Addressing climate changes and rapidly increasing supply-demand gap is on the top of the agenda of the Electric Utilities management worldwide. The industry has undergone progressive restructuring over the last decade along with significant regulatory changes to accommodate the associated change. While deregulation has benefitted the end-users tremendously, it has also resulted in plethora of complex operational challenges for the companies. While conformity to the restructuring and the regulatory actions combined defined the technology focus of the utilities in the past, the future seem to be focused on asset and resource optimization in regulated markets and enabling competitive edge in contestable deregulated markets.
To address these complex challenges, the electric utility industry is looking for business partners in the form of technology service providers with deep industry focus and specialized competencies in solving industry problems like supply security, emissions control, reliability, energy efficiency and customer profitability etc. The solutions which are gaining most ground in this space are in the areas of Demand Response, Work Force Optimization and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI).
