The "smart grid" is still in an early stage of deployment, but is evolving to suit advanced sensor technologies. Smart grids require multiple sensing, monitoring, and control functions at various levels—thus presenting several opportunities for smart grid sensors going forward. Not all these opportunities are available immediately. Also, once developed, these sensing devices will do not only smart grid functions but also other industry functions.
