Distributed Energy Generation (DEG) Systems Market

Distributed Energy Generation (DEG) Systems Market for CHP, Solar Photovoltaic, Wind Turbine and Fuel Cells in Residential, Building, Institution and Commercial Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2012 - 2018

Over the past couple of decades, the demand for energy has rose significantly. Technological evolution has led to production of electrical appliances catering to several human needs. This in turn has fuelled energy demand. DEG systems are gaining popularity owing to its beneficial properties. They play a crucial role in catering the rising energy demand. The DEG systems are more economical, safer and eco friendly compared to conventional energy generation systems. Insufficient power supplied by centralized power systems coupled with their rising prices are expected to lay groundwork for the DEG systems market. 
 
Insufficient centralized electricity supply, paradigm shift in energy generation towards green technology, increased awareness towards carbon footprint reduction coupled with revised FIT (Feed in Tariff) rates are expected to spur the market growth. Furthermore, the high cost of the raw materials act as a major barrier to the market. However, price decline in coming years is expected to overcome the restraint. Depleting fossil fuel coupled with their rising prices impacts the cost of energy generation.
 
CHP (Combined Heat and Power) and solar PV technology segments are major contributors to the DEG systems market which is followed by wind turbines, microturbines and fuel cell segments. Today’s renewable systems are cost competitive and the most economic option for off-grid electrification. Low prices are likely to open new opportunities for the market which has helped reach grid parity quickly in this high priced electricity markets. The 2004/8/EC directive was developed by the European Commission (EC) in 2004 to trim down emissions (greenhouse gases) and support cogeneration systems. This promotes DEG systems market that contributes positively to the security of energy supply.
 
Currently DEG systems are widely preferred over the conventional power generating systems due to substantial loss of energy over transmission lines. The grid connected systems dominated the market in 2011 while the off grid systems are rapidly growing segments due to growing energy demand in areas without grid connection network. 
Europe dominated the market owing to the glut of investments made by manufacturers and financial support provided by government. Europe acquired maximum market share which was followed by Asia Pacific and North America. Europe and Asia Pacific are the prominent centers for DEG. Asia Pacific market is expected to grow significantly chiefly due to the availability of cheap labor and financial incentive schemes minimizing the production cost. Capstone has a strong presence in Asia Pacific supplying microturbines. The abundance of solar radiation and wind power is expected to spur the market growth in Europe and MEA (Middle East and Africa).
 
The DEG market is dominated by large multinationals worldwide. GE Energy dominated the market in 2012. GE Energy dominated the market on account of its strong brand value and strong distribution network worldwide. Technological evolution affected the market scenario and participants equally. Research and development keeps the manufacturers on their toes which encourages them to formulate new business strategy. Heliatek adopted product differentiation strategy by developing organic solar cells. Mitsubishi Power Systems and Vestas Wind Systems had a global presence coupled with effective distribution network.
 
Capstone Turbine corporation supplies DEG systems to Asia Pacific region marking its strong presence. GE Energy operates under three verticals, GE Energy Management, GE Oil & Gas and GE Power & Water. GE Energy offers wind turbines and solar technology as part of its renewable energy portfolio and sells steam turbines and generators to the electric utility industry. The company is focusing on both organic and inorganic growth. Organic growth is through innovative technological development whereas inorganic growth is through acquisition. GE’s WindBOOST service technology can be considered as organic growth.

Distributed Energy Generation Systems (DEG) Market to Ride on the Back of Increased R&D Activites

Over the forecast period, various factors such as demand for energy, emission reduction goals for greenhouse gases (GHG), increasing government policies, and growing consciousness about the environment are expected to boost global distributed energy generation systems (DEG) market. Market growth is likely to be influenced by the rising research and development initiatives towards the development of new technologies. The demand for distributed energy generation systems is likely to be fuelled by various government schemes and incentives. A case in point is feed-in tariffs in Asia Pacific and North America. Government schemes seek to facilitate the deployment of such systems through various commercial, residential, and industrial applications, which is likely to bolster growth of the global distributed energy generation systems (DEG) market in near future. Depending on the application and also their position, these systems can be run on-grid and off-grid. In addition, it is estimated that the key benefits of DEG over traditional methods of generating energy is estimated to stimulate growth of the market.

Favorable Government Policies to Foster Growth of the Market in Near Future

Since 2014, the implementation of DEG technologies has increased substantially as a result of the adoption of supportive government policies, such as the Production Tax Credit (PTC) and Investment Tax Credit (ITC). PTC policy offers kilowatt-hour tax credit for DEG resource-generated electricity and ITC policy needs tax credit is taken on the basis of the amount invested rather than electricity generated. It is expected that augmented understanding of clean energy sources would increase demand for DEG systems. In addition, DEG systems are cheaper than traditional methods of producing electricity.

Growing awareness about clean sources of energy is likely to increase the demand for DEG systems. In addition to that, these systems are much cheaper than the usual methods of power generation. Therefore, rising demand for a clean energy source together with the economic cost of the item, is projected to have a positive impact on growth of the global distributed energy generation systems (DEG) market in the forthcoming years.
