Introduction

The European energy efficiency market is driven by increasing environmental awareness, rising energy prices, and the introduction of legislative and regulatory environmental measures to combat climate change and improve energy security. Multiple market opportunities are arising for utilities and other companies operating across the energy value chain in the residential sector.

Features and benefits
  • An assessment of the - mostly legislative and regulatory - drivers of energy efficiency including consumer attitudes
  • An estimate of the potential residential energy efficiency market value for the EU 27 countries including annual investment projections.
  • An evaluation of the energy efficiency products and services offered online by EU utilities as well as illustrative examples of innovative practices
  • An analysis of the different business strategies employed by EU utilities to enter the energy efficiency market
  • A discussion of the main barriers to growth of the energy efficiency market and key recommendations for utilities preparing their entrance strategy
Highlights

Datamonitor believes that residential energy efficiency solutions in Europe will peak at £11bn per year in 2015. Its forecast model also predicts that the biggest potential for growth on a percentage basis is in ground source and air source heating pumps, followed by solar technology applications.

Utilities' energy efficiency offerings vary between European countries depending on the legislative framework and other country-specific factors. Analysis of utilities' online energy efficiency offerings reveals that 89% of utilities focus on providing their customers with free advice on how to save energy in their households.

Despite a number of market and economic barriers hampering more rapid growth in many countries and the energy efficiency sector at large, this issue will strongly affect the energy industry in the coming years. Utilties are advised to start engaging with the topic and preparing their strategies to respond to both the opportunities and challenges.
