Industry Analysis & Industry Trends
The Electric Power Transmission industry stagnated over the past five years due to lower per capita energy consumption and weak price growth. However, the adoption of smart grid technology has bolstered grid reliability and lowered operating costs, resulting in improved profit margins. In the next five years, businesses and factories will expand operations and bolster electricity consumption. Additonally, PUCs are expected to grant rate increases for renewable energy transmission investments. As a result, revenue will grow and profitability will improve... purchase to read more
Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter
The Electric Power Transmission industry provides electricity distribution, transmission and wholesale services. Utilities transmit and distribute electricity generated from a variety of fuel sources, such as coal, natural gas and nuclear power. Currently, transmitted electricity is separated into two categories, base load and intermittent electricity. Base load electricity, which is generated from reliable fuel sources, provides electricity during all hours of the day. Intermittent electricity, typically less reliable than base load electricity, is generated from renewable sources such as solar and wind power.
