Global Distributed Energy Generation Market Report 2023-2028: A Deep Dive into DG Tech, From Reciprocating Engines to Solar PV

Dublin, Nov. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Global Market for Distributed Energy Generation" report has been added to's offering.

In 2022, the global market for distributed energy generation reached $133.5 billion and expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.3%.Existing growth trends as well as future projections indicate growth across the board for DG technologies with global markets reaching $241.6 billion by 2028.

The report discusses different technologies of distributed energy generation, like reciprocating engines, small hydropower, solar PV, small combustion turbines, small wind, fuel cells, and microturbines. It offers a detailed analysis of different technologies and the prevalent trends and opportunities in the market.

Uneven and sometimes volatile growth in the distributed electricity generation market is mainly attributed to the economic and industrial development rates across the globe, country-wide regulatory support, fuel cost, raw-material cost, equipment costs and performance and energy source. The last decade has witnessed a strong expansion of DG research and product development among high-performing technologies and consolidation and reorganization among lower-performing technologies.

Revenue expansion, however, was not as rapid as anticipated due to various macro-economic factors such as increase in crude oil price, outbreak of the novel coronavirus, and the Russia-Ukraine war, among others. These trends, in turn, generated downward cost pressure, resulting in an increasingly competitive DG market, especially for solar and technologies that compete with reciprocating engines.

However, continued global economic revival will enable several DG technologies to achieve significant growth while others expected to struggle to gain market traction against strong competitive influences. The DG market is founded on several discrete technologies including reciprocating engines, small combustion turbines, microturbines, fuel cells, small hydropower, small wind and distributed solar.

DG technologies provide localized generation capacity for a wide array of main line and niche markets including reliable and consistent power generation, peaking power/peak shaving, renewable energy generation, conversion of waste fuels to electricity, emergency or standby power generation capacity, rural and remote generation, mobile electricity generation as well as a variety of other applications.

The market values are estimated based on multiple factors and analysis of manufacturers' revenues. Market dynamics within each industry are identified. Technological advancements and trends are reviewed, and other influences, such as economic conditions and standards, are discussed. Because this is a global study, the publisher analyzes domestic and international technological issues and economic considerations.

The market segments of the report are focused on technical and commercial aspects of distributed energy generation. The report also discusses the regional policy and regulatory framework and ESG scenario for the industry in order to maintain environmental sustainability and comply with government regulations.

The report also analyzes the regional and country-wise markets for distributed energy generation. The segments are forecast for 2023 to 2028, with 2022 as a base year. Furthermore, the report offers a competitive scenario of the market, including a detailed analysis of key market players and a list of small and regional market players.

Each regional market considered in this analysis shows potential for market growth in the coming years. Installation of a DG system, especially for larger facilities, can include minor to considerable additional engineering, design, and construction of auxiliary/appurtenant facilities.
