This IDC Energy Insights report provides readers with an overview of the market challenges and opportunities in developing Smart Buildings that effectively communicate and interact with the Smart Grid. The report outlines the drivers, benefits, and challenges associated with investing in Smart technologies on both sides of the grid and then outlines the kind of "next practices" that can help bring convergence in development and accelerate the adoption of technology infrastructure necessary for collaboration between buildings and the grid.
"It is clear the development of Smart Buildings and the Smart Grid is happening through parallel but distinct processes. Interconnected and interoperable Smart Buildings and Smart Grids represent significant value in terms of economics, reliability, and efficiency. Improving awareness of the value of smart technologies on both sides of the meter is essential for aligning the benefits of investment to begin a convergence in the adoption of infrastructure necessary to make the connected paradigm a reality." — Casey Talon, research analyst, Distributed Energy Strategies
