Building-to-Grid Integration

New Business Models and Revenue Opportunities through Technology Deployment in Commercial and Industrial Buildings:
Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

The transformation of the energy system presents a crossroads to the three main intelligent buildings market constituents: utilities/energy providers, technology vendors, and building owner/operators. Business benefits for innovators of the building-to-grid (B2G) platform include lower costs and sustained profits for a stronger bottom line and new revenue streams for top line growth for the three key constituent groups. B2G also represents an opportunity for major commercial and industrial (C&I) building constituents to address their need to transform legacy business models to stay relevant in a rapidly evolving technology marketplace.

The development of intelligent buildings relies on the adoption of information technologies, controls, automation, and services that optimize the performance of building systems within a facility. The intelligent building represents a paradigm shift for businesses through the integration of facilities management and IT that unifies strategy, investment, and decision-making. The idea of B2G takes the intelligent building further by creating a cohesive approach for data-driven optimization of systems inside the walls of the facility and across campuses including onsite DER. According to Navigant Research, global revenue for C&I B2G integration is expected to grow from $1.3 billion in 2017 to $28.8 billion in 2026.

This Navigant Research report analyzes the global market for B2G integration in three key segments: smart grid IT, building optimization, and DER controls and optimization. The report provides an analysis of the market issues, including use cases, opportunities, and challenges, associated with the development of the B2G platform in the Energy Cloud. Global market forecasts for revenue, broken out by segment and region, extend through 2026. The study also examines the enabling technologies related to B2G, as well as the standard business models.
