Microgrid Deployment Tracker 4Q18

Projects and Trends in the Global Microgrid Market by Region, Segment, Business Model, and Top 10 US States

The Microgrid Deployment Tracker 4Q18 is the 15th edition of Navigant Research’s global microgrid database, which is updated semiannually. Highlights from this iteration include a streamlined Excel databook and new analyses of changes in microgrid configurations over time. Utility distribution projects lead all customer segments in terms of new additions at 40% of new capacity, with remote projects contributing another 34%.

As of 4Q 2018, Navigant Research has identified 2,258 projects representing 19,575.0 MW of planned and installed power capacity. This edition of the Tracker includes 241 new entries, a total of 1,239.1 MW. North America is the leading microgrid market in terms of total capacity, followed by Asia Pacific and the Middle East & Africa. Solar PV and energy storage feature prominently in modern microgrid systems, particularly as rural electrification and energy access programs fuel growth in the remote segment.

This Navigant Research report tracks data on known grid-tied and remote microgrid projects in the proposal, planning, and deployed stages across six regions worldwide. It covers seven market segments: commercial/industrial, community, utility distribution, institutional/campus, military, remote, and direct current. Specific project-level data is provided on total, installed, and planned capacities, generation technology mix, and the 10 US states leading the domestic microgrid market.
