The picture of electrification across the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) economies is complex. APEC members are in various states of smart grid development, ranging from no activity, conducting demonstrations, and engaging in joint projects with other economies. Each member economy has unique attributes that influence the benefits of smart grid capabilities and affect the priorities given to deployment strategies. To help provide insights into this complex topic, this work surveys APEC economies and characterizes the status of smart grid activities. It also identifies APEC economies that are actively pursuing smart grid capabilities to address environmental and economic sustainability goals. Finally, the report explores the potential application of smart grid capabilities to resolve renewable-integration and energy-efficiency concerns so future directions or roadmaps in this area can be developed by interested economies.
