Top 10 Growth Opportunities in Grid Modernization and Flexibility: Decarbonization and Decentralization of Power Generation to Drive Massive Investment in the Electricity Network

Dublin, March 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Top 10 Growth Opportunities in Grid Modernization and Flexibility" report has been added to's offering.

The industry faced significant challenges in 2023, as the ripple effect of supply chain and logistical issues echoed throughout the industry, which struggled to meet the strong demand for transmission and distribution (T&D) equipment.

Despite supply chain challenges and economic uncertainty, the pressing need for grid modernization to meet the requirements of an increasingly decentralized grid resulted in an investment of $174.42 billion in 2023, up from $162.43 billion in 2022. China, India and South Asia, Europe, and North America account for approximately 80% of the T&D grid equipment market revenues.

The transition from fossils to renewable energy gains pace with record investment in renewables in 2023; solar PV and wind power combined accounted for $567.00 billion. Climate commitments and supportive regulations will drive further investment in the power generation industry and the associated T&D equipment demand for new and aging grids. China has significantly increased its renewable targets in recent years (in part to support domestic technology companies). The Inflation Reduction Act passed in 2022 in the United States provides a degree of investment certainly never seen before and incentives for investment in domestic supply chains. The Russo-Ukrainian war has galvanized Europe to act, as energy security has become a global Mega Trend.

Greater grid flexibility and resilience have become a key priority for utilities and effective energy management systems such as distributed energy resource management systems (DERMS) and virtual power plants (VPP) will help ensure a predictable and reliable grid. Energy storage will also be a pivotal technology and allow some deferral of T&D investment.
