I’m sure many of you in the Transmission industry are busy making preparations for the IEEE conference being held down in Dallas next week. As the Energy Acuity team gets ready setting meetings and mapping out the best routes through the exhibition floor, we always turn to our own database first and foremost to look for contacts and opportunities to build new relationships.

Transmission Lines

At other conferences, I’ve had several clients tell me how they’ve utilized the Energy Acuity database to prepare for the show. They explained that they search for companies that they should be targeting and then use the executive contact information to reach out to individuals that work for those companies and set up meetings. I was impressed with our clients’ use of the tool and thought that I too should be better prepared!

Before traveling out to IEEE we should all be asking ourselves “What can I do to make this a successful show? Who are the best companies for me to meet with? Do I know who the biggest players are in the transmission industry?” Let me help answer these questions for you by breaking down the top transmission companies in the industry. Whether you are looking to meet with transmission developers, EPC firms, or owners, I will provide you with the top companies in each market. The lists are compiled from the Market Share & Rankings tool within our database. The rankings are based on the total number of transmission projects that these companies are involved in.

  1. American Transmission Company
  2. Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA)
