RnRMarketResearch.com offers Power Transmission and Distribution (T&D) In Asia-Pacific - Infrastructure, Investment and Regulation Analysis and Annual Global Planned Pipelines Outlook - Enhancing Export Opportunities, Addressing Energy Security Concerns and Providing Alternative Supply Sources 2014 research reports in its store.
Incorporation of renewable energy into grid to drive transmission and distribution market says the report Power Transmission and Distribution (T&D) In Asia-Pacific - Infrastructure, Investment and Regulation Analysis available at http://www.rnrmarketresearch.com/power-transmission-and-distribution-td-in-asia-pacific-infrastructure-investment-and-regulation-analysis-market-report.html . As demand for electricity continues to increase, power producers are diversifying the sources from which electricity is generated. Countries are increasingly investing in alternative fuels, such as wind, solar, hydro, biomass and nuclear power, to meet the growing demand. Among the Asia-Pacific countries, China and India have the most extensive plans for expanding installed renewable capacity. By 2020, China and India are expected to have respective wind power capacities of around 239 Gigawatts (GW) and 37 GW. The incorporation of renewable energy into their grids will drive investment in their Transmission and Distribution (T&D) sectors. Australia and Japan also have robust plans for increasing the share of renewable energy in their respective power mixes.
The Europe, Middle East and Africa region plans to make the longest oil and gas pipeline additions by 2018 as per the report Annual Global Planned Pipelines Outlook - Enhancing Export Opportunities, Addressing Energy Security Concerns and Providing Alternative Supply Sources available at http://www.rnrmarketresearch.com/annual-global-planned-pipelines-outlook-enhancing-export-opportunities-addressing-energy-security-concerns-and-providing-alternative-supply-sources-market-report.html . A total of 145,004.1 kilometers (km) (90,101.3 miles (mi)) of new-built oil and gas pipeline length is planned to be built across various regions of the world by 2018. More new pipelines will be built in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region than any other, totaling 58,981.9 km (36,649.6 mi) between 2014 and 2018, accounting for about 41% of the total global planned pipeline length additions during this period. For the purposes of this report, the global market has been split into three regions, EMEA, the Americas and the Asia-Pacific. The EMEA region has been considered to include Russia and most of the former Soviet Union countries (except Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan), in addition to countries in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Power T&D Smart Grid Deployment to Promote Efficient Power Consumption
Nearly all of the major countries in Asia-Pacific are pursuing the deployment of smart grid technology, with the intention of increasing the efficiency of their power distribution systems and ensuring that their power consumption is monitored effectively. China is the leading country in this region in terms of smart grid development. The State Grid Corporation of China plans to invest $45 billion in various smart grid projects between 2012 and 2015. In September 2013 the Indian government published the "Smart Grid Vision and Roadmap for India". In Japan, four smart city demonstration projects are currently in progress, while in 2010 Australia began modernizing its power distribution system with the "Smart Grid, Smart City" project.
Robust Regulatory Framework
Most of the Asia-Pacific countries are working towards setting up a robust regulatory framework for facilitating the growth of their T&D sectors. They are formulating effective policies and targets for driving this growth. China has set a target to interconnect its existing grids and form an integrated synchronous national grid by 2020. India has a very detailed set of rules and regulations for its T&D sector. The regulations relate to inter-state transmission licenses, electricity grid code, and long- and medium-term open access, among other things. New Zealand also has a good regulatory framework, which specifically contains regulations pertaining to interconnection rules and grid reliability standards. Japan enacted the Electricity System Reform law in November 2013. The law concerns establishing a national grid company by 2015, unbundling the generation and transmission sector and liberalizing the power market for residential purposes. Other countries, including Indonesia, are likely to establish a suitable regulatory framework in the near future

Of the total global pipeline length additions planned by 2018, North America and South and Central America (Americas) region accounts for 32%. The Asia-Pacific region, with planned pipeline length addition of 39,321.0 km (24,432.9 mi), accounts for a 27% share of the planned pipeline length additions, worldwide, during this period.
Unconventional Production Growth and Energy Security Concerns Drive Pipeline Investments
Planned pipeline projects are driven by the fact that pipelines are a cost-effective means for transportation of crude oil, refined products and natural gas from producing areas to consumers. Besides this, investment in planned oil and gas pipeline length additions are driven by different regional factors across different regions of the world. Currently, investment in planned pipeline projects in the Americas is primarily driven by unprecedented growth in oil and gas output from unconventional sources such as shales and oil sands. In EMEA, investment in planned pipeline projects is driven primarily by planned diversification of gas sources by key consuming countries. In Asia-Pacific, pipeline investment is driven by the need for energy security by certain developing economies with rapidly growing energy consumption.
Progress of planned pipeline projects are often affected by environmental and geopolitical issues. Such issues have resulted into delays in a number of projects in the Americas, Asia-Pacific and EMEA. In the Americas, some of the planned pipelines meant to transport tar sands containing bitumen from Canada have been facing opposition by various environmental groups. Some such pipeline projects include Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain pipeline, Enbridge's Northern Gateway pipeline and the Keystone XL pipeline. According to the opposing groups, these pipelines may cause significant damage to the local ecosystem in the event of any oil spill or rupture. In the Asia-Pacific region, the Iran-Pakistan-India pipeline was also postponed due to geopolitical issues and opposition from the US. Despite this, Iran has completed its section of pipeline. It is yet to be seen if the recent improvements in US-Iran relations will allow the completion of this project.
OAO Gazprom Plans the Most Pipeline Construction Globally by 2018
OAO Gazprom plans to make the most pipeline additions, of any operator, during the 2014-2018 period. Other major operators, in terms of planned pipeline additions, include China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), TransCanada, Enbridge and Kinder Morgan.
The 10 largest operators, based on planned pipeline length, will be responsible for about one-third (35.2%) of the total planned pipeline length to be added globally by 2018, with a planned aggregate length of 50,983.3 km (31,679.5 mi).

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
