The fundamental technologies related to Smart Grid ecosystem and their applications are evolving. How should the Utilities plan for adopting them?

The nascent technologies like using mobile devices for home automation can be funded as R&D spends to start-ups.

Utilities need to be cautious about emerging applications, which do not have a stable ecosystem. Applications built on tablets (iPad) and social media data are yet to mature and stabilize for enterprise scale adoption. Therefore, utilities should restrain from commiting investment now. They should track the evolution and commit investment for only maturing applications.

Utilities should plan for in-depth, enterprise-wide roll-out of maturing applications of emerging technologies. Example: Usage of SmartPhones for supporting field force. Without spending too much time on pondering over benefits of pilot implementation, if they go for early adoption, it can yield competitive advantage for them.
