Forecasts for the Deployment of AMI and the Adoption of Energy-saving Products and Services

This report provides detailed forecasts for residential energy management solutions, presented in terms of market size and household penetration. Forecasts for systems installed in utility-based Home Area Networks (HANs) are derived separately from those installed in Independent REM Networks (iREM nets). Forecasts include those for programmable communicating thermostats, in-home energy monitoring displays, load control modules, and remote monitoring and control systems and services.

“Utility-based home area networks (HANs) represent only one of several possible paths for residential energy management solutions and services to enter the consumer market,” said Parks Associates. “In this report we provide an analysis of the market for solutions that work as part of independent (non-utility) residential energy management networks, which will grow more quickly than the HAN market over the next five years.”
