ENEL Group Expecting Bad Weather

ENEL, the multinational manufacturer and distributor of electricity and gas, is betting on the role of weather forecasts in the Demand Response market.  With 19 patent assets in the weather forecast subcategory, it is way ahead of the next contender, Mitsubishi Corporation, who only has 3 assets. Recent weather anomalies certainly support this strategy. The record-setting temperature extremes will likely make demand response more widely implemented to prevent brownouts and blackouts

ENEL is the second largest power company in the world by revenue (after the State Grid Corporation of China). Maybe we should bet on it?
