The global energy management system market is projected to reach $1.70 billion in 2012. By 2020, the global market is projected to reach $9.98 billion. The market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 25%.Currently, EMS offerings are focused on energy optimization based on company-specified goals and preferences. However, in the future, EMS will also integrate operations optimization, and will automatically adjust settings for the highest levels of performance, in addition to providing energy savings. This report has been developed by Zpryme’s Smart Grid Insights Research Team and Zpryme’s Smart Grid Advisory Board.

Companies with multiple locations stand to benefit from advanced EMS deployments in terms of aggregated billing capabilities. Not only will advanced analytics help optimize power consumption across all sites, but they will streamline the data management, making the billing process simpler and more accurate. 7. On a more granular level, EMS will provide real time visibility into energy consumption with the ability to control the usage of any endpoint connected to the data network. This will provide businesses with unprecedented capability to proactively manage energy use, and allow utilities to make better use of dynamic pricing with customers, which will help align energy supply with real time demand conditions.7 [PREMIUM] ZPRYME SMART GRID INSIGHTS Energy Management 3.0: Advanced Systems for Commercial and Industrial Users | November 2012Copyright © 2012 Zpryme Research & Consulting, LLC All rights reserved. www.zpryme.com | www.smartgridresearch.org

Essentially, EMS will move towards the cloud, in which case costs come down but remain flexible enough for customers to customize around which endpoints they want a centralized system to control. In terms of components, this means solutions will be based less on hardware and costly field equipment, and more on software and sensors that provide real time connectivity between endpoints and the communications network driving EMS. 3. Both utilities and vendors need to understand the preferences of customers for EMS deployments. Larger businesses will want to own and manage the solution. They have the resources to do that, and in return they maintain full control over setting preferences to manage energy usage. Smaller businesses will prefer either a utility-managed or a vendor-managed solution, which will be less costly30 [PREMIUM] ZPRYME SMART GRID INSIGHTS Energy Management 3.0: Advanced Systems for Commercial and Industrial Users | November 2012Copyright © 2012 Zpryme Research & Consulting, LLC All rights reserved. www.zpryme.com | www.smartgridresearch.org
