Microgrid Market Analysis

The global microgrid market is predicted to register a healthy growth at a notable 12.10% CAGR over the estimated years (2018-2023). A microgrid is a smaller grid which can operate in conjunction with the utility’s macro-grid or autonomously. Rather than serving the whole city, microgrids support single users, areas which cover large universities and areas having a few houses. Microgrids operate and also comprise of similar mechanics as that of the main power grid- controls, distribution, and power generation. It makes heavy usage of renewables namely wind turbines and photovoltaics for generating energy for use in a specific development or building. Microgrids cater numerous verticals including government and utilities, healthcare, military, industrial, educational institutes and others (telecom infrastructure, data centers, and electric vehicles. It is highly favored over traditional grid structures owing to its key benefits namely improvement of reliability of supply, reduced environmental impact, minimization of complete energy consumption, improved energy efficiency and network operational benefits such as security of supply, voltage control, congestion relief, loss reduction and most affordable electricity infrastructure replacement.

Various factors are pushing the growth of the Microgrid Market Analysis. These factors in accordance to the Market Research Future (MRFR) report include burgeoning need for secure and reliable power supply, population growth, widespread industrialization, government initiatives to decrease carbon footprint, advantages of clean and cheap energy storage and convergence of IoT to enhance microgrid connectivity. On the contrary, soaring installation as well as maintenance cost, lack of knowledge regarding methods to secure license right to connect multisite microgrids, and land acquisition and also land registration techniques creating complication for installation of solar PV plants in rural areas are factors that may hamper microgrid market growth over the estimated years.
