EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report provides suppliers and customers of smart grid solutions with an independent analysis of global smart grid market activity in the first quarter (Q1) of 2012. Verdantix selected this subject for detailed study to help executives in market-facing and corporate roles understand the state of the global smart grid market and identify the best smart grid opportunities for investment. The analysis, based on the quarterly Verdantix Smart Grid Deal Tracker, finds that during Q1 2012 energy storage accounted for the highest number of deals. These were largely driven by pilot projects seeking to leverage energy storage solutions to regulate the intermittency of power output from renewable energy sources. Analysis of the Q1 2012 Smart Grid Deal Tracker reveals that smart grid activity was not limited to North America, with a range of deals closed in China, Spain and the UK.
