Off-grid Power Systems for Remote Sensing Market (Technology - Battery Backup, Fuel Cells; End-users - Oil & Gas, Wind) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth Trends, and Forecast 2016 - 2024

Off-grid refers to systems which are not connected to local or main power grid. These systems rely on a secondary power source such as batteries and fuel cells. Off-grid systems are often used in various situations such as where the grid lines are not available, to reduce the load from the main grid, unreliable power or where 100% standalone power is required. Off-grid power is increasingly used by various monitoring systems: SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems, LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) systems, and various other remote monitoring devices.

Off-grid power systems for remote sensing are in demand by various end-user industries such as oil and gas and wind energy. The developing oil and gas industry and wind energy industry infrastructure is proving to be a boon for the off grid power systems for remote sensing market. The market is expected to grow during the forecast period.

The oil and gas industry uses off-grid power systems for remote sensing for various purposes such as at natural gas and oil well head monitoring sites, at natural gas pipeline monitoring sites, and for oil & gas exploration. Other uses of off-grid power systems for remote sensing are in water resource management, weather stations, sea level monitoring systems, early flood warning sites, etc. The market also drives the demand for secondary power sources such as fuel cells. These power systems used in remote sensing systems are available in different size and capacity. Off-grid power systems are installed based upon the requirement of a remote sensing system to provide stable service for a long time.

Use of off-grid technologies reduces the reliability on grid power, enabling smooth operations in remote sensing activities. Battery backup uses batteries with lead acid, lithium ion, and nickel cadmium etc. as a material to ensure longer battery life for smooth performance. Solar PV technology also uses battery backup due to its intermittent power supply problem. In terms of technology, battery backup is anticipated to be the largest segment of the global off-grid power systems for remote sensing market during the forecast period. The battery backup segment is driven by the use of advanced technologies and the influx of investments in battery manufacturing. High investments in battery manufacturing are resulting in advancements such as increased energy for longer runtimes and improved power for high current load requirements which are particularly required in remote sensing applications. Significant efforts are being undertaken to develop the battery technology for remote sensing applications. For instance, the ratio of capacity to size is increasing. This enables a higher number of power consuming activities such as longer flights and heavier payloads. In terms of new developments, major companies are developing remote power systems for outdoor backup power solutions which provide uninterrupted power supply for monitoring oil & gas and wind energy sector activities.

Fuel cells are also used as one of the off-grid power supply options for remote sensing in the oil & gas and wind energy sector. Fuel cell technologies are being developed in order to support climate change and meet energy security goals several industries, such as transportation, industry, buildings, and power.  Fuel cell companies are seeking government help to accelerate the development and deployment of fuel cell technologies by ensuring continued research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) funding for hydrogen generation and conversion technologies, such as electrolyzers and fuel cells.

Other technologies considered in off-grid power systems for remote sensing market include solar PV and hybrid technology. Solar PV can be used as a source of power for UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) in remote sensing, usually for large size platforms with long flying missions. Solar cells combined with Li Po (Lithium Ion Polymer) and Li S (Lithium Ion Sulfide) batteries constitute a day/night power solution for several days of flight which is a hybrid technology of solar cells and battery backup.

North America held the major market share in the off-grid power systems for remote sensing market in 2014. The U.S. and Canada held around 85% share of the North American power systems for remote sensing market. Growth in the renewable energy sector due to the decline in oil prices is driving growth of the power systems for remote sensing market in North America. In the U.S., the battery backup market is expanding owing to the growth in the domestic automotive and electronics sectors in the nation. This, in turn, also drives the growth in the remote sensing market which is a crucial part of electronics sector. The growth is attributed to investments in battery as well as fuel cell technologies. The U.S. is one of the leading markets in lithium ion material batteries, accounting for more than 50% market share in North America in 2015.

Europe has significant potential for energy savings across a variety of industrial sectors; this would provide opportunity for large energy efficiency investments. Growing green infrastructure projects coupled with huge government investments to increase energy efficiency in wind, agriculture, bioenergy, forestry, and military sectors is driving Europe’s off-grid power systems for remote sensing market.

The global off-grid power systems for remote sensing market is driven by the need for power surge protection through fuel cells and backup batteries coupled with the growing LiDAR market in wind energy sector. Increasing investments in offshore wind energy plants would also create a demand for off-grid power systems for remote sensing.
