Research and Development

While some utilities search for ready-made “best practices” solutions in other markets, we help our clients be best practice setters by developing and testing research hypotheses grounded in their specific circumstances.

How we can help

Utilities fundamentally act as technology companies that help their customers unlock the value of new service offerings and regulation approaches that emerge every day.

METSCO’s R&D team led by senior IEEE members helps individual utilities and industry associations to remain in step with the rapidly expanding technological marketplace, by developing custom-researched industry scans and technology research reports grounded in technical competency, structure and realistic assessment of industry status quo.
