Abstract

This IDC MarketScape assesses the capabilities and strategies of leading service vendors to support electricity companies in transforming and optimizing their grids (high, medium, and low voltage). IDC Energy Insights believes grid digital transformation is a must to handle the business needs of today and tomorrow. The report has a regional perspective covering EMEA. It analyzes quantitative and qualitative characteristics to provide metrics and context for utilities evaluating vendors in this area, examines vendors' comparative success in the marketplace, and looks at how vendor offerings will evolve. The evaluation is based on a comprehensive and rigorous framework that assesses vendors relative to the criteria and highlights the most influential factors for success in this market, both in the short and long term.

"The energy transition is already posing new challenges to grid operators. Both transmission and distribution companies have to revisit their business operations, enable new business models, act as market facilitators, and possibly even introduce new tariff mechanisms," said Roberta Bigliani, vice president, IDC Energy Insights. "Grid digital transformation is a must to handle the business needs of today and tomorrow. Key use cases will have to be implemented to manage predictive grids, integrated distributed energy, and strategic asset management."
