Distributed Energy

Over the past few years, globally, Distributed Energy is considered to be one of the most hotly discussed topics that continue to reshape the power sector industry. Barring the advanced economies in the United States and Europe where the power system is well developed, other developing economies which are experiencing growing gap in power supply-demand coupled with ageing T&D infrastructure have accelerated the deployment of distributed energy technologies to address the immediate power needs. Besides, the deployment of such distributed power generation technologies like solar PV and small-scale wind near the place of use by consumers have challenged the power distribution and in specific the business models of utilities. The Distributed Energy research team in Frost & Sullivan constantly tracks such technologies and provides global industry analysis, custom consulting, growth consulting (strategy consulting), market research, market forecasts, and insights into emerging technologies. This program area covers the following markets:

  • Engine and Turbine Generator Sets
  • On-site renewable and alternative power and fuels
  • DG services
  • New business models in on-site power
  • Microgrids
  • Virtual Power Plants
