Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard: Energy as a Service

Assessment of Strategy and Execution for 17 EaaS Vendors

Customers are attracted to energy as a service (EaaS) because it allows them to address sustainability, resiliency, and deferred maintenance while upgrading facilities with OPEX-only payments and immediate ROI. Outsourcing all or parts of energy management to a provider skilled in long-term performance contracts and risk transfer is increasingly compelling because of the rising complexity of available distributed energy technologies and the challenge of meeting long-term greenhouse gas emission reduction targets. Commercial, industrial, and public sector customers are starting to adopt and explore EaaS solutions at scale.

In the past year, players in the market have made significant strides in developing and executing EaaS solutions, expanding into new customer verticals, and forming new partnerships.
