 Microgrid Market Size to grow by USD 32848.9 million between 2024-2028

According to a research report “ Microgrid Market” by Application (Remote, Institutions and campus, Military, Others) Connectivity (Grid connected, Off-grid connected) Geography (North America, APAC, Europe, South America, Middle East and Africa)- Global Forecast to 2028 published by Technavio, the market size is estimated to grow by USD 32848.9 million, at a CAGR of  15.12% during the forecast period. In the power industry, aging infrastructure, climate change, escalating energy costs, and mass electrification present significant challenges. Developed countries grapple with power outages due to infrastructure decay, while developing regions, particularly Asia and Africa, struggle with low electrification rates. Traditional power grids adhere to a centralized structure, with power generation occurring at large facilities, transmitted through high-voltage lines, and distributed to end-users. Issues in any part of this system can trigger a ripple effect, compromising grid reliability. These challenges necessitate innovative solutions, such as microgrids, which offer resilient, locally-controlled energy systems. Microgrids can mitigate the risks associated with aging infrastructure, climate change, and energy cost volatility, ensuring uninterrupted power supply and improved energy efficiency.

By Application, the Remote segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

Microgrids serve as flexible and autonomous energy systems that can connect to the utility grid while maintaining the ability to operate independently. At the point of common coupling (PCC), these microgrids are linked to the utility grid through a switching mechanism. In grid-connected scenarios, microgrids can offer valuable grid services, including frequency and voltage regulation, real and reactive power support, and demand response, to mitigate potential capacity, power quality, and reliability challenges on the utility grid. Crucial voltage and frequency controls within the microgrid are vital during islanded operations, which can be facilitated by energy storage systems.

By Connectivity, Grid connected  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

In the realm of energy production, remote microgrids have emerged as a viable solution for communities in regions where traditional grid connectivity is unattainable or intermittent. These microgrids, typically sized at 10 kW, have gained significant traction in countries such as India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, and several African and Southeast Asian nations. Diesel generators continue to play a pivotal role in these systems, but the recent cost reduction trend of solar panels and advancements in energy storage technology are enabling the proliferation of clean energy microgrids. Energy storage systems are being integrated into microgrids to minimize fuel expenses, cater to peak loads, and optimize diesel generator performance by operating in their most efficient zones.

North America is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024

Research Analysis Overview

Microgrids are localized electrical systems that can operate connected to the main power grid or in isolation, providing electricity supply to dispersed loads. Smart microgrids are the advanced version of traditional microgrids, integrating generators such as solar PV, wind turbine generators, microturbines, fuel cells, and energy storage systems like battery storage. These micro-sources enable the microgrid to operate independently during grid outages or peak loads, ensuring uninterrupted power supply. Microgrid topologies include standalone, utility-interactive, and hybrid microgrid networks. Hybrid microgrids combine multiple energy sources and storage systems, ensuring a reliable and efficient electricity supply. Solar generators, wind energy, hydrogen fuel cells, and battery storage systems are common micro-sources in hybrid microgrids. Electrical networks in microgrids can be linked to the main power grid or form a regional electric grid, depending on the size and power requirements of the system. Microgrids can also manage peak loads by prioritizing essential loads during grid outages or power shortages. The integration of dispersed energy resources in microgrids enhances the resilience and sustainability of the electrical system. In summary, microgrids are essential for ensuring reliable electricity supply, especially in remote areas or during grid outages. Smart microgrids, with their advanced features and integration of various energy sources and storage systems, offer a more efficient, sustainable, and resilient power generation and distribution solution. Renewable resources such as solar energy and wind energy play a crucial role in microgrid power generation, making them an essential component of the future electric system.
