Discover what companies are developing and deploying smart grid technologies in this comprehensive directory profiling 66 major technology providers, including contact details.
The power transmission and distribution system is being transformed into a smart grid that integrates a multitude of distributed energy resources, uses solid state electronics to manage and deliver power, and employs automated control systems.
The power industry, trailing behind other economic sectors already revolutionized by computerization (e.g. retailing and manufacturing), will see inexpensive computing power and low cost bandwidth infuse every element of the grid with digital intelligence in coming decades. These smart grid technology providers are the companies that are developing the hardware and software necessary for grid development and deployment.
The vision of the smart grid is to break down barriers between transmission and distribution, communications, and back office systems to create a fully integrated network that provides diagnosis and resolution of problems as they arise and enables real time exchange of information between the utility and its customers.
Learn what companies are leading the way in technology development, and systems testing and implementation.
