Utility Transformations

Home energy management (HEM) is a broad market segment covering technologies and services that consumers use to help them better manage and control their home energy consumption. According to Navigant Research’s definition, HEM technologies and services include home energy reports, web portals, standalone HEM, in-home displays (IHDs), and networked HEM. In the 2 years since the last iteration of this report, the HEM market has seen tremendous change. Some companies have pulled ahead, some have left the market to pursue other goals, and some have settled into their specialized HEM roles.

LB-HEM-15 Chart

Navigant Research expects steady growth for HEM products and services through 2023. The HEM market has struggled to gain traction in the past, particularly from a utility standpoint. However, it began picking up momentum in 2014, when non-utility stakeholders started making bolder moves. The initial jolt came from Google’s early 2014 purchase of Nest Labs, which signaled that a giant tech company saw something valuable in smart thermostats and connected home devices. Thermostat vendors have followed suit by becoming active outside of hardware devices. According to Navigant Research, the global HEM revenue is expected to peak at a little over $3 billion in 2020.

Transportation Efficiencies

The first combinations of advanced driver assistance features, now available in some 2016 vehicle models, offer semi-autonomous driving under specific circumstances. Cars will soon have the ability to cruise on freeways and safely navigate traffic jams with minimal driver input. As a result of increasing volumes and technology improvements, as well as cost reductions, it is now feasible to install the multiple sensors necessary for such capability.

The industry consensus is that more comprehensive self-driving features will be brought to market by 2020. Such features will enable more complex automated driving, but still require some supervision by a competent driver. However, the obstacles to autonomous functionality are not all technological. While more testing is still needed to develop robustness, the biggest practical hurdles to clear before the rollout of self-driving vehicles to the public are related to liability, regulation, and legislation. In the long term, though, autonomous vehicle technology has the potential to institute major change in personal mobility, particularly in large cities.

Electric VehiclesTransportation Efficiencies

Global automotive manufacturers continue their efforts to produce more vehicles utilizing electric drivetrains. Most OEMs have introduced battery electric vehicle (BEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) models, almost all of which use lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries for onboard energy storage. Increasingly, hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) are beginning to use Li-ion batteries instead of nickel-metal hydride (NiMH), and now stop-start vehicles (SSVs) using Li-ion batteries are entering the market. When designing electric or electrically assisted powertrains, OEMs continue to tailor their design approach to each model, factoring in not only economy, but also vehicle range, driver experience, and performance.

The immediate future looks to be secure for the Li-ion chemistry, and the move now is to continue to reduce costs while increasing energy density and vehicle range. These factors will lead to a greater percentage of BEVs being equipped with larger battery packs that can meet the standard that Tesla has established for vehicle range.

Natural Gas Vehicles and InfrastructureSmart Cities

Moving and transferring goods are an essential part of the global economy, and ports are the primary mechanism for transferring cargo from ships to eventual land destinations. In port operations, ocean-going ships, yard trucks, forklifts, cranes, drayage trucks, and railcars all have significant impacts on the surrounding environment, mainly through the burning of diesel fuel. However, different technologies and strategies are providing ports with the capability to drastically improve energy efficiency and become more sustainable. These include the use of shore power, upgrading or retrofitting cargo equipment to run on electricity or natural gas, and incentive programs designed to encourage reduced and cleaner fuel usage.

Navigant Research projects that the use of shore power will ultimately become the most impactful tool in making ports more energy efficient, largely due to the enormous associated environmental improvements when using this technology and the existing shore power regulatory requirements in California and the European Union. Shore power equipment suppliers are expected to see an increase in market opportunities over the forecast period, particularly in these favorable regulatory environments and the emerging markets in Asia Pacific. According to Navigant Research, the global market for shore power utility electricity revenue in port operations is expected to grow from $32.0 million in 2015 to $334.7 million in 2024.

This Navigant Research report examines the energy-efficient port operations market, with a particular focus on natural gas drayage trucks and shore power.

The microgrid market is still wide open when it comes to market players and future opportunities for growth and maturation. Navigant Research has profiled more than 50 companies over the last 6 years, and the list of companies entering the microgrid space continues to grow. Meanwhile, utilities are shifting from staunch opposition to the concept of microgrids to curious investigations of business models and technology trends that portend to change the way they have traditionally done business.

LB-MGC-15 Chart

One of the key compelling features of a grid-tied microgrid is its ability to separate and isolate itself from a utility’s distribution system during brownouts or blackouts (its islanding ability). Another is its ability to integrate diverse distributed energy resources (DER) into clusters that can then provide greater value, such as integrating microgrid services into market operations. This is the focus of private investments in microgrids in mature economies. Under today’s grid protocols, the vast majority of distributed generation (DG), whether renewable or fossil-fueled, must typically shut down during power outages, unless integrated with a transfer switch and/or energy storage device. As diverse DER make up a larger and larger percentage of the overall system’s resource base, including this new functionality is emerging as a major selling point.

Transportation EfficienciesTransportation Forecast

Global supplies of natural gas (NG) are abundant today due to the deployment of nontraditional extraction methods such as hydraulic fracturing. Consequently, prices of NG are staying low and its appeal as a fuel for ground vehicles is increasing. As fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions standards become increasingly stringent in world markets—particularly for medium and heavy duty vehicles (MHDVs), where electrification is less practical—NG is becoming an attractive alternative to diesel.

NG is an appealing option for reducing operating costs and CO2 emissions for many applications, especially high-mileage fleet operators and consumers in regions with high retail prices for liquid fuels. However, NG vehicles (NGVs) are only useful if refueling infrastructure is readily available. The density of refueling infrastructure varies widely and is frequently tied to government incentive programs. In addition, without a critical mass of vehicles in need of fuel, station operators are unwilling to invest in equipment—and without ready access to stations, retail customers do not buy NGVs. Yet, because NG is well-suited to larger vehicles such as refuse trucks and buses, fleet operators frequently take advantage of the low fuel cost by installing private stations in vehicle depots. According to Navigant Research, the total number of global NGV refueling stations is expected to grow from 23,001 in 2015 to 38,890 in 2025.

This Navigant Research report examines the key factors expected to influence the deployment of NGV refueling infrastructure, including economic growth, fuel prices, NGV sales, equipment costs, and regulations. The study provides an analysis of how all of these factors are projected to affect station operators, equipment suppliers, and gas suppliers. Global market forecasts, segmented by fuel (CNG and LNG), type of station (public vs. private), and region, extend through 2025. The report also examines the significant technical issues related to NGV refueling infrastructure, as well as the competitive landscape.

Key Questions Addressed:
  • How big is the market for natural gas vehicles (NGVs) both globally and regionally?
  • Which form of natural gas (NG) makes the most sense for various applications?
  • What are the key forces driving demand for NGV refueling infrastructure?
  • What are the pros and cons of compressed and liquefied natural gas (CNG and LNG) vehicles in different segments and regions?
  • Which companies are involved in the NGV refueling infrastructure market?
Who needs this report?
  • Refueling station operators
  • Natural gas (NG) refueling infrastructure component and system suppliers
  • NG suppliers
  • Engineering and construction companies
  • Government regulators
  • Fleet operators
  • Investor community

There is no one single solar PV market. Local market conditions, retail electricity rates, incentives, and types of systems all vary widely and dramatically affect the cost of a system and its applicability to a region. Following years of solar PV module oversupply and unsustainable, often artificially low pricing, demand has finally caught up. 2015 is expected to be the year that the global solar PV market shifts from a high-cost, subsidized source of energy to a role in which it can compete with and displace other technologies.

Market activity is shifting from Europe to Asia Pacific and the United States as these markets reach maturity and near grid parity in terms of costs. There is also considerable opportunity in other regions, led by Chile, South Africa, and the Middle East. At the same time, solar PV is becoming a commodity. Solar PV technology costs have steadily declined and pathways to further cost reductions are being pursued. By the end of the decade, solar PV is expected to be cost-competitive with retail electricity prices without subsidies in a significant portion of the world. According to Navigant Research, global annual revenue from solar PV installations is expected to surpass $151.6 billion in 2024.

This Navigant Research report provides solar PV capacity and revenue forecasts through 2024, with a focus on distributed systems, broken down by region and select country. Policy issues and market drivers are detailed for each region, along with average prices over the forecast period.
