Distributed Natural Gas Generation Overview - Distributed Natural Gas Generator Sets, Fuel Cells, and Microturbines for Onsite Generation: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts
Published: November 21, 2019 Content info: 48 Pages; 35 Tables, Charts & Figures
Description

Distributed natural gas generation (DNGG) has experienced significant growth over the past several years. This trend is expected to continue as DNGG technologies enjoy low cost natural gas (NG) and continued infrastructure development. DNGGs also have cleaner emissions profiles compared with their diesel counterparts. DNGGs are poised to experience market growth due to the trend of shifting toward distributed energy resources (DER).

Diesel still reigns as the global leader in distributed power generation, but stricter emissions regulations have paved the way for DNGGs to further integrate into the market. Developed nations have the strictest standards, but developing nations' needs for reliable power where grids may be faulty coupled with growing electricity demand provide a market for DNGGs. Of the three technologies covered in this report-NG gensets, stationary fuel cells (SFCs), and microturbines-NG gensets have a significantly more established market. SFCs and microturbines have come a long way over the past several decades but need continued innovation to decrease system costs.

This Navigant Research, a Guidehouse company, report projects global market capacity and revenue for DNGG technologies regionally and by application, which are segmented into residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial. The study provides an analysis of key market and technology developments for NG gensets (less than 6 MW), SFCs, and microturbines. Global market forecasts for capacity and revenue, segmented by technology and region, extend through 2028.
