Residential demand response (DR) is a relatively old concept that harkens back to the 1970s, when it was first employed in the United States. At that time, DR was implemented as a component of the energy conservation focus of demand-side management (DSM) programs to encourage consumers to use less electricity during peak hours or to shift their energy use to off-peak times. Utilities have run residential direct load control (DLC) programs as forms of demand management for many years.

Traditional DLC programs paid customers an annual fee for agreeing to have a control device installed on their air conditioners. However, customers had no engagement with the program, and many would override the controls or quit the program if comfort was compromised. With the development of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and smart, two-way communicating thermostats in the last 10 years, notification, equipment, and customer limitations are being overcome. Utilities can discreetly dispatch customers according to system need and can get real-time feedback on performance and outages. Customers can control their own devices through mobile applications, making them more empowered. Navigant Research forecasts that global residential DR revenue will grow from $332.4 million in 2014 to $2.3 billion in 2023.

This Navigant Research report analyzes the global market for residential DR in five major geographic regions. The study provides an analysis of the market drivers and barriers, as well as global players and dynamics, associated with residential DR. Global market forecasts for residential DR sites, capacity, and revenue, broken out by DR program (DLC and dynamic pricing) and region, extend through 2023. The report also examines the main technologies related to residential DR and identifies the strengths and challenges of key industry players.

Key Questions Addressed:
  • What are the market drivers incentivizing residential demand response (DR) to expand in the United States and abroad?
  • What factors may inhibit the expansion of residential DR?
  • What new technologies are enabling residential DR to increase its penetration in the market?

The market for smart grid technologies is evolving rapidly as the need for a more responsive, automated power grid rises worldwide. The fundamental technology for injecting intelligence into the grid has been in existence for years – more than a decade in some cases. However, the past 18 to 24 months have seen accelerating technological advancements and shifting priorities among utility industry stakeholders.

Transmission system upgrades are driven by the need to interconnect offshore or remote wind and solar farms, as well as ongoing electrification across Asia Pacific and developing regions. Falling costs for devices and communications networking, combined with the increasing emphasis on reliability and energy efficiency, will lead to robust growth in the substation and distribution automation (SA and DA) markets. Meanwhile, government mandates, especially in Europe, will drive strong smart meter penetration gains over the next decade. At the same time, utilities are facing more competition than ever and squeezed margins. These issues, along with the proliferation of smart devices in the grid, will drive impressive growth in demand for more powerful utility IT solutions and analytics.

The high-voltage transmission system (HVTS) market is expanding globally. Growth across Asia Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa mimics the initial wave of electrification and transmission system growth seen during the 20th century in North America and Europe. Today, the mega-growth and electrification in China, India, and parts of the Middle East and Africa are similar to the rapid growth of major cities and industrial expansion in the early 1900s that drove the development of HVTSs in North America and Europe.

The HVTS vendor landscape is changing as focus shifts to rebuilding and extending the HVTS to utility-scale wind and solar in remote regions and deploying geographically expansive HVTS infrastructure across regions like China, India, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa. These efforts will create significant markets over the next decade. Meanwhile, industrial giants like Mitsubishi, Toshiba, Hyundai, Samsung, LSI, and Nexans and hundreds of smaller companies that were until recently on the fringes of the industry are joining the fight for sales in growing regional markets. Navigant Research forecasts that global annual HVTS revenue will grow from $20.8 billion in 2014 to $31.0 billion in 2023.

Today’s utility is challenged to modernize its grid to survive the present while being old-fashioned enough to ensure high quality and reliability in power delivery. In a smart distribution utility, energy is carefully managed to support smooth operation of critical infrastructure while facilitating a clean, economic, and safe environment in which to live, work, and play. Grid modernization is arguably the single most important focus for any utility as aging and congestion lead to power quality issues and more frequent outages.

Advanced, controllable dynamic Volt/VAR control architecture (DVCA) technologies and various Volt/VAR devices and control solutions can serve as oil in the machinery. They can keep transformers, generators, transmission lines, and distribution systems from overheating, reducing the risk of being retired or upgraded before the end of their intended lifespan. In areas with growing penetration of distributed energy resources (DER), Volt/VAR control (VVC) is emerging as an ancillary service to be provided by microgrids, power factor correction (PFC) systems, distributed PV, and electric vehicle (EV) chargers.

The evolution of energy markets is accelerating in the direction of a greater reliance upon distributed energy resources (DER). Successful strategies to manage this increasing two-way complexity are being deployed today all over the world. One such strategy is a virtual power plant (VPP), which can be viewed as a manifestation of the concept of transactive energy. Essentially, the VPP can combine a rich diversity of independent resources into a network via sophisticated planning, scheduling, and bidding of DER-based services.

Several recent trends are creating an environment conducive to VPPs. These include the increasing penetration of smart meters and other smart grid technologies, growth in variable renewable generation, and emerging markets for ancillary services. However, challenges to commercial rollouts of VPPs remain, including the lack of reliance upon dynamic, real-time pricing and consumer pushback against the smart grid. The end goal for this market is the mixed asset VPP segment, as it brings distributed generation (DG) and demand response (DR) together to provide a synergistic sharing of grid resources. Navigant Research forecasts that total annual VPP vendor revenue will grow from $1.1 billion in 2014 to $5.3 billion in 2023 under a base scenario.

This Navigant Research report analyzes the global VPP market, with a focus on three primary segments: DR, supply-side, and mixed asset VPPs. The study provides an analysis of the market issues, including business cases, market drivers, and implementation challenges, associated with VPPs. Global market forecasts for power capacity and vendor revenue, broken out by segment, region, and scenario, extend through 2023. The report also examines the key technologies related to VPPs, as well as the competitive landscape.

Key Questions Addressed:
  • What is the Navigant Research definition of a virtual power plant (VPP)?
  • How do the market dynamics differ for the three VPP market segments: demand response (DR), supply-side, and mixed asset?
  • What technologies are being deployed within VPPs globally?
  • Where are the projected hot spots for the three primary VPP segments over the next 10 years?
  • How do VPP business models differ among vendors?
  • How does the VPP fit into transactive energy trends?
  • Why is the VPP the ultimate example of the energy cloud concept?
