Connected Home IoT Energy Roadmap


There is a renewed interested in the connected home energy sector which is driven not only by the dramatic increase in the Internet of Things, but also by the large projected increases in home energy costs throughout North America. This research would address the many challenges and opportunities surrounding the need for more energy efficient homes. This research will utilize both qualitative (in-depth interviews) and quantitative (consumer or industry questionnaires) research to provide actionable data relevant to: business opportunities, technical barriers and opportunities, future market direction, issues, case studies and industry recommendations.

The purpose of this research is to create a Connected Home IoT Energy Roadmap. The roadmap will provide a comprehensive examination of all the major aspects of energy in the smart home, including: state of the market, key industry players, business opportunities, technical barriers and opportunities, future market direction, issues, case studies and industry recommendations, etc. 

Topics that might be covered in this research include, but are not limited to, the following:

Sustainability and renewables
Battery storage and bi-directional power systems
Electric Vehicles
Role of IoT devices
Zero Net Energy Homes
Micro and nano-grids
Energy efficient technologies and solutions
The role of utilities and energy pricing
Energy integration
Government mandates, rebates, incentives and energy policies
Energy management systems
Energy management device and services market analysis
Smart grid and alternative sources of energy
Demand response
Smart metering and sub-metering
Retrofit vs new construction
Energy Roadmap for the Connected Home: RFP – November 15, 2016
Energy use scheduling
Platforms (Nest, HomeKit, etc.)
Return on investment (ROI) of energy solutions
The new role of solar energy generation
Data ownership and privacy
Real-time energy usage monitoring and control
Barriers towards adoption
Business analysis and value proposition for each stakeholder group
