The 2017 Grid Edge Awards: Projects Defining the Future Integrated, Interactive Electric Grid
Our annual awards for companies leading the distributed energy transition.
April 07, 2017
This year’s award winners — nominated by and voted on by energy industry stakeholders, including the team of analysts at GTM Research — represents an even broader set of participants in this energy revolution. First, the awards were expanded to accept submissions from companies or projects based outside the U.S., as well as individual commercial, industry or public energy consumers who have deployed distributed energy solutions on-site.
Second, our 2017 Grid Edge Awards include hard data from projects that are putting each winning company or project’s innovations to the test — a nod to the real-world growth we’ve seen emerge since we started tracking the field four years ago.

Tangent Energy Solutions specializes in enabling commercial and industrial customers, government agencies and utilities to capture the value of distributed energy resources. The company’s DERMS technology integrates customers into the grid edge, complete with the managed services and DER assets needed to participate in those opportunities. Working with retail energy providers allows Tangent to monetize C&I DER participation directly on customer energy bills.
So far, Tangent has worked with 8,000 customers in a dozen different business verticals, with more than 3,000 megawatts of managed DERs in its portfolio.
