Additionally, it is anticipated that the market will increase during the projected period due to the increasing acceptance of advanced technologies for implementing digital twin applications. By adding an information layer to smart grids, AI makes it possible for utilities and consumers to communicate with each other via electrical networks. In addition, this layer enables interaction between the various grid parts so they can better react to sudden changes in energy demand or emergencies.

Installing smart meters & sensors, which enable data collecting, storage, analysis, and the development of a digital twin, establishes this information layer. Power system and utility operators should be able to examine the sizable amount and varied structure of the datasets produced by digital twins with the aid of virtual reality, AI, IoT, machine learning, and other emerging technologies.

This analysis can be utilized for several tasks, such as seamless problem detection in meters, anticipatory maintenance requirements, quality monitoring of sustainable energy, and forecasting for renewable energy. Additionally, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) can automatically provide insights to power system operators and enhance business outcomes.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 outbreak has dealt a fatal blow to the world economy & the energy industry, upsetting supply networks and stifling demand. The power industry faced several difficulties, including a smaller and more distant workforce, declining commercial energy demand, rising customer calls, and using digital or self-serve channels amid lockdowns. Utility companies and grid operators were compelled by these difficulties to speed up their operations' automation, digitalization, and decentralization. The shift in working habits brought on by COVID-19-related limitations has accelerated utilities' and grid operators' efforts to convert into digital businesses. The market has so greatly profited from COVID-19's widespread use.

Market Growth Factors

Incorporation of variable renewable energy and decentralization of DER using digital twin

In order to monitor, regulate, automate, and run their power networks, utilities, and grid operators need quicker and more effective solutions, such as electrical digital twins. The challenges posed by grid modernization programs, particularly DER integration, can be addressed by electrical digital twins. These tools aid in planning, analyzing, and developing the grid modernization process as well as assessing the impact of DER. As a result, utilities are able to simplify the DER interconnection procedure, which enhances customer response times, makes cost-effective investments possible, and boosts operational effectiveness. In light of this, the electric digital twin market is estimated to witness significant growth during the projection period.

Advent of energy 4.0 supporting growth

Electric utilities globally are adopting advanced technologies such as machine learning, AI, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and cloud computing to enhance their predictive & prescriptive maintenance, smart metering, asset performance monitoring & management, automation of distributed energy resources (DER), and analysis of fluctuations in decentralized renewable generation systems. Implementing an electrical digital twin empowers utility companies to proactively anticipate, evaluate, and optimize various transmission, power generation, and distribution models, as well as renewable energy integration scenarios.

Market Restraining Factors

Complexity in systems and access to accurate models

A digital twin should be supplied with information on equipment failure modes to predict failures. Maintaining the digital duplicate becomes more challenging when there are adjustments to the equipment, assets, or operating status. Any change to the physical system would necessitate equivalent adjustments to its digital model & algorithms. Since modeling some scenarios, such as the installation of new parts at the machine level or operational level modifications, may not be accurate, the likelihood of errors may increase as complexity levels rise. These issues limit many power industry players' widespread use of electrical digital twins.

Type Outlook

By type, the electrical digital twin market is segmented into product digital twin, process digital twin and system digital twin. The system digital twin segment registered the maximum revenue share in the electrical digital twin market in 2022. The necessity for network-level optimization is the reason behind this. A group of goods and procedures that operate together to carry out system- or network-wide tasks make up the system digital twin. Substations, wind farms, power plants, and distributed energy resources are a few examples of systems or networks that can be stimulated using this technique.

Application Outlook

Based on application, the electrical digital twin market is fragmented into asset performance management, and business & operations optimization. Businesses use digital twins to evaluate the performance of their physical assets under circumstances or to monitor the performance of assets in real time. Using data from sensors attached to actual assets enables the creation of reliable failure models. The vast array of commercial digital twin software offerings developed by numerous companies is estimated to increasingly support market growth in this segment.

End User Outlook

On the basis of end user, the electrical digital twin market is divided into utilities and grid infrastructure operators. In 2022, the utilities segment held the highest revenue share in the electrical digital twin market. The increasing use of renewable energy sources and cutting-edge digital technologies is responsible for the segment's expansion. To establish strong long-term asset management and business strategies and minimize operational costs, several utilities have invested in installing electrical digital twins. These twins can analyze and visualize data in real-time.
