20 Most Promising Energy Solution Providers 2015

Like every other industry, the energy sector too has witnessed the latest technological trends being implemented into its functioning, making the sector more productive and accountable for energy consumption and energy loss. With the evolution of customer interface in modern day energy equipments and the environmental protection agency’s latest effort to regulate carbon use, the industry has made massive strides to empower itself by adopting the latest IT trends.

According to the estimate, a staggering $6 billion worth of energy is lost in the U.S. every year. However, with advancements like Smart Grid solutions, it is now possible to detect where power is being lost, and remotely control and automate the transmission through cloud computing. With IT pervading into domestic utilities through the introduction of smart meters and appliances, customers are also able to account for micro-generations of their electric utility which enables them to get accurate billing and allows for predictive analysis which help conserve energy. This kind of data analysis prevents energy wastage and improves safety regulations, thus keeping costs down and reliability up.

With innovation leading change in the way energy is perceived and harnessed, companies need to be quick to adopt them into their strategies or fear the risk of falling behind. To help CIOs choose the best providers available in the market, in this edition, CIOReview has compiled a list of the top companies that are making significant advances in the energy technology space.
