Market Opportunities and Challenges, Regulatory Issues, Key Technologies by Market Segment, Key Industry Players, and Global Market Forecasts

 

Utilities around the world are facing unprecedented challenges and complexities. The longstanding business objective of generating affordable and reliable electricity has been made significantly more complicated by increasing environmental and generation costs, rising demand, grid instability from renewables and electric vehicles, and increasingly stringent regulations on demand management, energy efficiency, and greenhouse gas emissions. Vendors of commercial building energy management systems (BEMS) are also facing business challenges in a rapidly evolving market landscape. New and innovative market entrants are competing with large and well-established energy companies and equipment manufacturers, information technology giants, and a host of other commercial energy management product and service providers.

 

Forward-thinking utilities are looking toward BEMS technologies for solutions to their challenges and for new benefits to provide to their customers. Commercial BEMS offerings help utilities boost the effectiveness of their energy efficiency (EE) and demand-side management (DSM) programs, understand customer energy use patterns, and engage multiple segments of their commercial client base with new and innovative money-saving programs. At the same time, commercial energy management vendors are finding that they can gain access to large new customer bases that were previously cost-prohibitive to access. The market for BEMS for utility customers is nascent, with most of the leading activity being driven by utilities in the United States and Canada. Pike Research estimates that global spending will reach $41 million in 2012, growing at a robust compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 29% through 2020, when the market will reach $319 million worldwide.

 

This Pike Research report examines the growing BEMS market for utility customers, with a focus on the inroads that utilities and commercial building energy management vendors are making as they partner with each other on innovative new programs, products, and services. The report details the drivers and hurdles on both the demand and supply side, as well as key market dynamics that have influenced this pairing. Characteristics of the key customer segments of large commercial clients as well as small to medium-sized businesses are presented, with discussion of future trends and market evolution in all global regions. Key industry players are profiled in depth and market forecasts for spending, broken down by region and by market segment, extend through 2020.

 

Key Questions Addressed:

 

-What are the key market dynamics influencing the partnership of utilities and commercial building energy management vendors?

-How can BEMS vendors adapt their product and services offerings to become more attractive to utilities and their programs?

-What key characteristics must a BEMS offering for utilities contain?

-What challenges do BEMS vendors face when attempting to partner with utilities?

-What regulatory and market factors in each world region will influence BEMS for utility customers spending in those regions?

-Who are the top market players in the BEMS for utility customers market?

-Who are the leading utilities that are influencing market dynamics and market growth?

-What are the forecasts for spending by utilities on BEMS through 2020?
