Analyst’s Review on Building-To-Grid Technology
The building-to-grid (BtG) technology market is expected to witness significant growth in the next few years. Several initiatives by organizations such as the International Commission on the Futures of Education and the United Nations Commission on Science and Technology for Development has shown a growing interest in futuristic sustainable buildings with sophisticated energy management systems. These factors are expected to contribute positively to the growth of the BtG technology market.
Building-to-grid technology is a concept that involves the integration of buildings with the electrical power grid to enable two-way communication and optimize energy usage. Smart sensing, metering, and control technology are transforming the modern power system in its entirety. The rapid deployment of information technology allows major decision-makers, such as utilities and building owners, to attain exceptional levels of insight and comprehend their systems' operations. Technological progressions, including the creation of Phasor Measurement Units and smart thermostats, enable superior situational awareness for grid operators, unlocking prospects to boost the efficiency and grid responsiveness of commercial and residential buildings. The utilization of these innovations pledges substantial enhancements in the power system's reliability and effectiveness.
The integration of building-to-grid (B2G) technology is becoming increasingly popular due to multiple market conditions. One major driver is the global goals of modernizing the grids to smart grids and decarbonization, which has resulted in the push for innovative energy solutions. In addition, there has been a rise in energy prosumers, who are both consumers and producers of energy and who are seeking to maximize their energy efficiency and cost savings. Furthermore, the availability of enabling hardware and software has significantly improved due to technological advancements in the field of energy storage and management.
Supportive regulatory policies and government regulations have augmented the growth of the building-to-grid technology market. For instance, in 2021, the Department of Energy (U.S.) granted USD 6 million to the PGE (Portland General Electric) Smart Grid Project. The aim of this grant is to develop and integrate 500 buildings to smart grids with building-to-grid technology.
One of the most significant challenges is uniting behind common interoperability solutions. In order to function properly as a single system, all the different grid technologies must be able to communicate with one another. This means that all elements of the grid, from appliances to power plants, need to be able to exchange data and communicate in a standard, interoperable format.
Another factor that may impact the building-to-grid technology market growth is maintaining cybersecurity in the system. The interconnectedness of different grid technologies and the sensitive nature of the data that is exchanged on the grid makes it vulnerable to cyber threats. Cybersecurity needs to be a top priority for grid operators to ensure that the system is secure and reliable.
The global building-to-grid technology market is segmented based on technology, end-user, and geography.
Based on technology, the market is further categorized into smart sensing, smart metering, control technology, energy storage, and others.
