Building Automation Systems will Drive the Indoor EH Market

Indoor energy harvesting (EH) faces commercialization challenges as new EH technologies emerge to address solutions for potential applications inside buildings. The building automation systems (BAS) market is an opportunity growth area for the indoor EH market. End users in North America, such as education and government buildings, and in end users in Europe, such as hotels, restaurants, sports facilities, public buildings, wholesale, and retail trade buildings, will offer revenue opportunities for indoor EH. The key benefits of indoor EH are increased energy efficiency, cost benefits, and comfort. Indoor EH finds its potential applications in heating, ventilation, and air condition; lighting, shading, and occupancy detection.

Key Findings

• Indoor energy sources such as human movement, vibration, solar, thermal, and radio frequency can be transformed into electrical energy. This transformation process is energy harvesting (EH).
• Harvested electrical energy is used to power sensors, switches, actuators, controllers, and gateways of building management systems (BMS) for applications such as lighting; heating ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC); shading and blinds; and occupancy detection.
• End users are commonly classified as commercial, industrial, and residential buildings, while the penetration of EH devices in residential buildings is lower when compared to commercial buildings.
• The energy efficient wireless, batteryless nature of EH networks allows for easy and quick installation of building automation systems (BAS) in both new buildings and refurbishment projects.
• In Japan, the EH consortium and the launch of EnOcean technology could open avenues for EH in buildings.
• Companies continue to innovate EH devices to emerge with commercially viable products.
• Production of microelectromechanical devices for EH ability and Internet of Things (IoT) with EH are expected to be key trends in the building technologies industry.
• The forecast for building level controllers shipment for North America and Europe indicates a wide open opportunity for EH devices in these regions.
• The maximum opportunity for penetration of EH devices will be in education buildings in North America and public buildings in Europe.
• By 2016, indoor light EH will lead the EH market in terms of market share.

Key CEO 360 Degree Perspectives on EH Solutions

1. EH and IoT will be key technological trends in the future of building technologies.
2. The potential of thermal EH will be exploited to a vast extent by market participants in the long term.
3. Smart and intelligent homes will be the key target vertical market by companies as their potential remains untapped.
4. Energy efficiency, faster installations, and maintenance-free solutions are the main customer anticipations from EH.
5. Commercially viable products and strategic positioning in the public are the best practices followed by companies.

Three Big Predictions

1. Indoor mechanical EH and solar EH shared the EH market in buildings equally; however, from 2013 onwards, thermal EH will start to gain market share and increase consistently in the coming years.
2. In 2011, the global EH devices market was worth approximately $Xmillion and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of X% from 2011 to 2016 to reach $X billion in 2016, mostly because of BAS.
3. Green and zero energy buildings will need EH BAS. Deployment of wireless BAS in the cloud with Internet protocol version X (IPv6) will enable IoT to configure, monitor, and control devices remotely at various levels of BMS.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
