Active Network Management Market

Active Network Management Market by Component, End Users & Region | Forecast 2023 to 2033

Market Insights on Active Network Management covering sales outlook, demand forecast and up-to-date key trends

Active Network Management Market Outlook (2023 to 2033)

The global market for active network management is projected to reach US$ 942.43 million in 2023, according to Future Market Insights. During the forecast period ranging from 2023 to 2033, a CAGR of 20.3% is projected for the market. By the end of the said period of assessment, FMI predicted active network management would be valued at US$ 5,985 million by 2033.

A growing share of distributed and renewable energy sources are being integrated into electrical distribution systems, which has made Active Network Management (ANM) an invaluable tool for operators of distribution systems to manage their systems efficiently and cost-effectively without having to depend primarily on network reinforcement. ANM strategies are designed to control the amount of power injected into and taken out of the grid at any given point in time.

Net zero electricity use will be achieved through the adoption of new innovative technologies. Using Active Network Management (ANM) systems and flexible connection agreements, this technology has allowed distribution constraints to be better managed.

  • Reduced network reinforcement costs by hundreds of millions of pounds for connected customers.
  • Designed to speed up connection times.
  • With the use of automated systems, DNOs will be able to provide connectivity to a greater number of distribution customers.
  • Connecting to the network via ANM can be cheaper and faster, which is one of its major benefits to the market.
  • Several DNOs have already reported saving millions of pounds by avoiding the cost of reinforcement due to ANM.
  • ANM systems may be the only option for customers to connect to the network on occasion.
  • ANMs are considered by several DNOs as a practical method of adding renewable generation without jeopardizing security on their networks.

An innovative project by SHEPD led to the Orkney smart grid, the first smart grid in Britain, developed and deployed through innovation projects resulting in a £500k solution compared to the £30m cost of alternative reinforcement identified in the Orkney ANM scheme in a recent review. It is envisaged that new energy generators will be able to set power limits employing automated controls, thereby preventing too much energy from entering the grid, which would otherwise cause outages and faults in the system.

Anm4L is an EU project that aims at developing and demonstrating new ANM solutions for increasing the scalability and efficiency of electricity distribution systems by integrating distributed generation. Active and reactive power management will be integrated into ANM solutions to prevent overloading and maintain proper voltage levels. Ideally, this would reduce the need to curtail renewable energy, allowing a distributed generation to be even more integrated into existing networks. In another instance, Swedish and Hungary distribution grids were used to demonstrate the toolbox, methods, and business models for ANM. The project also weighs scalability and replicability requirements to apply these ANM solutions throughout the EU.

ANM was implemented at the Dunbar Grid Supply Point (GSP) between 2012 and 2016 by SP Energy networks and partners to connect four new projects with a total of 50MW to an export-constrained grid, as well as to connect a 48MW windfarm to a flexible link, replacing the previous inter-trip connection.

Using Active Network Management has proven to be an incredibly effective way of increasing the amount of renewable energy generated without requiring a multi-billion-pound investment from businesses. Smart cities are adopting smart energy distribution strategies due to an increase in projects aiming to make cities smarter. Over 2.5 billion urban residents are projected to live in cities by 2050.

For instance, Urbanova has built a smart city proving ground in Spokane, Washington to develop the future of cities. The Urbanova project aims to improve urban life by applying robust, scalable, replicable, and sustainable technologies. One of the pilot projects aims to monitor air quality through connected and smart streetlights, a pilot program for a Shared Energy Economy, and a study of people's lives using their voices to analyze. Urbanova's Smart City Pilot relies on the Active Network as a platform for connecting a range of devices to a smart city and running smart city applications.
