The Enterprise Smart Grid and a Corporate Buyer’s Guide for Energy Management Software

by Paul Baier

Enterprise managers increasingly recognize the business need to more proactively manage their energy consumption. Their energy costs are increasing, their constituents are pressing them to act, and they’ve realized there is no quick fix—the solution requires improved management processes and technology.

Groom Energy's research with companies, vendors, consultants, and utility managers concludes that to solve this problem companies need to implement their own energy network, analogous to the utility smart grid, which delivers a management system they can use for this purpose. This report names this market opportunity for energy network solutions the Enterprise Smart Grid (ESG).
