Market Research Report
The article provides an overview of the electric power transmission and distribution (T&D) networks in East Asia. China's Electricity Regulation Commission (SERC) regulates the country's power sector while generation is handled by five generating companies and two transmission companies operates its power grids. Ten vertically integrated Electric Power Companies (EPCOs) comprise the Japanese power sector while South Korea's transmission system is comprised of 345-, 154- and 66-kilovolt (kV) lines.
