Prosumerism in the Energy Sector: Digital Technologies Transforming Inspection Landscape -

September 30, 2021 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 30, 2021--

The “Technology Advancements Enabling Prosumerism in Energy Sector” report has been added to’s offering.

Smart grid modernizations have led to the development of remunerative programs that encourage consumers to optimize their energy consumption in response to penalties, pricing signals, or curtailment requests. The potential flexibility being infused by the programs have rendered consumers’ energy load and onsite generation capabilities to be considered as a critical factors and resource for grid balancing.


Smart grids have infused a paradigm shift toward active energy distribution and have significantly transformed the role of a consumer alongside communities, enabling “passive” users to act as “active” participants - both as consumers and producers. The smartest and viable part of the grid, however, is not the technological integration, but rather the human tendencies: the “prosumer” or “prosumerism.”

A prosumer is a consecutive power producer and consumer. Consumers transform into potential prosumers through the integration of an energy generation unit including a solar panel within their premises. Increasing number of institutions, households, and businesses setting up renewable energy systems has led to the structuring of a socio-technical distribution system.

The research study highlights the key characteristics of prosumers in terms of consumer needs, goals, preferences, alongside the technical demands of a durable and sustainable power supply mechanism.

The study covers the following:

  • Importance of Prosumerism as a concept in today’s smart grid
  • Key Roles and Features of Smart Grid Components Within Prosumerism
  • Digital technologies transforming inspection landscape
  • Companies to Action: Innovations and key stakeholders
  • Patent landscape
