Global Energy Intelligence Solution Market: Overview
Global energy consumption is increasing rapidly as the world economy continues to evolve and flourish and population rises exponentially. A recent report published by the U.S. Energy Information Administration stated that global energy consumption is likely to increase by nearly 50% by 2040. Energy consumption will rise in developing regions such as Asia Pacific, where long-term and relatively strong economic growth along with high population density is driving demand for energy. The mature industrial sectors in developed parts of the world are driving sustained growth in energy consumption.
The global power generation industry is stretching its capacity to fulfill the present energy demand. Power generation capacities are rising relatively very slowly when compared to the rate at which the global power needs are rising. Thus to bring about a proper balance between this production and consumption ratio, a pressing need for introducing comprehensive energy management systems across domestic and industrial settings is witnessed.
Energy intelligence solutions, the software products, tools and services that deliver users the ability to collect data pertaining to energy consumption across a facility, are currently the best and most comprehensive energy management systems in the market. Energy intelligence systems are better than conventional energy management software on two fronts. Firstly, energy intelligence systems are not only visualization tools for collecting meter data, but are tools that suggest ways of reducing energy wastage. Secondly, these systems provide advanced domain knowledge for utilizing the collected energy data for efficient energy management.
Global Energy Intelligence Solution Market: Growth Drivers and Segmentation
Major factors driving the adoption of energy intelligence solutions are rising consumer awareness about the need to save power as a way of reducing personal electricity bills as well as the carbon footprint of the power generation industry, stringent government regulations pertaining to CO2 emissions, and the rising cost of electricity.
