Microgrid Deployment Tracker 4Q17

Commercial and Industrial, Community, Utility Distribution, Institutional/Campus, Military, Remote, and DC Microgrids: Projects by Region, Segment, and Top 10 Countries and US States

Navigant Research’s Microgrid Deployment Tracker 4Q17 is the 13 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 (C&I) segment made a huge push in this update, adding over 2 GW of microgrid capacity. Most of this new capacity is due to the addition of the 2,200 MW Saudi Aramco gas-oil separation plant from Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL).

As of 4Q 2017, Navigant Research has identified 1,869 project entries, representing 20,766.2 MW of operating, under development, and proposed microgrid capacity and 60 new projects. New in this update is the classification of projects that are on hold. There are 32 such projects identified in the Tracker, and this capacity was not counted toward any capacity totals. These projects will remain in the database in case they become operational. Solar PV capacity continued showing strong growth in this update, adding almost 323 MW of capacity. Diesel capacity remains the leading specific generation technology in terms of total capacity, though its lead continues to shrink. Asia Pacific remains ahead of North America for total overall capacity; however, North America still leads in terms of number of projects.

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: C&I, community, utility distribution, institutional/campus, military, remote, and direct current (DC) systems. Information is provided on capacity and project numbers by distributed generation type, operational and under development/proposed status, top 10 countries, and top 10 US states. The Tracker also segments projects currently known to be on hold, as well as operational, under development, and proposed.
