Energy Management Systems (EMS) Market- Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth and Forecast 2017 - 2025
Energy management systems (EMS) consist of hardware and software control systems designed to monitor and manage energy consumption and usage in buildings. They are aimed to optimize the entire energy consumption process in buildings, improve the utilization of electrical system, and reduce utility costs. EMS include sensors and other automation systems to collect and analyze crucial data on processes pertaining to lighting, power, security systems, and fire. Over the past few years, the implementation of these systems is gaining traction among facility managers (FMs) and enable them to make strategic management decisions to improve the bottom-line of organizations. The demand for intelligent energy management practices is propelling the adoption of EMS across regions.
In recent years, the Internet of things (IoT) technology has increasingly being integrated with EMS to make building smarter. IoT furnishes FMs with real-time data and analytics to help them make preventive and predictive maintenance by automating processes in EMS. In several implementations, the IoT technology influences various retrofitting decisions taken by facility managers. The IoT integration with EMS is gaining popularity in commercial building infrastructure in various developing and developed regions. One of the best ways to adopt IoT in EMS is to begin with integrating all lighting systems. The integration will provide utility companies enhanced visibility and better operational control of the energy transmission networks. IoT is expected to remain a key trend in building asset monitoring technologies for some years as it is likely to continuously improve the capabilities of EMS. However, what’s is more important for organizations implementing EMS is to act proactively on all the information gathered by their facility managers. This will go a long way to achieve the goal of smart buildings.
Energy management systems (EMS) refer to innovative digital solutions incorporating sensors, hardware, software, communication networks, and control systems, primarily installed at organizational levels to help develop a systematic process that improves the electricity consumption pattern and reduces the overall energy consumed by the organization. By keeping a track of terminals leading to substantial energy losses and/or consuming impractical amounts of power, and communicating essential data with a central system, energy management systems help companies make necessary reforms and develop sustainable energy models.
Energy management systems allow organizations to overcome challenges such as tracking faulty terminals in power generation and distribution infrastructure and reducing capital expenditures by enhancing utilization of present infrastructure assets. The power industry being one of the largest sources of carbon being released in the environment, leading to global warming and several other environment issues, there has been an increased focus on the ways of optimizing energy usage and efficiency across every possible end-use segment.
A vast rise in efforts by government and private bodies to raise awareness regarding the pressing need to effectively manage energy consumption is a key factor driving the global energy management systems market over the past few years. In the next few years, the adoption of energy management solutions is expected to be chiefly driven due to stringent government policies concerning energy conservation and efficiency. Efforts aimed at educating end-users about the significance of saving energy, which could further help in enhancing bottom-line profits for organizations, which end-up spending a massive chunk of their annual funds powering a plethora of internal processes, is also expected to drive the market.
However, the aspect of energy management becomes a minor goal in the periods of economic downturns or for cash-strapped industries owing to financial constraints surrounding the implementation of EMS. In such scenarios, implementation of EMS could take a backseat, which is expected to act as a restraint for the market. Educating costumers regarding energy management can act also as a challenge since end users and enterprises focuses more on initial investments and less on long term benefits.
