The purpose of this paper is to explain the importance of Smart Grid Deployment in Asia-Pacific region. The paper throws the light on various problems and challenges related to electricity grids that are faced in Asia-Pacific region and the solution to manage those problems by adopting the vision of a “Smart Grid.” The essence of this vision is “a fully-automated power delivery network that can ensure a two-way flow of electricity and information between the power grids and appliances and all points in between”. The paper also provides the overview on the three key technological components of Smart Grid that includes: • Distribution Automation(DA) • Personal Energy Management(PEM) • Advanced Metering Infrastructure(AMI) Focusing in on the role of the above three key components of Smart Grid , this paper lays out the Introduction on the factors that are pulling and pushing the utilities to change the way they operate in order to improve the current services. The flow then involves the explanation on Moving beyond AMI to Adopt Smart Grid Vision which includes the overview of all the key components of Smart Grid and thus focusing on the requirement to make the electricity grid “Smart” and revolutionizing the electric power networks. The further explanation is on the Ongoing and Future Projects on Smart grid in Asia-Pacific region. Finally, the paper concludes with the suggestions and proposals for the Regional Approach to Smart Grid Development that explains the demand for Smart Grid capability within Asia which is quite diverse in nature ranging from reflecting the sophisticated nature of electricity demand in developed nations such as Japan and South Korea, to the need for first deployment of grids and massive grid upgrades in the developing economies of India and China.
