Research and Markets Adds Report: The Networked Grid 150: The End-to-End Smart Grid Vendor Ecosystem Report and Rankings 2013

Apr 09, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "The Networked Grid 150: The End-to-End Smart Grid Vendor Ecosystem Report and Rankings 2013" report to its offerings.

In a release, Research and Markets noted that report highlights include: What does 2013 hold for the smart grid market As the industry evolves rapidly, a vibrant ecosystem of vendors and utilities continue to compete for a share of the USD $500 billion estimated to be spent on smart grid initiatives by 2030. Traditional utility solution providers, tangential entrants into the industry and pure play smart grid vendors are all converging around the smart grid value proposition over the short, medium and long term. While standards, interoperability and partnerships are creating competitive advantages in the market, the focus on deploying hard assets like smart meters and distribution devices (e.g., automatic voltage regulators and smart transformers) continues. However, solutions that unlock the power of smart grid data by using analytical solutions across the enterprise, grid operations and customer functions are growing rapidly. Although the list of vendors in the market place is diverse, they are all operating across an interdependent smart grid value chain - what we call The Networked Grid.

As we move into 2013, GTM Research is publishing the next edition of The Networked Grid 150 report, the industry's leading compendium of market players, vendor rankings, competitive positioning and market maturity assessments for each smart grid segment. This report examines the ocean of vendors competing today in the smart grid space, emphasizing the two largest first mover markets of North America and Europe, but with an increasing focus on smart grid vendors from emerging markets.

Markets segments covered in the report include: Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), Building Area Networks (BAN), Consulting & Integration, Demand Response, Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure, Energy Storage, Field Area Networks (FAN), Home Area Networks (HAN), Networking & Management, Soft Grid, Security, Transmission & Distribution (T&D), Wide Area Network (WAN) Communications.

What's new in the 2013 report - 2013 Market assessments and developments - 2013 Analyst profiles for over 150 of the market's leading vendors; includes product summaries, market activity, and individual analyst commentary - Ranking: Top 10 Vendors in Smart Grid - Ranking: Top 10 Vendors to Watch in Smart Grid - Ranking: Top 5 Vendors Across 12 Smart Grid Market Segments - Ranking: Innovation awards for 'best in class' products and services For a list of the companies covered in the report and more information visit ((Comments on this story may be sent to
