20 Most Promising Utilities Technology Solution Providers - 2016

Energy providers today are grappling with challenges of maintaining their ageing systems while catering to rising customer expectations. In the meantime, emerging trends such as distributed generation and Behind the Meter (BTM) on-site generation sources are having a greater impact on the landscape. This unrelenting pace of innovation in the utilities sector is dictating the requirement for solutions that augment efficient energy storage, mitigate the cybersecurity threats, and effectively reduce the need for costly infrastructure upgrades.

Meanwhile, the emergence of an increasingly decentralized and smarter power grid architecture, better known as the “Energy Cloud” is fast replacing the old infrastructure. Comprehensive solution providers that offer utility automation systems are keeping track of these new developments in the industry, and are introducing innovative solutions for real-time management and optimization of production, transport, and delivery for utilities. The presence of thousands of solution providers offering advanced data driven application technologies and smart grid communications make it quite toilsome for the CIOs to zero in on the best solution for their enterprises.
