Company, Alliance and Technology Profiles

There are many initiatives underway in the U.S. to promote residential energy management and conservation. Electric utilities are deploying Advanced Metering Infrastructures (AMI), which promise benefits such as load shedding and the ability to accommodate alternative energy sources and pinpoint outages.

For consumers, benefits could include reduced energy bills, enhanced comfort and convenience, and a reduction in their carbon footprint. This report is a reference book of companies developing the technologies, deploying the systems and building business models that capitalize on bringing the smart grid to the smart home.

“A key component of AMI is the smart meter, which is a digital meter capable of processing and reporting usage data to providers and households via two-way communication between meters and utility offices,” said Parks Associates. “Utilities see the benefit of upgrading the grid, and consumers are growing more conscious of their energy consumption. Add in incentives from the government, and you have three strong drivers that will boost deployment and innovation in this market.”
