Navigant Research Leaderboard: Residential Demand Response

Assessment of Strategy and Execution for 15 Residential DR Vendors

As the global residential demand response (RDR) market has heated up in recent years, leading companies have invested heavily to develop their capabilities and strategy. A number of companies focused on other aspects of the smart grid arena are now beginning to tackle the DR space. There are also many startup companies with new hardware and software offerings that take advantage of the plethora of available energy data and communication options for devices and customer messaging. Some of the incumbent RDR vendors are finding that they need to partner with these new players to keep pace with the changing marketplace.

The RDR industry is still maturing relative to the energy industry in general. Several forces are encouraging the development of RDR, including technology enhancements and customer engagement strategies. Yet, barriers to RDR adoption also exist, such as policy challenges and cost-effectiveness issues. The companies active in this market are diverse, ranging from full-scale utility operational system providers to pure-play RDR vendors. This report combines both software and hardware offerings, as well as technology providers and program implementation services, which are all different segments that require diverse skill sets. Few companies attempt to serve all sides, thereby offering a complete solution.

This Navigant Research Leaderboard evaluates the Strategy and Execution of 15 vendors active in the global market for RDR. These players are rated on 10 criteria: vision; go-to market strategy; partners; technology; geographic reach; sales, marketing, and distribution; product performance; product portfolio; pricing; and staying power. Using Navigant Research’s proprietary Leaderboard methodology, vendors are profiled, rated, and ranked with the goal of providing an objective assessment of their relative strengths and weaknesses in the global RDR market.
