Global Market for Microgrid is Anticipated to grow at a Significant Pace i.e., USD 46.2 Billion during the Forecast Period 2023-2030

Published Date: Mar, 2022

The global microgrid market is anticipated to grow at a rapid pace i.e. 11.6% CAGR during the forecast period owing to rising global demand for clean energy generation and provides a self-sufficient source of power generation during crisis or grid disconnection. Microgrids can be utilised as a backup or supplemental power source for major grids in order to meet end customers' rising electricity demands. The increased need for proper electrification in the emerging economies, rising dissemination of distributed energy resources (DER’s) owing to robust commercial and industrial development, sectors like military & research needs a secure network along with 24*7 power supply which can be offered by microgrids owing to its functioning under Island mode and independent of external power and transmissions, thus foster the industry landscape. Also, cut in transmission losses, robust usage of software among several end-user verticals like commercial, government, industrial, and healthcare so as to manage and control distributed energy resources, integrates weather, and load forecasting will bolster the growth of the market.

The microgrid market refers to the industry involved in the development, deployment, and operation of microgrid systems. A microgrid is a localized electrical system that can operate independently or in conjunction with the main power grid. It consists of distributed energy resources (DERs), such as renewable energy sources, energy storage systems, and controllable loads, integrated with advanced control and management systems.

Here are key aspects of the microgrid market:

Components of a Microgrid: A microgrid typically includes various components, including power generation sources (solar, wind, hydro, diesel generators, etc.), energy storage systems (batteries, flywheels, etc.), power conversion systems, distribution infrastructure, control systems, and monitoring and management software.

Grid Independence and Resiliency: Microgrids offer the ability to operate independently from the main grid, or they can be connected and operated in a grid-connected mode. They provide localized power generation and distribution, which improves energy resiliency, reliability, and the ability to withstand and recover from grid disruptions or outages.

Renewable Energy Integration: Microgrids often incorporate renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind power, to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and decrease greenhouse gas emissions. The integration of renewable energy in microgrids helps achieve energy sustainability and contributes to the transition to a cleaner energy future.

Energy Management and Control Systems: Microgrids rely on advanced control and management systems to optimize energy generation, storage, and distribution. These systems use sophisticated algorithms and real-time data to balance supply and demand, manage energy flows, prioritize critical loads, and ensure system stability and efficiency.

Islanding and Grid Support: Microgrids can operate in islanding mode, where they disconnect from the main grid during grid failures or emergencies. They can provide power to critical facilities, such as hospitals, military bases, and remote communities, ensuring continuous operation. Additionally, microgrids can provide grid support services, such as frequency regulation, voltage control, and peak shaving, to improve the overall stability and reliability of the main grid.

Industrial and Commercial Applications: Microgrids find applications in various sectors, including commercial buildings, industrial complexes, campuses, military installations, remote and off-grid communities, and rural electrification projects. They offer benefits such as cost savings, energy independence, load management, and the integration of renewable energy sources.

Policy and Market Drivers: The growth of the microgrid market is driven by factors such as increasing energy demand, grid reliability concerns, the need for clean and resilient energy solutions, government policies promoting renewable energy and energy efficiency, and the declining costs of renewable energy technologies and energy storage.

In October 2021, Eaton, a power management company, and Enel X, the Enel Group's advanced energy services business line, announced that they will collaborate on a second microgrid project in Puerto Rico. The projects will lower demand for regional energy infrastructure, allow Eaton to use more renewable energy in production, and improve Eaton's energy resilience.

The COVID-19 outbreak has substantially impacted the growth of the global microgrid market due to the lack of skilled professional in operating the technology and temporary shutdown of manufacturing unite worldwide.
