Description

As the global electric power industry shifts toward a clean, distributed energy ecosystem known as the Energy Cloud, energy efficiency programs are evolving past tools used to shave kilowatt-hours and therms. Specifically, electric energy efficiency in North America is moving to integrate other distributed energy resources (DER) to help ensure grid reliability, meet state and provincial efficiency requirements, and help some localities meet their emissions reduction targets or other energy goals. In this changing landscape, the energy efficiency market is seeing increasing merger and acquisition activity as energy efficiency program implementers position themselves to develop strong business models that meet changing customer needs.

Energy efficiency program implementers are third-party service providers that contract with utilities to assist the utility in achieving its energy efficiency target. Energy efficiency implementers are employing a variety of technologies to increase their capabilities and improve cost-effectiveness of energy efficiency initiatives that were previously out of reach. Navigant Research predicts a steady growth in the North American energy efficiency market over the coming decade.
