As per the 4Q 2015 edition of Navigant Research’s Microgrid Deployment Tracker, there are 1,437 microgrid projects worldwide, representing more than 13 GW of capacity.
According to Navigant Research, remote microgrids now make up more than half of all microgrids deployed globally.
While the United States still leads all countries in terms of microgrid capacity and total project numbers, Asia Pacific is assuming more of a market leader role, according to the report.
The region is tied with North America in terms of total identified microgrid capacity, with each region representing 42 percent of the total market.
This update revealed more than 1,300 MW of newly identified capacity and found that more than 100 countries now have microgrid projects deployed.
“This latest version of the Microgrid Deployment Tracker underscores that microgrids are becoming an increasingly global phenomenon,” says Peter Asmus, principal research analyst with Navigant Research.
