Grid-Scale Energy Storage in North America 2013: Applications, Technologies and Suppliers

DUBLIN, February 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5crbt5/gridscale_energy) has announced the addition of the "Grid-Scale Energy Storage in North America 2013: Applications, Technologies and Suppliers" report to their offering.

We are now entering the early growth stages of what will surely become a giant global industry - energy storage - which will both support and compete with conventional generation, transmission and distribution resources. The evolution of the industry will lead to new business models and the creation of new companies that make, apply and operate storage assets to help the grid work more reliably and cost-effectively, while decreasing unwanted environmental impacts.

At present most of North America's grid-scale applications lack the right mix of regulatory support, costs, revenues and other attributes to be economically viable opportunities. Some applications can and will generate an attractive return on investment today and represent a sizable and accessible market. These applications include frequency regulation, T&D deferral and/or substitution, renewable integration, and building energy management (BEM).

At just over 300 pages, this comprehensive new report pinpoints the most promising energy storage applications, geographic markets and market segments, and discusses the best business models and competitive strategies. The report also profiles over 150 companies that are active in the North American storage industry, including 25 that are particularly well positioned to succeed.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
