Key Market Trends

Energy Sector Accounts for the Largest Market Share

  • Energy efficiency is increasingly becoming the primary focus of both private enterprises and government authorities across the globe. The increasing economic activities have led to high energy consumption rates and pushed global electricity grids to their limits.
  • Energy consumption is expected to increase over the coming years; according to the United States Energy Information Administration, the worldwide energy consumption is anticipated to grow by around 50% during 2018-2050, with the Asian region being the major consumer of energy over the years.
  • Additionally, major economies have already formed regulations to enhance their energy efficiency, and other countries are following suit. For example, the Energy Efficiency Directive established measures to help the EU reach a 20% energy efficiency target by 2020, which was then amended in 2018 with an energy efficiency target for 2030 for at least 32.5%. Such developments in the regions are forcing businesses to adopt energy efficiency solutions.
  • According to the Department of Energy data, buildings account for 40% of US energy use and waste 30% of the energy they consume. Altogether, that is a massive amount of the annual energy used and destroyed. Excess carbon is produced in the North American region, reaching over USD 100 billion in operational costs per year.
  • Further, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a global IT service, consulting, and business solutions organization, has launched TCS Clever Energy, enterprise-level energy and emission management system. It helped commercial and industrial organizations be more sustainable, ensure energy and cost efficiency, decrease carbon emissions, and reach their carbon neutral goals in December 2020.
Carbon Management Software Market Key Trends

North America Accounts For Largest Market Share

  • The carbon management system market in the region remains a significant market as commercial, residential, and industrial consumers continue to drive adoption to realize energy savings. The US is currently ranked as the second-largest consumer of electricity after China.
  • Further, the Carbon management program launch in North America is a decisive step in establishing Airport Carbon Accreditation as the global standard for carbon management at airports. The launch ceremony also saw Seattle-Tacoma International Airport become the very first airport in North America to achieve certification within the program.
  • Government initiatives to decrease energy emissions from several old and public buildings are also boosting the market demand. For instance, the US General Services Administration made a contract with IBM Corporation to install efficient and smart building technologies in 50 of the state and federal government’s highest energy-consuming buildings.
  • Further adding to the scenario, a potentially zero-energy district is currently being developed at the National Western Center, a multi-use campus currently under construction in Denver, Colorado, to house the annual National Western Stock Show and other public events focused on food and agriculture. Electricity used to operate the lighting, heat pumps, and other equipment will come from on-site photovoltaics and wind- and solar-generated electricity imported from off-site.
  • In January 2021, Schneider Electric announced its Eco Struxure Microgrid Solution for Small & Medium Buildings for Canada. The all-in-one solution provides easy integration of distributed energy resources (DERs) across facilities – including commercial and industrial buildings, healthcare facilities, and educational institutions – providing organizations with more excellent energy resiliency, reduced energy costs, and a lower carbon footprint.
