Global DER Deployment Database 1Q21

Distributed Renewables, Distributed Energy Storage, DERMS, EV Charging Loads, Demand Response, and Energy Efficiency: Global Market Forecasts

The deployment of distributed energy resources (DER) is expected to continue to increase in 2021 despite challenges posed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has caused severe disruptions to the supply chain, including difficulties with sourcing and new construction. Although COVID-19 will likely slow DER deployment in 2021, declining technology costs, new business models, and an increased focus on clean energy investments is anticipated to allow new global DER capacity deployments to continue to exceed the deployment of new centralized generation.

This report covers DER technologies grouped in four distinct parts of the value chain that generate, manage, and consume electricity. Despite their distinct characteristics, these technologies usually operate behind the meter (BTM) at customer facilities.

This Guidehouse Insights report provides technology capacity and revenue forecasts for 14 leading DER technology markets globally. In addition, it provides data about countries and regions where the proliferation of these resources is expected to have the greatest influence over the next decade. The technology and capacity forecasts are segmented by two types of end consumer: residential and other installations. The latter segment includes commercial, industrial, community/multifamily, institutional, military, and remote (island) installations, grouped under the commercial, industrial, and institutional (C&I) category in this report.
