Description

Market Drivers and Barriers, Technology Trends, Competitive Landscape, and Global Market Forecasts In recent years, consolidation of distributed energy resources (DER) has represented a significant component of the energy market. Initially, DER was used at the market edge, where conventional power was difficult and expensive to provide. However, technology advances, business model innovation, changing regulations, and sustainability and resilience concerns have brought DER into the core of future deployment of energy infrastructure. The global proliferation of DER has begun to have a significant, if controversial, influence on the electricity grid and industry. DER encompasses a broad set of solutions including systems and technologies designed to operate closer to electricity grid customers.

Rapidly expanding investment in DER represents a major shift from the centralized, one-way electrical grid. This growth has generated concern and optimism throughout the power industry as regulators and grid operators work to understand the evolving landscape that is redefining the relationship between utilities and customers. The shift from centralized generation requires innovative technologies and solutions on the part of grid operators. Advanced software and hardware enable greater control and interoperability across heterogeneous grid elements that are key components of the Energy Cloud. This Navigant Research report provides a quantitative analysis of the global market for DER technologies and assesses the major market developments, regulatory environment, emerging business models, and technology trends. Technologies covered include distributed generation, demand response (DR), DER management systems (DERMSs), EV charging, distributed energy storage systems (DESSs), and energy efficiency. Installed capacity and revenue forecasts in the commercial and industrial (C&I) and residential segments extend through 2028.
