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.

Five years ago development was seen as a dead-end career, now it’s anything but – with an explosion in mobile and IoT initiatives increasing the demand for skilled engineers. But apart from having a ready supply of great coders, what constitutes true ‘DevOps Royalty’? It’ll be the ability to craft resilient architectures, supportability, security everywhere across the software lifecycle. In his keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Jeffrey Scheaffer, GM and SVP, Continuous Delivery Busine...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
