Guidehouse Insights Estimates Global Market for Complex Rate Analytics Will Grow to $5.2 Billion by 2032

Market driven by adoption of time-of-use and other non-traditional rate structures

BOULDER, Colo., May 14, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — A new report from Guidehouse Insights explores the global market for complex rate analytics, analyzing billing and customer information systems (CISs), customer relationship management (CRM) systems, and 10 categories of energy analytics applications.

Time-varying pricing is becoming more widespread and a powerful driver due to the growing perception that it is a best practice. According to a new report from Guidehouse Insights, the global market for complex rate analytics is projected to grow from an estimated $2.3 billion in 2023 to $5.2 billion in 2032, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.6%.

“Multiple countries, including the US, are seeing a simultaneous shift toward more complex rate structures that effectively leverage the benefits of advanced metering infrastructure to deliver multi-pronged value streams for utilities and customers alike,” says Michael Kelly, principal research analyst with Guidehouse Insights. “From peak demand management and distributed energy resource optimization to energy affordability and customer satisfaction, new and advanced rate structures offer a logical mechanism for utilities to address the challenges of today and tomorrow.”

While established customer care providers have enhanced their abilities to bill, model, and manage basic time-of-use (TOU) and net metering rate structures, significant gaps remain in legacy systems’ ability to support complex rate design, shadow billing, automated billing, and hyper-personalized rate coaching and education. Complex rate engines and advanced disaggregation methods employed for TOU recommendations, DER program enrollment, and billing support offer a glimpse into new software capabilities that aim to scale this emerging field of energy analytics, according to the report.

The report, Complex Rate Analytics, examines the global marketplace for energy information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) software and services. It outlines the drivers and barriers behind the growing market for energy IT, OT, and data analytics solutions for five global markets: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. It provides details on market sizing from 2023 through 2032, segmented by global region and technology segment. An executive summary of the report is available for free download on the Guidehouse Insights website.
