Smart Energy Communities - Energy Technologies and Solutions for Smart Cities, Districts and Communities: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts
Published: November 2, 2020 Content info: 45 Pages; 18 Tables, Charts & Figures
Description

As the nature of energy generation and use becomes more distributed, more flexible, and more digital, entire communities are beginning to combine various emerging energy technologies and achieving greater levels of grid resilience and reliability at a lower financial cost. Whether isolated islands, green field residential developments, or urban multifamily housing blocks, communities are growing more interested in combining renewable energy generation, energy storage, smart meters, green buildings, blockchain, and other technologies to exert more control over their energy usage.

The development of the smart energy community market is being driven primarily by the demands of the end consumer. Energy consumers are also expressing an interest in using energy that is generated locally and that they can partly control, as opposed to the grid mix that energy generators have provided for them. Motivated by the pressures of this growing pool of distributed energy resources (DER), a desire for more reliable service, and mounting environmental regulation, grid authorities are exploring new ways of organizing and managing their grid to maintain an acceptable level of grid balance. This organization is increasingly taking place at the grid edge and driving the development of smart energy communities. The smart energy communities market is also encountering resistance in a few forms, primarily in dealing with policy entrenchment, slow technology adoption, and hesitation from some residential groups.

This Guidehouse Insights report analyzes the global market for technologies that are often combined in smart energy community concepts. The market forecast provides an analysis of market issues, including emerging trends, opportunities, and barriers, for the deployment of these community-based configurations of smart energy technology. Global market forecasts are included for all world regions, including breakouts by advanced energy technologies and smart grid applications, and extend through 2030. The report also examines key issues related to the development of smart energy communities as well as select industry players and case studies.
