NEW YORK, May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
Microgrids are an emerging smart grid platform that incorporates a variety of hardware and software product offerings to enable the integration of distributed energy generation in a variety of forms. Microgrid projects may be grid-tied or remote and are utilized in several key application segments including commercial/industrial, community/utility, institutional/campus, military, and remote installations.
This edition of the Microgrid Deployment Tracker reinforces two major trends that Pike Research has identified in our past analysis. First, North America continues to be the world's most promising market for grid-tied microgrid projects, with more than 50 new projects coming to light since the last tracker update. These projects boosted overall planned capacity in North America to 1,550 MW in 2Q 2012, up 51% from 1,026 MW identified in our 4Q 2011 update. Second, Pike Research finds that the remote microgrid segment is the best long-term bet in the sector. As supporting evidence for this conclusion, the region boasting the largest growth in this edition of the tracker was "Rest of World", with planned capacity in these countries rising from 76 MW to 391 MW. Many of these projects are in the very early planning stages.
This Pike Research tracker report provides a detailed and comprehensive database of worldwide microgrid projects. The tracker covers microgrids in five key segments: commercial/industrial, community/utility, institutional/campus, military, and remote systems. Deployments are segmented by world region, and the tracker includes details on generation capacity, power generation sources, facility type, and companies involved for each project.Key Questions Addressed:
Which of the primary applications – commercial/industrial, community/utility, institutional/campus, military and remote – leads in capacity deployments today?
Which geography leads the world in total deployments to date?
Which vendors are involved with which projects, and where?
What regions of the world are hot spots for remote systems, the leading microgrid segment in terms of sheer numbers of projects and total revenues?Who needs this report?
