The following information was excerpted from a Newton-Evans survey conducted in September 2010. A total of 47 utility officials from the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia-Pacific regions responded to the survey participation request. For the majority of U.S.-based respondents, there was a good mix of utility representation by size and by type of utility.

Approximately what percentage of your feeders (existing & new) will include FDIR, Integrated Volt/VAR Control, or Medium Voltage/Low Voltage Sensors?

Importantly, utility responses indicate that the percentages of feeders to include any of the three applications will continue to increase over the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 periods.

Integrated volt and VAR control was the most likely application to have been implemented to date. However, the budget percentages allocated for FDIR are expected to more than double over the 2010-2012 periods (from 7% to 15%). The already substantial portion allocated for IVVC will likely grow from 19% to 28%.
