Consumers in U.S are expressing an interest in increasing their communication with their utility provider as a means of obtaining greater levels of control. Government support has been instrumental in the rapid forward movement of United States smart grid IT systems market. It has provided necessary funding as well as education on the value it will have to individuals, the energy industry and the nation by reducing U.S. dependence on foreign oil and allowing us to better manage the country’s long-term energy needs.

Among the software, advanced metering infrastructure is a dominant segment holding the largest market share. It empowers customers and utilities with real Time information regarding energy use. It is a key element in the U.S. government’s push for electric grid modernization.

California regulatory agencies such as the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) and state energy policy and planning agencies such as the California Energy Commission (CEC) are continuing to launch a broad range of smart grid initiatives. Government objectives is aimed to increase use of cost-effective digital information and control technology to improve reliability, security, and efficiency of the electric grid.

Some of the key participants in U.S. market are Green Charge Networks, Bit Stew, Duke Energy, Enbala Power Networks, Enphase, Florida Power & Light, Green Charge Networks, Greensmith Energy Management Systems, Gridco Systems, New Brunswick Power Corporation, NRG Home, Opower, S&C Electric Company, Sacramento Municipal Utility District, Schneider Electric, SolarCity, Stem, Sunverge Energy Inc., Tendril. IN 2017, FPL became the first utility in the industry to tackle momentary power outages that last less than one minute. These outages cost industrial, commercial and residential customers billions of dollars each year.
