While one of the key measures of a society’s advance is the degree to which it can distance itself from its trash, waste is increasingly viewed as a strategic resource. In developed economies, tightening regulations around the disposal of waste and the increasing cost of landfilling are driving demand for innovative solutions across the municipal solid waste (MSW) value chain. In developing economies, the focus is on building out basic infrastructure in the face of rapid urbanization and rising levels of affluence. In all cases, emerging smart technologies offer the opportunity to enhance MSW collection, generate renewable energy, and optimize the environmental performance of landfills.

The emerging smart waste market is expected to grow rapidly over the next decade. Although Europe and North America are the most mature markets today, Asia Pacific is expected to see its share of MSW managed by smart technologies more than double between 2014 and 2023. Smart energy recovery, which includes facilities like incineration plants, landfill gas capture projects, and advanced biorefineries, is the most mature smart waste segment. Yet, high capital costs and the localized focus of waste management services remain key impediments to greater smart technology diffusion in the waste sector. Navigant Research forecasts that annual smart MSW technology revenue will grow from $2.3 billion in 2014 to $6.5 billion in 2023.

The evolution of energy markets is accelerating in the direction of a greater reliance upon distributed energy resources (DER). Successful strategies to manage this increasing two-way complexity are being deployed today all over the world. One such strategy is a virtual power plant (VPP), which can be viewed as a manifestation of the concept of transactive energy. Essentially, the VPP can combine a rich diversity of independent resources into a network via sophisticated planning, scheduling, and bidding of DER-based services.

Several recent trends are creating an environment conducive to VPPs. These include the increasing penetration of smart meters and other smart grid technologies, growth in variable renewable generation, and emerging markets for ancillary services. However, challenges to commercial rollouts of VPPs remain, including the lack of reliance upon dynamic, real-time pricing and consumer pushback against the smart grid. The end goal for this market is the mixed asset VPP segment, as it brings distributed generation (DG) and demand response (DR) together to provide a synergistic sharing of grid resources. Navigant Research forecasts that total annual VPP vendor revenue will grow from $1.1 billion in 2014 to $5.3 billion in 2023 under a base scenario.

The advanced battery industry is growing at an extremely aggressive pace, with lithium ion (Li-ion) leading the charge. However, Li-ion is not the perfect battery; it has supply constraints, manufacturing cost reduction obstacles, and safety issues that leave it vulnerable to new chemistries that solve some or all of those problems. Research and development of new battery chemistries is fast developing and will soon have a major impact on the battery industry.

The emergence of these new battery chemistries is occurring in the context of an enormous increase in the world’s appetite for advanced energy storage devices. Although energy density has been the most sought-after goal for new chemistries – and most show improvements in energy density – it is not the only favorable quality for a next-generation battery. Cost and safety have become important concerns for most battery buyers. By offering cheaper price points, next-generation batteries can enable even more applications for batteries. In addition, some applications (e.g., electric vehicle and grid storage batteries) require higher safety standards and value inherently safe chemistries. Navigant Research forecasts that global next-generation advanced battery revenue will grow from $182.3 million in 2014 to $9.4 billion in 2023.

This Navigant Research report analyzes the global market for next-generation advanced batteries, with a focus on the current leading battery chemistry, Li-ion, and the energy storage device types that might eventually replace it: ultracapacitors and lithium sulfur, solid electrolyte, magnesium ion, next-generation flow, and metal-air batteries. The study provides an analysis of the market issues and battery landscape associated with next-generation advanced batteries. Global market forecasts for energy capacity, power capacity, and revenue, segmented by region, application, and chemistry, extend through 2023. The report also examines the key imminent and emerging technologies related to advanced batteries and provides in-depth profiles of the major industry players.

Electric utilities are facing new technology trends that alter the traditional relationship with residential customers. This broad disruption is known collectively as distributed energy resources (DER). At the residential level, disruption derives mainly from solar PV panels, which enable customers to generate some of their own electricity and sell unneeded power back to the utility. The latest technologies, now more affordable, have stimulated growing interest and adoption by residential customers who see an opportunity for greater control of their energy consumption.

Navigant Research’s term for this emerging set of technologies is residential generation and storage (RGS). Solar PV panels are but one of those technologies altering the traditional residential power industry. New stationary and mobile electricity storage capabilities and enhanced energy management tools are also providing residential customers more options to control usage and lower costs. Residential combined heat and power (resCHP) systems represent another distributed generation (DG) technology customers might consider. These residential energy innovations and attractive financing mechanisms provide new choices for residential customers that heretofore were out of reach. Navigant Research forecasts that global RGS revenue will grow from $54.7 billion in 2013 to $71.6 billion in 2023.

This Navigant Research report examines the market for RGS technologies and discusses how they are reshaping the future residential power industry. The study analyzes the key market drivers and inhibitors influencing the market, as well as major technology issues. Global market forecasts, segmented by region and category – solar PV, energy storage, electric vehicles (EVs), and resCHP – extend through 2023. The report also provides profiles of established and new industry players and explores policy issues related to RGS technologies.

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.

This seventh edition of the Microgrid Deployment Tracker reveals a global microgrid market that continues to become increasingly robust. Navigant Research’s focus in this update is primarily on the remote, off-grid segment, which represents the best overall value proposition for the microgrid platform today. Although most microgrids are still retrofit projects that assemble existing assets to enable legacy technology to communicate with new technology, they are beginning to move more into the mainstream. Around the world, new vendors continue to enter this space with new projects and approaches.

As of 2Q 2014, Navigant Research has identified a total of 4,393 MW of total microgrid capacity throughout the world, up from 4,148 MW in the previous update in 4Q 2013. The 2Q 2014 Microgrid Deployment Tracker again reinforces the premise that North America is the world’s most fertile environment for microgrids due to the declining reliability of its distribution grid. The region is still the world’s leading market for microgrids with a planned, proposed, and deployed capacity of 2,874 MW, which represents roughly 66% of the global microgrid market. North America also leads the world in terms of microgrids currently under development or in the proposal process with a capacity market share of 67%.

This Navigant Research report tracks data on known grid-tied and remote microgrid projects in the proposal, planning, and deployed stages in six principal geographies, including details on the various technologies employed in individual projects. The report covers six microgrid segments: commercial/industrial, community/utility, institutional/campus, military, remote systems, and direct current (DC) systems. Specific information is provided on the capacity of the following generation assets: diesel, combined heat and power (CHP), solar PV, wind, and fuel cells. The Tracker also details the rated capacity, duration, and types of energy storage for each project and breaks out data by world region and microgrid segment.

Key Questions Addressed:
  • Which microgrid segments are gaining the most market traction?
  • Which regions of the world have the most microgrids already in operation?
  • What types of generation resources have been and are being deployed in microgrids?
