The global energy as a service (EaaS) market size was valued at USD 77.56 million in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 85.62 million in 2024 to USD 208.20 million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 11.75% during the forecast period.

To deduct the total energy footprint, commercial and industrial building sector consumers are largely investing in energy efficiency and procurement of energy from more sustainable sources. The increasing adoption of these services has been mainly to reduce energy costs and decrease carbon emissions to maintain the ecological balance. Innovative business models provide new opportunities for customers to finance energy-efficient building technologies and measures. These include pay-for-performance contracts, energy savings performance contracts, power purchase agreements, and on-bill financing.

Energy as a Service (EaaS) includes the sale of technology, energy, analytics, access to the grid, and personalized services. The challenge of carbon emissions poses a severe threat to the environment. Decentral energy distribution has been witnessed with the increasing adoption of renewable sources to generate power. Rapid industrialization in developing countries increases the energy demand and causes the depletion of fossil fuels globally. The growing requirement to reduce the dependency on fossil fuels and minimize the carbon emission from burning them has augmented the demand for renewable energy sources, which, in turn, has projected to continue to drive the EaaS market’s progress during the analyzed timeframe.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has considerably impaired all industries. Most countries have witnessed a huge expansion in the number of affected cases since 2020. The pandemic's outcome led to unrest in economies of various fast-growing developing countries. The EaaS market has been immediately affected by the outbreak of this global pandemic. Various nations across regions have observed a substantial decline in commercial and industrial activities, reducing numerous vertical energy demands. The steep decrease in energy intake has resulted in limitations in adopting new technologies across the globe.

Energy as a Service (EaaS) Market Trends

EaaS Market Will Grow Rapidly Due to Expansion of Distributed Energy Generation (DEG) Technology

As the energy demand rises and concerns about carbon emissions grow, renewable energy sources are becoming more valuable. As renewables become more common, decentralized energy distribution technologies are also becoming popular. The Distributed Energy Generation (DEG) technology uses all the available energy sources to reduce the strain on power production and incorporate new energy sources into a nation's energy production. Deploying distributed systems offers several benefits, including lower carbon emissions, ability to reach remote areas, enhanced power security, reduced peak energy demand, improved system efficiency, and cost savings for both customers and utilities. Similarly, a virtual power plant is a technology that manages multiple systems using advanced software. This technology is more prevalent in North American and European markets.

Growing Demand for Peak Energy and Favorable Regulatory Frameworks to Aid Industry Outlook

Increasing population and efforts to bring electricity to rural areas have led to higher peak energy demand. Under the EaaS model, the responsibility for financing, installing, owning, and maintaining an energy-producing asset shifts from the consumer to the service provider. Supportive government regulations promoting low-carbon technologies have also helped the market grow. Moreover, the rise of large infrastructure projects and increased urbanization have boosted the demand for power from utility companies.

Energy as a Service (EaaS) Market Growth Factors

Increasing Adoption of Renewables Owing to their Environmental and Economic Advantages to Favor Overall Market Growth

The aim to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and increased energy demand are the primary targets of governing bodies in countries across the globe. Following this, the installation of renewable energy sources is set to grow tremendously over the coming decade, which will lead to the expansion of the market. New energy targets launched by various governments to promote the inclination toward sustainable power have positively affected the market size. For instance, Brazil aims to have 42.5% of its primary energy supply to be renewable by the end of 2023. Similarly, according to the carbon brief analysis, the U.K. government aims to have about half of its electricity renewable in 2025. Germany is on its path to accounting for renewables for 65% of its total energy by 2030. China plans to achieve 16% of its energy renewable by 2030. Following the investment and growth in the country, renewable energy is expected to hold a 26% share and surpass the set target.

Increasing Demand for Energy in Various End-user Sectors to Promote Market Growth

Commercial buildings, residential buildings, and industries require a continuous supply of electricity to meet employees' required production and working hours. In the case of mainline failures, the need for backup power systems in data centers has also increased in these sectors, which has driven investments in the market. Automotive vehicles that currently run on fossil fuels are soon expected to be purely dependent on electricity, which will drive the electricity demand. New charging stations and increased production rates will create opportunities for the EaaS market. Similarly, other industries, such as manufacturing, textile, chemical, pharmaceutical, and others, are expected to grow at a healthy rate. The production and working rate from industries, such as the automotive sectors, are expected to expand during the coming years. Further, the construction of new grids and mass storage systems by utilities to utilize the captured energy from renewables also poses an opportunity for the energy as a service market growth.


Heavy Capital Investment for Establishment and Switch to Advanced Grids to Impede Market Growth

Renewable energy sources require a good amount of investment to produce energy. For instance, according to Bloomberg, the renewable energy source collectively drew around USD 2.9 trillion in investments from 2010 to 2019. Solar accounts for only 8% of the global energy generation, and wind accounts for 9%. Therefore, most of the projects are needed to be carried out with support from government firms. Governments also provide only a certain percentage of the total investment, and the rest is dependent on the company itself. The grid upgrading work, which requires the installation of smart equipment at both the customer and utility end, is also costly, which may hamper the EaaS market growth.

Energy as a Service (EaaS) Market Segmentation Analysis

By Service Type Analysis

 Global Energy Supply Services Segment to Dominate the Market Due to Rapid Urbanization

Based on service type, the market is fragmented into energy optimization & efficiency service, operational & maintenance service, and energy supply services. The energy supply service segment will dominate the market with a 41.74% market share in 2021. The segment’s growth is attributed to the rising population, resulting in an increased number of customers in each region. Energy optimization & efficiency-as-a-service is a pay-for-performance, off-balance sheet financing solution that allows customers to implement energy and water efficiency projects with no upfront capital expenditure. Implementation of these services is economical in the long run as the customer makes service payments based on actual energy savings or other equipment performance metrics, resulting in immediate reduced operating expenses. These factors are expected to drive the segment’s growth.
