Assessment of Strategy and Execution for 16 Home Energy Management Vendors

Home energy management (HEM) is a broad market segment with numerous hardware and software vendors seeking to gain market share. Navigant Research defines HEM technologies and services along a continuum of five somewhat distinct categories. These include paper bills, web portals, standalone HEM, in-home displays (IHDs), and networked HEM. As the market grows, software platforms will continue to play an important role in how consumers interact with hardware and applications, such as utility demand response (DR) or energy efficiency programs, that enable them be more efficient users of energy and lower their bills.

Navigant Research expects steady growth for HEM products and services through 2020. The HEM market has struggled to gain traction in past years, particularly from a utility standpoint. But the market has picked up momentum since the first part of 2012, as non-utility stakeholders have moved in and started to lay the groundwork for growth. Companies like ADT, Verizon, Comcast, and AT&T in the United States have added energy management as an optional package that can be bundled with home security, automation, or internet access. Navigant Research forecasts a brisk, if not robust, HEM market, with global revenue peaking at approximately $2.8 billion in 2020.
This Navigant Research Leaderboard Report examines the strategy and execution of 16 companies that offer HEM software solutions and rates them on 12 criteria. Using Navigant Research’s proprietary Leaderboard methodology, vendors are profiled, rated, and ranked with the goal of providing industry participants with an objective assessment of these companies’ relative strengths and weaknesses in the global HEM market.
