The global electricity sector is in the early stages of its most dramatic transformation in over a century. The rapid expansion of distributed energy, combined with the newfound availability of data and analytics for utilities, will reshape how the world generates, distributes and consumes power.

 

With market research, authoritative news, and events, GTM is the leading information services provider for this next-generation electricity system.

 

On July 19 2016, Verisk Analytics signed a definitive agreement to acquire GTM. Following the close of this transaction, Greentech Media will become part of Wood Mackenzie, a move that will immediately enable both GTM and Wood Mackenzie to provide broader market-leading analysis and insight.
