"No longer in an infancy stage of development, all players such as utilities, service providers, integrators and investors must consider how the coming trends will affect the smart grid market as a whole as well as their potential in the space," comments Jason Rodriguez, Zpryme CEO and director of research. "To win utilities as a customer segment, businesses must identify the smart grid applications that will not only offer the greatest profit potential, but also those that fit the service-oriented business model."
