This week, Navigant Research issued a new report entitled “Navigant Research Leaderboard Report: Demand Response” that assessed 13 leading demand response providers on strategy and execution. Evaluations were based on ten criteria, including vision, go-to-market strategy, partners, technology, geographic reach; sales, marketing, and distribution; product performance, product portfolio, pricing, and staying power.
Navigant Research DR Leaderboard 2015We couldn’t be more pleased that Comverge received the highest score and as a result, was ranked by Navigant as the number one demand response vendor! In addition, we were one of only two companies in the “Leaders” category. As noted in the report, “To qualify for the Leaders category, a company must perform exceedingly well in both Strategy and Execution-there are not many companies that currently meet these requirements.”

Navigant analysts Brett Feldman and Neil Strother acknowledged Comverge’s diversified solution portfolio, leading role in the U.S. residential market, flexible enterprise software platform, integration with third-party thermostats, and growing presence in international demand response markets.
