DER Deployments for Microgrids: Regional Market Forecasts on Capacity and Revenue for Nine DER Technologies
Published: August 12, 2020 Content info: 61 Pages; 47 Tables, Charts & Figures
Description

The driving force behind microgrid deployments is the growth in a wide variety of distributed energy resources (DER). As one of many options to aggregate and optimize DER, the microgrid platform allows for new levels of resilience and reliability. These options are of special value in light of emerging threats to global power grids, extreme weather events, earthquakes, wildfires, and terrorist threats. At the same time, microgrids can help organize mixed asset fleets of DER at the distribution network level. With the right set of controls technologies, this platform can not only offer value streams to site hosts and other microgrid customers but also provide value upstream to the larger grid. It is in this latter function that microgrids overlap with other networking platforms such as virtual power plants (VPPs) and DER management systems.

The availability of government support for microgrids is clearly affected by the design of incentives and subsidies for the gamut of available DER technologies that could be integrated into a microgrid. Support for DER assets will increase the viability of microgrids in any particular region. However, some forms of support can counterintuitively limit future microgrid applications. Furthermore, in some cases, a decline in subsidy support, particularly for renewable generation technologies, can surprisingly create incentives for microgrids.

This Guidehouse Insights report focuses on how each of the following nine DER assets are being deployed across each region of the world: biomass, diesel generation sets (gensets), energy storage, fuel cells, hydropower, microturbines, natural gas gensets, solar PV, and wind. This report provides capacity and revenue forecasts for these technologies from 2020 through 2029.

KEY QUESTIONS ADDRESSED:

  • Which DER technologies will be the most commonly deployed assets in 2020?
  • How does the mix of DER assets incorporated into microgrids change over time?
  • What are the key standards that affect microgrid integration with DER assets?
  • Why are solar PV and energy storage the leading DER choices for microgrids?
  • Which regions of the world lean toward which DER options?
  • Which DER technology is the leading source of revenue by 2029?
  • What is the total value of leading DER assets being rolled into microgrids in each year over the coming decade?

  • Manufacturers of DER technologies
  • Energy storage vendors
  • Solar PV companies
  • Microgrid developers
  • Microgrid integrators
  • Utilities
  • Regulators
