Navigant Research's Microgrid Deployment Tracker 2Q17 is the 12th edition of its microgrid database that is updated semiannually. This edition of the Tracker shows remote projects leading all microgrid segments in terms of both microgrid capacity and number of projects. The commercial and industrial segment made a huge push in this update, however. It added over 2 GW of microgrid capacity, mostly from the addition of a portfolio of natural gas generator projects in India and China.
As of 2Q 2017, Navigant Research has identified 1,842 project entries, representing 19,279.4 MW of operating, under development, and proposed microgrid capacity and 173 new projects. Company survey responses aided the push for the addition of so many new projects. Schneider Electric, Spirae, and Emerson, among others, provided an update of current projects they are involved in. Solar PV capacity continued showing strong growth in this update, adding almost 500 MW of capacity. Diesel capacity remains the leading generation technology in terms of total capacity, though its lead continues shrink. Asia Pacific jumped ahead of North America in terms of total overall capacity, though North America still leads in number of projects. While North America remains No. 1 in operational microgrid capacity, Asia Pacific leads the market for under development and proposed capacity due to the China program expected to come online by 2020.
This Navigant Research report tracks data on known grid-tied and remote microgrid projects in the proposal, planning, and deployed stages in six geographies. The report covers seven microgrid segments: commercial and industrial, community, utility distribution, institutional/campus, military, remote, and direct current (DC) systems. Specific information is provided on the capacity and project numbers by distributed generation type, operational and under development/proposed capacity, top 10 countries, and top 10 microgrid companies. The Tracker also segments projects currently known to be on hold.
