart grid business unit Echelon Corporation)
Mr Ossel's top 3 predictions for the power sector in 2015 are:
- Increased understanding of the benefits of LV transformer centric architecture for smart metering/grid, and use of meters as sensors.
- Failures of large scale projects due to use of unproven technology, or security problems. Security becoming top issue.
- New players take significant positions offering innovative solutions, providing a platform for grid management and LV automation, while traditional suppliers will struggle due to heritage.
