With the growth in distributed generation also comes the need for new business models to monitor and coordinate those disparate assets. As those businesses mature, they too become M&A targets. For example, in 2015, the energy monitoring company Genscape acquired Locus Energy, which provides data analytics and performance monitoring for distributed photovoltaic assets. While still in the early stages, state energy reform is fostering growth in distributed generation. New York's Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) is perhaps the most ambitious of such policies. At its base, REV seeks to reform the utility business model such that the utility serves to coordinate a system of distributed energy resources provided to the grid by other third parties.
