BOULDER, Colo. -- August 7, 2013

The market for building energy management systems (BEMSs) continues to grow,
driven by technology advances as well as a growing familiarity among customers
with the benefits that BEMs provide. A number of new and existing companies
are developing software-based platforms to help customers squeeze
cost-reducing energy efficiency and operational benefits out of their building
portfolios. According to a new report from Navigant Research, worldwide
revenue for BEMSs will reach $5.6 billion annually by 2020, more than doubling
from the 2013 level.

“Building energy management systems represent one of the fastest-growing and
most promising waves of innovation ever to occur in the building industry,”
says Eric Bloom, senior research analyst with Navigant Research. “Among end
users, awareness is growing that BEMSs can help companies not only reduce
their energy consumption, but also improve the operational performance of
facilities and gain insight into occupancy trends in their buildings

While many BEMS vendors have developed platforms with commercial and
government customers in mind, the utility sector is playing an increasingly
important role in the BEMS market, according to the report. Utilities face a
growing number of regulations, such as energy efficiency resource standards in
the United States, that require them to play a proactive role in reducing the
energy consumption of their customer base. A BEMS deployed by a utility to its
customers provides energy efficiency gains that utilities can claim in
compliance with such regulations.

The report, “Building Energy Management Systems”, examines the global market
for BEMSs, including hardware, software, and service components. The report
details the current state of the market, and provides insight into the future
direction of the technology based on emerging capabilities, technical
feasibility, and consumer demand. Forecasts for the global BEMS market, broken
down by customer segment, product area, and region, extend through 2020, and
key industry players are profiled in depth. An Executive Summary of the report
is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.
