Groom Energy has named Ecova a Smart Grid Vendor to watch in their report entitled ” The Enterprise Smart Grid – a Corporate Buyer’s Guide for Energy Management Software “.
The report is based on data collected from 65 interviews with corporate energy companies, facility and sustainability managers offering smart grid related technologies. The vendors were selected based on their aggressive produce development, innovation, customer proof points, strong market momentum and increased emphasis on enterprise – wide and multiple site implementations.
Jeff Heggedahl, Ecova chief executive officer, says, “Being included in the Groom report is an honor, particularly as the research was developed from the point of view of the enterprise client. This is how Ecova thinks about energy management as well. We are excited about the focus on the role of the utility in energy management, as we see this as a key differentiation for Ecova and our clients.
The $5.2 million energy management industry in the USA is growing at 40% per year according to Groom Energy.
Ecova says it has made significant acquisitions to broaden it’s energy and sustainability management portfolio, broaden it’s client portfolio, build it’s facility optimisation capabilities and extend it’s reach worldwide.
The author of the report, and Vice President for Research for Groom Energy Solutions, Paul Baier notes ” Companies looking to purchase solutions for reducing energy spend and greenhouse gas emissions are faced with a confusing and complex marketplace. Our report minimizes this confusion. Ecova was named one of the top 10 vendors to watch due to the broadening of its product line and strength in utility expense management.”
