Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard: Remote Microgrid Players

Assessment of Strategy and Execution for 12 Companies

Remote microgrids, which typically operate in island mode on a 24/7 basis, need to be robust systems given that they are often operating in regions of extreme heat or cold and are constructed far from usual supply chains. They also tend to feature the greatest diversity of renewable resources of any other market segment by virtue of locations in remote regions blessed by ample sun, wind, water, or other resources, including geothermal.

Representing 45% of existing microgrid capacity worldwide, these remote systems are where the microgrid industry began. They are arguably where some of the greatest innovation is being nurtured on technology, business models, and modularity. In short, this is the primary microgrid market worldwide, with literally hundreds of companies globally vying for a piece of the implementation spending pie.

This Guidehouse Insights report profiles and ranks 12 leading companies on their strategy for gaining market success specifically within this microgrid segment. Along with scores on strategy, which encompasses metrics on partners, business model innovation, and value chain capture, companies are then also ranked on how they have executed on these strategies. Metrics in this execution ranking include data on product quality and reliability, controls approaches, and project portfolio.
