Upbeat outlook for low-carbon home tech in the next five years, LCP Delta poll reveals

Summary

High expectations regarding residential green technologies amongst energy experts, according to an LCP Delta webinar poll.

During a recent LCP Delta webinar poll, 35% of respondents said that they expect 40-60% of low-carbon home technologies to be bundled with energy tariffs and other technologies within the next five years. This marks a substantial shift from current routes to market where most products are sold on a standalone basis.

The webinar was focused on residential green technologies such as heat pumps, EVs, and solar PV and the role of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in energy transition.

Additional poll results highlighted varied expectations:

  • 17% foresee the proportion being below 20%
  • 22% expect a range between 60% to 80%

 

This demonstrates the variety of views in the market about business models for low carbon home technologies, at a time when the take up of these technologies is set to accelerate.

The LCP Delta team projects that by 2030, 130 million residential renewable technologies will be in use across core European markets. However, to get there, OEMs and energy suppliers have to play a pivotal role in meeting the anticipated demand and innovating their current traditional route to market of selling standalone products directly to customers.

LCP Delta advises manufacturers to make considered choices in their strategy. These include:

  • Best in class connected: high-quality, low-cost products that can integrate with third-party optimisers.
  • Whole house solutions: full-suite of home renewable tech with seamless integration
  • Future energy manager: offer bundled tech and tariffs direct to customers.

 

Andrew Conway, Senior Consultant at LCP Delta said: “It’s not enough to simply have high expectations for low carbon technologies. With various options available for consumers to begin their net zero journey, players in the energy market need to innovate and offer consumers the best possible packages while also simplifying the process for them.”
