Energy in the Connected Home 2015: Technology Evolution, Landscape and Distribution Strategies
Spurred by the rapid increase of consumer interest in smart devices, coupled with innovation in cloud platform development, the residential energy management market is entering its third phase, defined by an abundance of analytics-driven technologies.
In an environment that promotes energy efficiency and wider adoption of variable pricing schemes, state-mandated targets and efforts to improve peak load control led utilities to define and deploy HEMS 1.0 technology through direct load control and thermostat programs. More recently, however, bundled residential services from blue chip and start-up service providers that incorporate energy management have challenged utilities' limited incumbent position. By offering a greater variety of services that extend past traditional core competencies and into services that go beyond energy management, service providers are steadily realizing increased customer traction, as the market moves from point solution devices to holistic cloud-based platforms.
