Latest edition of Navigant Research’s Microgrid Deployment Tracker now includes business models for a cross-section of projects initiated between 2015 and 2017

A new report from  presents data on known grid-tied and remote microgrid projects in the proposal, planning, and deployed stages across six geographies and seven microgrid segments.

Since 2Q 2017, tracked microgrid capacity has experienced a boost, particularly in Asia Pacific with 10,204.5 MW developed. North America follows with 7,779.4 MW, yet the region has twice the number of tracked entries in Asia Pacific—1,105. : According to a new report from , as of 2Q 2018, 2,134 microgrid project entries have been identified, representing 24.98 GW of operating, under development, and proposed microgrid capacity and 239 new entries.

“While Asia Pacific and North America still account for almost three-quarters of all microgrid capacity in the Tracker, Latin America boasted the largest addition of microgrid capacity in this update with 363.5 MW added—a significant shift from the previous edition,” said Johnathon de Villier, research analyst with Navigant Research. “And for the first time, the Tracker includes the core business models—energy as a service, government financing, owner financing, utility rate base, and other—for a selection of projects deployed between 2015 and 2017.”

According to the report, other key trends include a strong growth in the remote segment and a quickly shrinking gap between solar PV and diesel capacities. Solar PV added 111 project entries and 475 MW of capacity to diesel’s 45 entries and 544 MW.

This Navigant Research report, , tracks data on known grid-tied and remote microgrid projects in the proposal, planning, and deployed stages in six geographies. The report covers seven microgrid segments: C&I, community, utility distribution, institutional/campus, military, remote, and direct current (DC) systems. Information is provided on capacity and project numbers by distributed generation type, operational and under development/proposed status, top 10 countries, and top 10 US states. The Tracker also segments projects currently known to be on hold, as well as operational, under development, and proposed projects. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the .

­­­ Vendors are creating unique partnerships to leverage domain knowledge and amplify existing skill sets

A new report from examines the market for emerging business models for intelligent buildings, providing global market forecasts, segmented by business model type, building type, and region, extending through 2027.

Digitization and analytics have accelerated the evolution of the commercial buildings technologies market. Meanwhile, modern HVAC and building control systems are providing the foundational equipment for the intelligent buildings market with advanced digital technologies and other smart systems. : According to a new report from , the total revenue for emerging business models reshaping the intelligent buildings market is expected to grow to $582 billion in 2027.

“Vendors in the intelligent buildings market are developing business models to grow the market—and their market share—with new value-added services, end-to-end solution offerings, and strategic partnerships,” says Tom Machinchick, principal research analyst with Navigant Research. “Customers are also playing a role in this market evolution with increased expectations for products and services that add value across the organization, and vendors are responding with diverse solutions that go beyond energy-related benefits to include individualized occupant comfort solutions, enterprise-level business metrics, indoor wayfinding, integrated security solutions, and other services.”

According to the report, partnering strategies are key to expanding the offerings in the commercial intelligent buildings market, because no one vendor has all the capabilities to develop a complete end-to-end solution. Strategic partnerships will empower smaller vendors to enter these markets, leveraging their niche knowledge to amplify existing skill sets and round out a more complete solution.

The report, , examines the opportunities afforded by four business models in the commercial building technologies and intelligent buildings markets, as well as how these fit into scenarios for the emerging Energy Cloud. The study explores the market issues, including the evolution of product-oriented, subscription-based, solutions provider, and network-based business models. Global market forecasts, segmented by business model type, building type, and region, extend through 2027. The report also examines the key enabling technologies, future business model opportunities, and ecosystem of value chain stakeholders in the commercial building technologies and intelligent buildings markets. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the .

Improvements in PCS technology are being driven by leading markets for distributed energy resources

A new report from examines global market forecasts for energy storage power conversion systems (PCS) pricing and annual market size, broken out by segment, component, and region, extending through 2027.

As the global energy storage industry continues to grow and innovate, PCS are emerging as a key technology to facilitate widespread grid integration. This is especially represented in the Asia Pacific region, which is home to the largest and fastest growing markets for energy storage. : According to a new report from , Asia Pacific region is expected to hold 43.2% of the PCS cumulative global market through 2027.

“Although Asia Pacific is expected to control a large global share of the PCS market, North America and Western Europe will also see a high total capacity for new energy storage and large market for PCS revenue,” says Alex Eller, senior research analyst with Navigant. “In addition, a much greater portion of Western Europe’s energy storage capacity is expected to come from distributed systems with higher price points.”

According to the report, leading markets for distributed energy resources (DER) are a large driver of improvements to PCS technology, where regulation is moving to require smart inverters for DER in general. While many PCS are being implemented by companies around the world, several new technological innovations have been introduced to the industry, including smart islanding, backup power, lower costs based on modern materials and designs, and automated backup support.

This Navigant Research report, , explores the market landscape for energy storage PCS and the innovations in technology that will enable the new wave of industry growth. The study provides an analysis of the key market and technology issues and outlines the four segments of the energy storage market: utility-scale, behind-the-meter (BTM) commercial and industrial (C&I), BTM residential, and remote/off-grid. Global market forecasts for PCS pricing and annual market size, broken out by segment, component, and region, extend through 2027. The report also examines the major advances in technology related to energy storage PCSs and inverters, as well as the competitive landscape. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the .
