Global Distributed Generation (DG) Market to Reach US$386.7 Billion by 2026

The global distributed generation (DG) market, estimated to be worth US$217.8 billion in 2020, is expected to reach a revised size of US$386.7 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 10. 6% over the analysis period.

Distributed generation, also known as embedded generation, refers to small to medium scale modular power generation plants that are integrated into the distribution grid at a point closer to the consumption site than station power generators. central.

The liberalization and deregulation of energy markets and the accelerated restructuring of electric utilities, as well as commercial factors such as the simplification of land acquisition, the reduction of the construction time of modular modules of electricity production. Distributed electricity and falling transmission costs are the major factors driving the distributed power trend.

The huge vacuum created by power plant shutdowns in developed economies in North America and Western Europe, and the ever-increasing electricity needs of populous emerging economies, are opening up new opportunities for distributed power generation.

Rapidly growing demand for energy globally and escalating costs of power grid expansion are fueling the growth of the market. The market is also driven by the growing success of R&D initiatives, demonstration projects, and field trials, which are driving down the cost of distributed energy technologies and thus fueling their adoption.

Fuel cells, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.6% to reach US$68.6 billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, the growth of the solar PV cell segment is readjusted to a revised CAGR of 12.4% for the next 7-year period.

This segment currently represents a 31.7% share of the global distributed generation (DG) market. Distributed fuel cell generation systems, with their sophisticated attributes, offer low emissions, high reliability and help commercial customers reduce costs. Factors such as federal emission standards and energy industry deregulation are driving the growth of the segment.

The adoption of strict regulations on carbon emissions, the growing awareness of the pollution attributed to conventional energy sources and the provision of financial incentives in the form of tax credits, rebates, net metering and feed-in tariffs are all driving strong growth in solar energy. PV GD market.

The US market is estimated at $36.7 billion in 2021, while China is expected to reach $97.7 billion by 2026

The distributed generation (DG) market in the United States is estimated to be worth US$36.7 billion in 2021. The country currently accounts for a 16% share of the global market. China, the second largest economy in the world, is expected to reach an estimated market size of US$97.7 billion in 2026, growing at a CAGR of 14.7% over the analysis period.

Other noteworthy geographic markets include Japan and Canada, each forecasting growth of 6.9% and 7.4% respectively over the analysis period. In Europe, Germany is expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 7.6%, while the rest of the European market (as defined in the study) will reach US$116.2 billion by the end of the year. analysis period.

Growing energy demand from industrial, commercial and residential sectors is driving strong growth of DG systems in the North America region. Favorable government policies, incentives such as tax credits, and emphasis on renewable energy are expected to drive the market growth. The macro objective of achieving a resilient energy union in the EU and the first mover advantage the region has enjoyed are expected to drive market expansion in Europe.

Growing demand for rural electrification in developing economies is driving demand for distributed generation. Rapid industrialization in developing economies and the growing demand for reliable, quality power from energy-intensive industries are also increasing the importance of DG systems.

Wind turbine segment to reach $83.5 billion by 2026

Wind turbine technology is also expected to show strong growth in the coming years, with increasing emphasis on environmental protection driving its adoption. Technological advances that have reduced the cost and increased the size of large wind turbines, along with favorable government policies, have led to the widespread installation of wind farms with large-scale wind turbines of 1-10 MW capacity in recent years. years.
