The Networked Grid 100: Movers and Shakers of the Smart Grid

For those about to rock, we salute you.

The smart grid market continues to grow faster than a young Kareem Abdul-Jabbar -- if not in market size (yet), at least in the number of movers and shakers that are entering the space. That's worth something, right? As such, we've compiled a list of 100 people who are influencing this market on a daily basis, be it through innovating, regulating, evangelizing, planning, deploying, benchmarking, architecting, standardizing, investing, developing, etc. Are these folks in your Rolodex? If not, they should be. If you didn't make the list, don't feel bad. It's a big smart grid world out there. And if it weren't for dark horses like Conan O'Brian and Angus Young, your name might be in lights, too. (Please note that this list is not a ranking; it's organized in alphabetical order.)
