Analyst Insight: A Closer Look into Global Microgrid Markets

Global Microgrid Deployment Insights

The Microgrid Deployment Tracker 3Q22 is the 22nd edition of the Microgrid Project Tracker report from Guidehouse Insights, covering seven microgrid market segments and six principal geographies. The Tracker does not list unit sales of devices; instead, it lists operating, planned or under-development, and proposed microgrids and selected portfolios of microgrids by country, program, and vendor. The Tracker represents the largest and most thorough overview of the microgrid market published by any research or government organization. Its purpose is to provide the best up-to-date summary of microgrid projects available globally by highlighting key trends and dynamics across regional markets and customer segments and by generation technology.

This accompanying Analyst Insight maps and discusses emerging features of the dynamic microgrid environment in the US and other leading regions around the world. Microgrid projects are expanding globally, because of falling technology costs and increasing demand due to resiliency attributes, with the US leading by total component microgrid capacity. New laws, such as the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) passed in August 2022, are providing incentives and regulatory guidelines supporting the development of new projects. Additional topics covered include microgrid trends, drivers and barriers, top microgrid markets, deployments on US college and university campuses, case studies exploring new projects and use cases around the world, and a regional market overview.
