New research from Berg Insight of Gothenburg, in Sweden, shows that the number of homes in North American and Europe now equipped with smart thermostats is rising rapidly. Overall the sector grew by 81 per cent over the course of 2015 with uptake in North America increasing by 78 per cent and in Europe by 90 per cent year-on-year.They are impressive figures but it has to be a said that they begin from a very, very low user base. The reality is that at the moment North America has a mere 4.5 million smart thermostats deployed while Europe has just 1.4 million. All in all some 5.8 million smart thermostats are in use and that’s a miniscule number given the size of the two huge markets.Nonetheless, the smart home market is on the move and Berg Insight’s forecast is that that the number of homes in Europe and North America with smart thermostats will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 54.5 per cent over the next five years to reach an installed base of 51.1 million by 2020.Unsurprisingly Berg expects North America to remain the biggest market and has calculated that 32.2 million homes there will have smart thermostats by 2020 while Europe will have 18.9 million of them.

The recent years have seen the demand for smart microgrids surge to unprecedented levels. This spike in demand is attributable to the growing share of renewable energy in the global energy matrix. According to a latest research report by Transparency Market Research, the global smart microgrid market is firmly on the course to steady growth owing to the aforementioned factors. North America stands as the largest market in the world for smart microgrids. Within North America, it is the United States that has been at the forefront of the smart microgrid market thanks to several institutes such as universities, hospitals, and data centers installing smart microgrids. Rural electrification programs in countries such as China, India and Malaysia will lead to a spike in the demand for smart microgrid installations in these regional markets, the report predicts.
