    What is a microgrid?

    A microgrid is a self-contained energy system that serves a small geographic area, such as a hospital, college campus, or corporate center. It typically consists of a small-scale power generation system, such as solar panels, wind turbines, or diesel generators, and may include energy storage, such as batteries or fuel cells, to provide power during periods of low or no generation.

    Microgrids are designed to provide reliable and resilient power to communities, particularly in areas with unreliable or unstable grid infrastructure. They can also help to integrate renewable energy sources into the grid, reduce reliance on fossil fuels, and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

    Segment Analysis

    By Connectivity Type

    The market is segmented as grid-connected and off-grid. The grid-connected segment is expected to witness a significant growth rate in the market during the forecast period owing to the potential of the connected microgrids to handle peak demand, improve system supply, and maintain stability in the event of a large network breakdown. Furthermore, growing consumer demand for power supply security, together with the development of Tier II and III cities, backed by government regulations and guidelines, will give birth to opportunities for business growth.

    By Grid Type

    The market is segmented as AC microgrid, DC microgrid, and hybrid. AC microgrid type is expected to register a high growth rate in the global microgrid market owing to its lower transmission losses, minimum heat generation, and effective high-end voltage levels across the network. Furthermore, it is extremely compatible with grid networks and does not require inverters for power delivery, propelling the industry dynamics. Also, the increasing deployment of high-voltage AC power networks, as well as big solar and wind farms connected to AC transmission lines, will positively influence the business environment.

    By Power Source Type

    The market is segmented as diesel generators, natural gas, solar PV, CHP, and others. The natural gas power source seems to dominate the market during the forecast period. Rising carbon emission concerns, in addition to a major shift towards renewable energy sources, will influence industry revenue. Low carbon emissions, continuous power supply, great flexibility for quick deployment, and significant renewable integration will drive market demand.

    By Storage Device Type

    The market is segmented as lithium-ion, lead acid, flow battery, flywheel, and others. The lithium-ion-based storage device segment is likely to dominate the market during the forecast period. The industry trend will be driven by effective performance, extended life cycles, high energy density, and a rising propensity for battery-powered devices. Additionally, the widespread adoption of sustainable energy systems with intensive research and development efforts will have a favorable effect on market expansion.

    By Application Type

    The market is segmented as healthcare, educational institutes, military, utility, industrial/commercial, remote, and others. The industrial/commercial application is estimated to account for the major share of the market during the forecast period on account of the increasing government efforts and mandates to reconstruct and overhaul existing T&D networks, as well as increased incentives to install energy-efficient alternatives. In the current context, the industrial and commercial sectors are focusing on the implementation of smart solutions across new and traditional grid infrastructure, which will favorably influence industry potential.

    Regional Insights

    Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the leading region in the global microgrid market during the forecast period. This regional market is driven by the rising favorable norms and incentives by various countries to pace up the sustainable energy mix. In addition, regional carbon emission targets and increased usage of stand-alone power sources will foster the technology demand over the forecast period. In addition, North and South Americas accounted for more than 35% market share in 2021.
