Supportive Government Policies Driving the Market
Owing to the vast benefits offered, governments across the globe have supported the deployment of microgrids in the form of fiscal and legislative incentives. In order to promote energy conservation, carbon emissions reduction, as well as structural reform of energy supply, many countries in the European Union, along with countries, like the United States, Japan, etc., have issued relevant policies and support plans to promote the development of microgrid projects. At the same time, China’s Thirteenth Five Year Plan for Electricity Development also incorporated microgrids as an essential way of energy restructuring. A similar investment is also expected to increase in other countries as well during the forecast period, in turn, supplementing the microgrid market.
Integration with Wholesale Power Market Driving Demand in Europe
The integration of microgrids with wholesale power market is a big boost for the development of microgrid network in Europe. The widespread network of microgrid can be integrated with the power network, and the owners of the microgrid can execute the trading activities. The region with power surplus can supply electricity to power deficit region by trading electricity in the power market, which is a big boost for the power sector, in turn, increasing the uptake of microgrid projects in the European region.
Japan to Witness High Demand in Asia-Pacific
As part of Japan’s policies to boost energy efficiency and power generation from renewable sources, the country’s sustained efforts toward smart grid deployment is expected to supplement the microgrid market in the Asia-Pacific region. To increase resiliency against natural disasters, Japanese cities are moving away from large-scale power toward microgrids. Higashi-Matsushima, a coastal city that was stricken by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, is leading the switch. Supported by the country’s national resilience program, the city has constructed a large number of microgrids and has decentralized renewable power generation. Similar initiatives are also expected to increase in other cities of Japan, along with small microgrid connectivity, as Japan aims to move forward with the objective of preventing blackouts and minimizing damages during natural disasters.
