A new Leaderboard Report from examines the strategy and execution of 15 key influencers in the commercial building market for Internet of Things (IoT) lighting, with Philips Lighting, Acuity Brands, Eaton, and OSRAM ranked as the leading companies.

IoT lighting solutions bring connectivity to devices that were previously not connected and provide data (where data was not available) through the connection. The vendor ecosystem for this market is growing as additional company types, including those that do not manufacture their own luminaires, enter the market to focus on sensors and controls or platforms. : According to a new Leaderboard report from , Philips Lighting, Acuity Brands, Eaton, and OSRAM are the leading market influencers in the IoT for lighting sector.

“The Leaders within this report have separated themselves from the competition through a broad solution portfolio, strong partner relationships, and advanced technology development,” says Krystal Maxwell, research analyst at Navigant Research. “Contenders and Challengers in this market will need to improve in various ways, from expanding their solution offerings to increasing sales to differentiating themselves through unique features and applications.”

During the next decade, Navigant Research expects to see strong global growth for IoT lighting solutions thanks to technology advancements and customer demand for increased data and building insight. According to the report, the total global market for IoT lighting is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 23.9 percent from $808.2 million in 2018 to $5.5 billion in 2027.

The report, , evaluates 15 vendors in the IoT lighting for commercial buildings market. These players are rated on nine criteria: vision; go-to market strategy; partners; technology; geographic reach; sales & marketing; solution performance; solution portfolio; and staying power. Using Navigant Research’s proprietary Leaderboard methodology, vendors are profiled, rated, and ranked with the goal of providing an objective assessment of their relative strengths and weaknesses in the market for IoT lighting solutions in commercial buildings.

A perfect storm of enabling technologies, ubiquitous connectivity, end-user devices, and new applications will result in both threats and opportunities to the traditional utility model

A new white paper from explores the concept of the Neural Grid, identifying the critical components expected to transform legacy infrastructure into a platform that will eventually support a fully mature Energy Cloud environment.

Today’s smart grid enhances the traditional transmission and distribution (T&D) network with pockets of automation, connectivity, and centralized IT systems. But the grid of tomorrow, the Neural Grid, represents much more than Smart Grid 2.0. : According to a new report from , the Neural Grid is a vastly more powerful platform of hard and soft assets leveraging ubiquitous connectivity, the cloud, robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), edge computing, and pervasive sensing to perform a variety of energy and non-energy applications.

“In a nutshell, the Neural Grid takes the world’s largest machine—the grid—and gives it a brain,” says Richelle Elberg, principal research analyst with Navigant Research. “In this environment, data and intelligence reside largely in the cloud, managing the intersection of generation assets and distribution networks with energy customers, buildings, transportation infrastructure, city systems, distributed energy resources assets and more.”

In addition, asset ownership in the Neural Grid is diverse, and utility grid data and assets work with third-party data and assets to coordinate energy supply and demand. As the Neural Grid takes shape, the challenge for owners of legacy infrastructure will be to upgrade their networks with dynamic, intelligent, and autonomous features that enable more than the transport of electrons, supporting an open environment for new services creation.

The white paper, , defines the Neural Grid and identifies critical components of the ecosystem. It describes the conditions necessary for accelerated market expansion and highlights informative parallels which can be found in the telecom industry. Navigant Research also identifies the top five growth markets that stand to benefit as the smart grid investments of today transform into the Neural Grid market of the future.

While combined heat and power was the leading distributed energy resources choice for microgrids in 2017, solar is expected to lead by 2026

A new report from examines the market for microgrid enabling technologies (MET), providing global forecasts for capacity and revenue, segmented by technology and region, through 2026.

As one of many options to aggregate and optimize growing penetrations of distributed energy resources (DER), the microgrid platform allows for new levels of resilience and reliability, and can help organize mixed asset fleets of DER at the distribution network level. With the right set of control technologies, this platform can not only offer value streams to site hosts, but also provide value upstream to the larger grid. : According to a new report from , global cumulative MET implementation spending is expected to reach nearly $112 billion by 2026.

“Microgrids represent a key component of an emerging Energy Cloud focused on resilience and renewable energy integration,” says Peter Asmus, principal research analyst with Navigant Research. “Biomass, combined heat and power (CHP), diesel, fuel cells, hydroelectric, solar PV, and wind represent the lion’s share of potential revenue for microgrid implementation spending, and serve as the backbone of the microgrid value proposition: maximizing the value of onsite power generation.”

From a global perspective, CHP was the leading DER choice for microgrids in terms of capacity in 2017, with 655 MW deployed, followed by solar PV (392 MW), and then diesel (385 MW). By 2026, however, the MET landscape is expected to shift, with solar PV jumping to a commanding lead with 3,786 MW annually, followed by energy storage with 3,292 MW, according to the report.

The report, , analyzes the global market for MET, with a focus on eight DER: biomass, CHP, diesel, energy storage, fuel cells, hydroelectric, solar PV, and wind. The study provides an analysis of the market issues, including case studies, government incentives, and emerging standards, associated with MET. Global market forecasts for capacity and revenue, segmented by technology and region, extend through 2026. The report also examines the key technologies and hardware related to MET, as well as the competitive landscape. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the .
