In the congealing global grid storage market,technology developers seek high-profile corporate partners to develop and market their wares while multi-national conglomerates target start-ups to access innovative IP at bargain prices. The 877 organizations and 949 strategic relationships that makeup the grid storage partnership network have evolved from a scatter plot of islanded developers into a spiderweb of interrelated partnerships. Weeding out the organizations with high potential from those without is essential to finding the right partner to improve technological performance and expand into new market segments. We used the Lux Innovation Grid technology value and business execution scores to extract top partnership prospects for the myriad suitors in the global grid storage network to highlight unique opportunities for strategic and prosperous long-term relationships.
