“The U.S. government realizes they must incentivize
energy conservation and are finally seeing the ARRA funds come into play.
Companies such as GE, Siemens, Itron, Elster, and Honeywell have been shining
examples of delivering Smart Grid technologies that will be the future of U.S.
energy infrastructure investments over the next ten plus years,” said Jason

grid investment will continue to rise in 2012

With Duke Energy having allocated $1 billion for U.S.
deployment efforts with other utilities such as PG&E, and South California
serving up major multi-million dollar investments, the overall U.S. smart grid
value chain is more than optimistic for long term growth industry segments such
as energy storage, cyber security, network management software, and analytics
will be key growth areas for 2012-13, according to Zpryme.
