Sentient Energy Ranked as Leader in Distribution Grid Sensing and Measurement Solutions by Guidehouse Insights
Frisco, TX – May 9, 2023 – Sentient Energy, the leading provider of intelligent line sensors and grid analytics solutions for the distribution grid, has been ranked number one in the Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard for Distribution Grid Sensing and Measurement Solutions.
The Guidehouse Insights report assesses the competitive landscape for advanced distribution grid sensing and measurement solutions providers, and how well different companies are positioned to address customer needs. Sentient Energy was ranked highest in strategy and execution in providing innovative line sensing, data analytics, optimization and control technologies for the distribution grid. The company’s comprehensive grid edge hardware and software solutions help electric utilities make data-driven decisions to enhance the delivery of safe, reliable and efficient power.
“The market for advanced distribution grid sensing and measurement solutions is reaching an inflection point, spurred by accelerating deployment of distributed energy resources (DER), particularly behind the meter, growing resiliency demands on the part of regulatory bodies worldwide, and increased instances of devastating storm and wildfire events,” says Richelle Elberg, principal research analyst with Guidehouse Insights. “While visibility into the distribution grid has historically been low relative to the transmission grid, the stage is set for accelerated demand for advanced distribution grid sensing and measurement solutions.”
Several market drivers are propelling the adoption of distribution sensing and measurement globally. Largely, this growth is fueled by the ongoing transition to a digital and decentralized grid. Mounting DER penetration is another key market driver. In areas where electric vehicle (EV) or solar penetration is growing, utilities must understand the changing load profiles on those feeders. A high degree of overnight EV charging or a concentrated area of rooftop solar panels can drastically alter the timing and scale of a utility’s energy demand versus what it may have experienced over many decades of relatively stable load growth, according to the report.
Sentient Energy’s intelligent sensing solutions are used globally by utilities of every size and deployed in over 25 of North America’s largest utilities. With Sentient Energy, utilities achieve up to 20% reduction in outage time and up to 60% patrol cost savings.
