Microgrid Markets: Moving Beyond Critical Infrastructure

Thursday, Jul 11, 2013

Microgrid projects represent 3,800 MW of power in progress or operating capacity worldwide, with 2,505 MW in North America alone. Though smaller in scale than the centralized electricity systems, microgrids consists of the same generation, distribution, and regulation components and growth in the sector will bring market opportunities.

Conducive to renewable assets integration and smart grid technologies, microgrids will contribute to grid modernization and the move towards smart infrastructure. Currently, microgrids see applications in campus/institutional, commercial/industrial, defense/military base, community and utility, & Island and remote “off-grid” locations. In addition to their energy self-reliance, microgrids can also, via their connection with the main grid, lend stability and contribute to demand smoothing. Yet, despite such advantages, microgrids face obstacles in their compatibility with incumbent utilities as well as market barriers.
