The target for 2015 is to reach an aggregated figure of 10,000 PRIME DTCs. CG foresees a strong growth in the Smart Grid segment with ZIV solutions, especially after a successful year with key wins from some of the most relevant and innovative European Utilities such as Iberbrola, Gas Natural Fenosa in Spain, EDP in Portugal and ERDF in France, as well as a strategic win in Saudi Arabia that will open the door to a promising market growth in this financial year, 2015-2016.
