As the electric grid becomes more diverse, a sophisticated system of sensing, measurement, condition monitoring, and asset management solutions must be deployed

A new report from analyzes the technologies and strategies capable of enhancing sensing and measurement for transmission and distribution (T&D) networks, providing global market forecasts for eight equipment categories, segmented by technology category and region, through 2026.

During the next decade, utilities worldwide will undertake significant investments in automation and monitoring solutions in substations, T&D lines, transformers, and more as they look to upgrade and replace aging infrastructure. Driven by increasing demands for distributed generation, such as wind and solar, and coupled with pressure from regulators and customers for enhanced grid intelligence, T&D sensing and measurement (TDSM) devices are likely to have a significant role in paving the way toward a more advanced, self-monitoring, and self-healing electric grid. : According to a new report from , global revenue for TDSM technology is expected to reach $4.8 billion by 2026.

“The power industry is in the early stages of a radical paradigm shift that will see the traditional one-way system of towers and lines connecting a power plant to an electric customer transform into a complex network characterized by bidirectional power flow, pervasive communications, and high levels of automation,” says Michael Hartnack, research analyst at Navigant Research. “As the grid becomes more diverse, a sophisticated system of sensing, measurement, condition monitoring, and asset management solutions must be deployed.”

According to the report, as the cost of sensors and connectivity falls, utilities are expected to deploy TDSM systems farther and faster than ever before. An advanced sensor, paired with real-time communications and analysis, provides a utility with vital system health information and tools for monitoring asset functionality, assessing safety risks, and preventing extended network interruptions.

The report, , examines the technologies and strategies being adopted to enhance sensing and measurement capabilities on T&D networks. The study provides an analysis of the market issues, including drivers and barriers, associated with TDSM solutions. Global market forecasts for eight TDSM equipment categories, segmented by technology category and region, extend through 2026. The report also examines the key technologies related to sensing and measurement hardware and software in the global T&D market, as well as the competitive landscape.

Technology advancements and customer demand for increased data and building insight are expected to contribute to strong global market growth during the next decade

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. The white paper is available for free download on the .
