A new Leaderboard Report from Navigant Research examines the strategy and execution of 10 residential energy as a service (EaaS) platform providers, with Lumenaza and GreenCom Networks ranked as the leading market players.
Residential EaaS software platforms, also known as utilities in a box, are an evolution of home energy management systems (HEMSs), residential microgrids, and customer engagement solutions. These platforms range from simple local energy optimization systems to grid-interactive solutions orchestrated by an aggregator to provide new types of services to consumers and the grid. Click to tweet: According to a new Leaderboard report from @NavigantRSRCH, Lumenaza and GreenCom Networks are the leading providers of residential EaaS platforms.
“Incumbent IT/OT vendors, new entrants, and startups have each approached product development from different perspectives, creating a diverse landscape of vendors,” says Roberto Rodriguez Labastida, senior research analyst at Navigant Research. “Lumenaza and GreenCom Networks, however, have differentiated themselves from the competition through exceptional product performance, strong vendor partnerships, and a sustainable business model.”
According to the report, although consumers enjoy the benefits of electricity almost continuously, its ubiquity has distanced customers from the day-to-day issues the industry faces. New residential energy and non-energy solutions, including residential EaaS platforms, are helping to address the broader needs to decarbonize the power sector, capitalize on the move toward decentralized renewables, and maintain the ongoing electrification of transport.
