Top US Utility Investors in Demand Side Management - ZPryme

With Smart Grids in the foreseeable future, Demand-Side Management
(DSM) is on the cusp of a revolution that will forever alter the way
that homes and businesses use electricity. To add to the positive DSM
buzz, budgets to facilitate Smart Grid planning and implementation are
on the rise, according to a recent March survey by Microsoft. In the
survey, 73 percent of utility professionals and executives surveyed
said budgets for these efforts are on the rise. Governments and
utilities have long sought to improve DSM through conservation and
load management programs. To gain insight into this transformation,
Zpryme examined the level of investment by utilities in DSM over the
past 5 years while acknowledging their sales (MWh) and revenue.
