Catch up on our recent webinar, There is no slowing down for the European connected home market.

The COVID-19 crisis has barely impacted the acceleration of the connected home market, which keeps growing at a serious pace across Europe. There is now a complete portfolio of connected climate controls available in the market and all kinds of companies are embracing the digitalisation of controls.

The webinar includes:

  • A product by product overview, focusing on energy and climate controls
  • A zoom in on some of the most interesting European countries and the evolution of the market
  • The latest innovations in terms of products and services

A new report from Delta-EE's Heating Business Service analyses the results of an online survey with 1,000 homeowners where we tested the appeal of buying heating on subscription. From this we estimate the potential market size and value for heating subscription contracts in France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

Hybrid heat pumps have been an available technology option for decarbonising heating for several years. They can offer several benefits over other heating technologies, including being lower-carbon and more efficient than boilers, and providing solutions to some of the key challenges associated with fully electric heat pumps (especially in retrofit). But how many are currently being sold? Which markets and which housing segments are they gaining traction in, today? And how long might the ‘window of opportunity’ remain open for hybrids?

The latest report from Delta-EE's Electrification of Heat and Gas Heating Services presents our answers to these key questions.

Decarbonising heat in existing buildings has long been a challenge, but opportunities are finally emerging. The heating transition is accelerating, and market trends are converging right now to create strong foundations for success – if market players are ready to capitalise.

Imagine it's the year 2030, and the gas boiler that's been keeping you warm from the basement of your home in Bavaria, (or from your larder in Lombardy, or attic in Amsterdam) breaks down for good. Do you replace it with an electric heat pump? Or, do you convert to hydrogen and swap the old boiler out for a new hydrogen-burning model? A commodity market in green (renewable) hydrogen has appeared since you last needed the services of a heating installer, so it is now a real possibility. If you were interested in this option, you could even consider a hydrogen-powered fuel cell, gas heat pump, or hybrid heat pump instead. The most important factor for you is a system that gives the lowest possible heating costs.

In Delta-EE’s latest subscriber report, the Gas Heating Service has analysed what the relative end-user heating costs could be for all of these technology options, across Europe's five largest gas heating markets – that is a total market opportunity of over 60 million dwellings. The results are very intriguing.

If you are interested to learn more about the work Delta-EE is doing on the subject of hydrogen-based heating don't spend the next 10 years deliberating it, check out our service webpage or get in touch directly.

We have released our Connected Homes; State of the Market 2020 report revealing over 7.5 million homes across Europe now have connected home energy devices with 13% growth expected this year, despite COVID-19.

Connected home energy refers to a broad spectrum of items, including connected climate controls, remote heating diagnostics, home energy management and home automation products such as smart lighting. Smart thermostats remained the product where Europeans spent the most money, accounting for €371million of spending in 2019, compared to connected lighting, in second place, at €279million according to the report.
