Cloud-Based Solutions Offers New Ways for Buildings to Boost Energy Efficiency

FARMINGTON, Conn., Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Redefining the way we use data, cloud computing has benefited enterprise and industry alike. As cloud-based technology moves into the realm of building energy management (BEMS) incorporating new dimensions to make buildings more energy-efficient, the market for BEMS will witness a complete shift. Innovative cloud-based solutions are slowly finding acceptance among different global markets for BEMS by offering an economically viable solution to small and medium-sized consumers who are unwilling to install high-cost software. The cloud BEMS market has significant future prospects, but will see its penetration restricted to only a few segments of the market, notably the commercial and industrial sectors. The cloud BEMS market and the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) market will be helpful for commercial establishments that need to monitor the energy consumption of multiple outlets and compare their performance.

Building Energy Management System (BEMS) - Global Market Size, Market Share and Competitive Landscape Analysis to 2020

The global market for Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS) will grow at a gradual pace over the forecast period, though it will see signs of slowing down of market growth in North America and Europe during the latter half of 2011-2020. The global BEMS market will grow at a CAGR of 8.9% during the 2011-2020 period, driven mostly by the emergence of the markets of Asia-Pacific and Eastern Europe. The markets in Europe and North America will be driven mostly by regional targets for energy-efficiency and reductions in the cost of energy consumption. In Asia-Pacific, it will be quite some time before the level of awareness about energy-efficiency among building operators and owners in this region matches that of operators in the Western nations.

Services for the installation, design and engineering of BEMS account for the largest share of the global market. This is largely attributed to the dominance of the large building sector in the BEMS market, which requires services to install energy management systems. The service market for BEMS accounted for 50% of global revenues in 2011 and is not expected to undergo any major changes during 2012-2020. The service market has seen the emergence of system integrators who play a key role in helping building owners and managers decide the selection of BEMS equipment to meet their requirements.

Power Markets in Emerging Economies - Market Outlook, Capacity and Generation, Opportunities and Challenges to 2020

With the growing focus on reducing greenhouse gases and increasing the role of clean generation sources, renewable power generation is likely to witness robust growth. Between 2005 and 2011, the total renewable installed capacity of the seven emerging countries covered in this report increased at a CAGR of 37.6% and was estimated at 101.3 GW in 2011. BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China) accounted for 94.5% of the total installed renewable capacity of the seven emerging nations. China accounted for the largest share with 67.4% of the renewable capacity out of the seven emerging countries in 2011.

The combined renewable capacity is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.1% from 126.5 GW in 2012 to 403.2 GW in 2020. This high growth is mainly driven by the large renewable capacity addition expected in India and China.
