Because of our position in the marketplace, we see Energy Vendor IQ as a win-win solution that provides an essential link between utilities and vendors.
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) February 25, 2015
E Source has been at the hub of the utility industry for more than 25 years, forging relationships with utilities and their vendors with the goal of understanding the industry’s intricate market dynamics. Utilities and vendors are becoming increasingly intertwined as the industry enters an unprecedented and highly complex transitional period. Utilities are relying on vendors for software and technology developments and vendors are relying on utilities to bring their solutions to market. Energy Vendor IQ will help utilities and vendors make the right partnership choices to ensure their mutual success.
Energy Vendor IQ allows vendors to display pertinent information about their companies, increasing their odds of winning utility business. They’ll be able to include examples of their work to demonstrate qualifications as well as client lists, markets served, and company news. This will enable utilities to easily identify appropriate vendors for their projects and directly connect with them via the tool.
“Our member utilities ask us thousands of questions every year, and a large percentage of those research requests directly or indirectly relate to vendors’ capabilities in the topical areas we cover,” says Adam Maxwell, director of New Product Development for E Source. “On the other side of the coin, many vendors subscribe to E Source to leverage our broad network of North American utilities and our industry expertise. Because of our position in the marketplace, we see Energy Vendor IQ as a win-win solution that provides an essential link between utilities and vendors. The goal is twofold: to save utilities time and money in the lengthy vendor-selection process while increasing vendors’ visibility to our robust utility network. We believe that housing this information in a centralized location and cutting through the hype can help further the incredible rate of innovation we’ve been seeing lately.”
