Review and analysis of market conditions
This deliverable provides an insight on the potential market for the vBMS platform being currently designed, developed and tested in the context of the project activities.
It provides an overview of the two key broad markets in which the vBMS is expected to be offered and in which it is foreseen to be able to capture a relevant share, the “standard” BMS and Smart Buildings markets. It has been observed that both are projected to grow significantly in the coming years, especially in Europe, following rising energy prices and regulatory frameworks evolutions.
Typical BMS-related cost, lifespan, payback period and other information have been investigated and reported providing specific considerations on small and medium-sized buildings. In addition, a simplified simulation of the financials associated with a BMS and iBECOME vBMS investments has been carried out based on the features of the four pilot buildings involved in the project.
The document also includes vBMS key services descriptions together with considerations on why their features and functionalities are expected to make them appealing solutions to customers.
Key services addressed are:
- Continuous Commissioning
- Building Optimized Renovation
- Demand Response
- Third Parties’Services(Commuting Optimization and Healthcare Management)
This deliverable presents a section devoted to already existing vBMS platform competitive products and solutions. It has been developed to provide a non-exhaustive but representative list of products presenting functions somehow comparable to those developed within the iBECOME project and to capture their key features which might guide further development activities and the subsequent suitable positioning of the vBMS platform in the market. It has been observed, for example, that most solutions are offered through a SaaS business model and the integration of energy optimization and comfort optimization functions are common to many products offering.
