Evolution of the Grid Edge: Pathways to Transformation
GTM Research launched the grid edge concept in October 2013 which, at its core, represents the most significant transformation that the electricity sector has witnessed in a century. As the grid edge market develops, states will follow different paths of adoption based on the needs and issues specific to the territories they serve.
Predictions of Grid Edge Technology Adoption Pathways
The three GTM Research-identified pathways: "The Advanced Energy Consumer," "The Innovative Regulator," and "The Proactive Energy Provider" offer some milestones as to when various grid edge technology decisions are likely to be made. Though some of these may appear on the surface to have similar tendencies, it can be used as a framework for solution providers to plan where their offerings could offer the most value to utilities and energy providers undergoing this transformation.
The Grid Edge Executive Council is where GTM Research gathers industry leaders to discuss this transformation. To learn more about the Council, click here or contact Tate Ishimuro at firstname.lastname@example.org.
