Corporate sustainability initiatives have become prominent, public-facing components of Fortune Global 500 and large company business plans. Driven by the desire to reduce the negative environmental impacts of their businesses while optimizing onsite energy management, companies are exploring a variety of onsite distributed energy resources (DER) technologies as mechanisms to optimize facilities' energy use. Adoption of specific technologies varies across industries. Even in a given industry, companies are taking different approaches to using onsite energy technologies such as generation, storage, EVs, and participation in demand side management (DSM) programs.
The DER market is trending toward bundled service offerings that allow companies to optimize energy management through integrated onsite DER ecosystems. In 2019, while solutions providers are moving toward bundled services, many corporate leaders deploy relevant DER technologies as individual tools to achieve sustainability or utility bill savings goals. By integrating onsite DER, companies are able to improve customer relationships, use cost-saving new technologies, and drive the global clean energy transformation. Onsite energy leadership may be demonstrated through the visible presence of clean energy structures at corporate sites.
This Navigant Research report explores the current landscape of corporate onsite DER deployments. The report analyzes the context of corporate DER deployments including goals for energy optimization, benefits and challenges associated with deployment, varying needs across industries, and DER as a tool for success in climate-focused legislative and regulatory landscapes. This study provides recommendations for solutions providers and energy managers looking to deploy DER technologies at corporate facilities over the coming decade.
