As smart grid market drivers shift from U.S. stimulus funds to operational efficiencies, utilities are demanding that vendors prove a business case to justify smart grid expenditures to their investors and regulators. While some utilities are still initiating advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and distributed generation projects to meet requirements, the lack of federal mandates in smart grid and renewable energy means that in order to predict where the industry is going and which companies will succeed, it is truly essential to understand how utilities are approaching the smart grid market.

This new 219-page report from provides insight into the strategies utilities are employing to improve the efficiency and reliability of energy delivery. In addition to unpacking utility trends and key demographics, the report details current and future plans for deployment and integration of new smart grid technologies within 40 in-depth and extensive profiles of leading North American utilities.

The report also contains utility maturity rankings, both overall and by sub-market, including:

  • Smart grid portfolio
  • Communication networks
  • Data management and analytics
  • Enterprise management and integration
  • Consumer engagement


Below is a list of North American utilities that are profiled in the report. These profiles are the result of almost 100 hours of in-depth interviews and conversations with utility executives about the state of their smart grid deployments,  and they provide background on the motivations and goals of each utility’s smart grid roadmap, as well as a detailed look at the communications networks, operations management systems, data management architectures, and consumer engagement initiatives currently being deployed and integrated. The profiles provide a deep yet broad look at the specific vendors, technologies and architectures utilities have deployed, are deploying, and plan to deploy over the next several years.

Utilities profiled include: Alabama Power • Alliant Energy • Arizona Public Service • Black Hills Power • Braintree Electric Light Department • Brantford Power • Burbank Water & Power • CenterPoint Energy • Central Georgia Electric Membership Corporation • Central Maine Power • Commonwealth Edison • Consumers Energy • CPS Energy • Duke Energy • Enwin Utilities • EPB • Florida Power & Light • French Broad EMC • Green Mountain Power • Gulf Power • Horry Electric Cooperative • Hydro One • Jacksonville Electric Authority • Kansas City Board of Public Utilities • Lakeland Electric • Modesto Irrigation District • National Grid • Oklahoma Gas & Electric • Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) • Portland General Electric (PGE) • PPL Electric Utilities • Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) • Salt River Project (SRP) • San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) • Seattle City Light • Silicon Valley Power • South Central Indiana Rural Electric Member Cooperative • Southern California Edison (SCE) • Tacoma Power • Toronto Hydro
