Energy as a Service Overview

Commercial and Industrial Energy as a Service Solutions: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

Corporate commercial and industrial (C&I) energy and sustainability managers have new options to address their energy management needs. These customers are looking for cost-effective, customized, and comprehensive solutions that can guarantee energy savings that transfer project execution risk without CAPEX to meet sustainability and operational efficiency needs. Meanwhile, energy suppliers and vendors are introducing a broader set of turnkey, portfoliowide, sector-specific options to meet customer energy management needs. These financed distributed energy resources solutions and new business models are defining how new energy as a service (EaaS) solutions will be deployed across various C&I segments.

The EaaS market consists of third-party vendors, utility services companies, and potential business model disruptors deploying niche technical, financing, or procurement solutions like solar PV power purchase agreements, energy services performance contracts, and deregulated electricity market retail brokerage services. As the EaaS market matures, it is expected to give rise to the outsourcing of energy portfolios and turnkey vendors equipped with a comprehensive set of technical, financing, and deployment model options. According to Navigant Research, the annual global market for the deployment of C&I EaaS is expected to reach $278 billion by 2028.

This Navigant Research report analyzes the global market for the deployment of turnkey EaaS focused primarily on large Fortune 500 equivalent C&I customers. The study provides an analysis of the drivers, barriers, trends, financing transaction and business models, and key players associated with EaaS offerings. Global market forecasts, segmented by region, application, and deployment model, extend through 2028. The report also examines key applications related to EaaS, as well as the vendor landscape.
