Smart Grid Data and Information Management

Pikes Research report outlines the importance Data Management ‘with the increasing use of building automation and control systems, there has been an explosion in the amount of data that is available on the operational, and energy performance of commercial buildings. Although this data can pose challenges for building owners, building managers, and vendors, it has also provided significant opportunities. New companies, new technologies, unique business models, and a variety of market access methods are changing the face of the BEMS market. Small but sophisticated startups are challenging established methods of analyzing building energy performance, and challenging the large established players as well. The established and well known players are not sitting still, however, and are bringing innovation to the way they provide end to end products and services to their clients across the enterprise. Rapid energy modelling, app stores and app labs, energy kiosks, cloud computing, big data, online communities, and continuous optimization are now required in the vocabulary of market participants.’
