The paper deals with an updated Greiners model, defining its final stage, Development through Alliance, in the frame of actual knowledge based economy, and with introduction and characterization of its final crisis, Incompatibility crisis. The research method is based on analysis of SMEs characteristics that use concentrated energies technologies, correlated with characteristics of actual economy.
