May 3, 2002 — A new market survey conducted by InfoNetrix has identified $67 million in transmission and distribution management systems (TDMS) project activity among U.S. and Canadian electric utilities.
The Q1-2002 TDMS Tactical Project Activity Report contains detailed findings about utility automation projects being planned by 200 of the 1,000 utilities that will be surveyed by the InfoNetrix market research and consulting team by year-end.
“We are very pleased with the results of our first quarter data gathering and the resulting project activity report,” commented Mike Smith, Director of Tactical Market Research at InfoNetrix. “The depth and breadth of our market coverage allows us to provide detailed market and project activity information to our clientele on both a macro- and a micro-scale.” Smith added that the results of the report were also presented at the firm’s Spring TDMS Executive Market Summit, held in Atlanta, GA on April 22, 2002.
“These semi-annual market briefings are designed to keep our clients and other attendees on the cutting edge of market intelligence in a way that cannot be achieved through published reports alone,” Smith concluded.
The Q1-2002 report contains the results of interviews conducted with managers at 200 electric utilities across the United States and Canada by InfoNetrix market analysts between January and April 2002 and documents both existing and planned TDMS projects.
Each of the four quarterly project reports issued by InfoNetrix during the year covers a full spectrum* of utility automation products, systems and services for transmission and distribution operations including Energy Management Systems, SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition), Distribution Management Systems and Substation Automation. Subsequent quarterly reports will be published on July 19, 2002; October 18, 2002; and January 17, 2002.
