Home Energy Management Ecosystem

On World, Date of Publication: Apr 16, 2012, 120 Pages

The strategy of moving home energy intelligence into the cloud is disrupting the Smart Home market and expanding opportunities for the Home Area Network. IP based home automation services, a large web-centric developer community and accelerating Smart Grid initiatives are driving adoption for home energy management solutions. By the end of 2012, there will be over a million managed Smart Home systems installed in North America.

Widespread home networks and the ubiquity of smart mobile devices are key drivers for home energy management services. Smart home service providers are adding real-time energy monitoring and cloud-based energy services that consumers are increasingly likely to access and control using their smartphones and tablets. Compared with the last survey of early technology adopters in September 2010, almost two times as many of the respondents to the current survey, completed in January 2012, indicate that they would prefer to use their tablet or smartphone as their energy display or interface.

Another growing trend is the development of "set-and-forget" systems that provide effortless energy savings. Over 70% of the recent survey respondents indicate that "automated systems that require minimal time/effort" are an important consideration for home energy management products and services. In 2016, global home energy management (HEM) revenues will be $4.3 billion and cloud service revenues will increase 30 times from 2011. Home service providers and retail channels will make up 57% of the cloud-based energy services at this time.
