Microgrids in Asia Pacific

Commercial/Industrial, Community/Utility, Campus/Institutional,
and Remote Microgrids: Country-Level Market Analysis and Forecasts

In recent years, the Asia Pacific region has experienced particularly robust demand for microgrids due to economic development, electrification, and industrialization. These factors are directly related to the growing need for more electricity and the resulting development of renewable distributed energy generation (RDEG) and ultimately microgrids. As renewable energy capacity and electricity consumption continue to rise, the number of microgrid projects deployed in Asia Pacific, both for electrification purposes and as experimental test beds, is also rising.

In emerging countries such as China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines, electricity has not been and still is not a commodity service for everyone. Inspired by demand from consumers and recent economic development, remote microgrids will show strong growth in these countries through 2023. Some of the developed nations, including Australia, Japan, Singapore, and South Korea, will pursue technology development and pilot projects in the next few years and then will deploy diverse applications, especially in the commercial/industrial, campus/institutional, and community/utility microgrid segments. Navigant Research forecasts that annual grid-tied and remote microgrid capacity in the nine select Asia Pacific countries will grow from 37.0 MW in 2013 to 597.3 MW in 2023.

This Navigant Research report analyzes the Asia Pacific market for microgrids in four key segments (commercial/industrial, community/utility, campus/institutional, and remote) and nine select countries (Australia, China, India, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and the Philippines). The study provides an analysis of the market issues, including case studies, opportunities, and challenges, associated with microgrids. Market forecasts for capacity and revenue, broken out by segment and country, extend through 2023. The report also examines the main technologies related to microgrids and profiles the key market players.
