Modular Microgrids

Market Potential for Modular Microgrid Segments: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

A key benefit of the microgrid is that it can be customized to meet the precise resiliency, economic, and environmental goals of any customer. Yet there is a growing movement within the microgrid market to radically scale up deployments. This alternative approach commoditizes standard microgrid offerings that can be pieced together, thereby shrinking design and deployment costs.

Though a modest market, modular microgrids are particularly appealing in certain application segments, namely remote microgrids. This segment is where difficult logistics and limited available expertise combine to create the perfect conditions for a modular approach. Tactical military applications also make sense, though such deployments are primarily driven by the US. Generally speaking, it is modular technology coupled with energy as a service (EaaS) business models that is propelling global future growth.

This Guidehouse Insights report provides microgrid stakeholders—including project developers, utilities, hardware and software vendors, equipment and hardware vendors, utilities, software companies, installation and service providers, and other balance of system (BOS) component manufacturers—with forecasts for the total modular market potential for all major microgrid segments, institutional, C&I, community, remote, utility distribution, and tactical modular military systems. The report includes all major global regions (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa), and examines a 10-year forecast period through 2029.
