2015 Technology Convergence Scenarios

Future Utility Market: Technology Trends, Global, 2015–2020

The following show the expected time the respective technologies contribute to Future Utility on a large scale.

Waste-to-Energy: Captured and upgraded biogas from landfills and anaerobic digesters is piped to the community’s natural gas distribution infrastructure to provide natural gas heating for homes.

Advanced lithium batteries store energy from renewable sources generated within the microgrid, to be distributed later as needed.

Predictive analytics enables energy transmission data within a microgrid to be interpreted to predict future trends and probabilities of energy usage patterns.

Context-aware computing will enable energy usage to be contextualized to the microgrid from analysis of energy data traffic.

Collectively, these technologies will enable a smart microgrid that can replace the conventional utility supply grid.
