As the world’s fastest-growing energy market, Asia is projected to see a surge in power demand of up to 60% by 2040. To cope with this rising power demand, Asia’s electricity market is now open and investing in smart grids and microgrids to meet the growing electricity demand effectively. However, challenges still lie ahead as grid reliability and stability are disrupted by power disturbances due to natural disasters and cyberattacks, power demand and supply imbalances and localised and remote areas lack of constant electricity supply due to power outages.
