Energy IT Forecast 2Q22

Utilities face two major changes—one is the shift toward digital capabilities and the other is the spread of distributed energy resources (DER). Over the past few decades, smart metering, enabled by digital capabilities, has led to the expansion of low-cost sensing and measurement devices throughout the transmission and distribution space. However, utilities are not able to amalgamate and process the data they obtain from these sensing and measurement devices, without effective energy OT systems.

With DER and renewable energy, more advanced energy OT systems—especially advanced distribution management systems and DER management systems—are needed to enable more dynamic, flexible, and decentralized grids. Incorporating DER and renewable energy sources with well equipped, reliable management systems will increase the grid’s overall stability.

This first edition of the Guidehouse Insights Energy IT Forecast Database draws upon the global grid infrastructure and DER databases to report on technology application and optimization systems across grid and non-grid-edge solutions. The grid technologies covered include meters, smart meters, networked and non-networked substations, and feeder line miles at the regional, country, and utility levels. The grid-edge technologies include forecasts developed by combining ground-up data on adoption for base year assumptions with known plans for upcoming adoption and patterns in DER adoption forecasts informing future growth assumptions.
