The Global Microgrid Controller Market size is expected to reach $12.6 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 21.8% CAGR during the forecast period.

A microgrid is a network of interconnected workloads and distributed energy sources that behave with the grid as a single, controllable entity. To function in island mode or grid-connected mode, it can connect to and disconnect from the grid. Distributed energy sources including generators, storage, and controllable loads can be incorporated into microgrids.

A microgrid controller is a system that manages the microgrid and specifies how and when to connect to/disconnect from the grid. When a system is islanded, actual and reactive power balance must be maintained immediately. Over a longer period, the control strategy must be used to decide how to allocate the resources. The allocation of resources is also done by a microgrid controller.

In the past, combined heat and power (CHP) systems powered by fossil fuels and generators with reciprocating engines were used to power microgrids. Nowadays, however, projects are utilizing more environmentally friendly resources, such as solar energy and energy storage. When emerging technologies like fuel cells and even small customizable nuclear reactors become commercially viable.

Microgrids can be powered by renewable energy sources, combustion turbines powered by natural gas or other sources. After weather- or protection outage hits the larger system, they can power crucial facilities. Additionally, microgrids can serve as the neighborhood’s or a hospital’s primary source of electricity. Many metropolitan areas are engaged in systems that can more effectively integrate generation assets and load, offer numerous users, and/or meet ecological or emergency response objectives.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The manufacturing and production activities across all industrial verticals have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. The governments of many countries have implemented a multitude of restrictions and lockdowns to deal with the problem. These elements have reduced industry employment and financial growth prospects. Due to the drop in demand for electricity, particularly for industrial operations, the necessity for microgrids and their operating systems significantly dropped during the pandemic.

Market Growth Factors

Increasing Demand For Consistent, Dependable Power Supply

Massive, distant power plants that use fossil fuels and are connected to centralized power grids produce electricity that is transmitted between different areas and nations. However, it has become more and more clear that these power plants have issues with ineffective power transmission. Conventional grids are susceptible to natural disasters, which typically cause network problems or blackouts. For instance, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines and Hurricane Sandy in the US, both caused widespread outages in urban centers like New York City and the Leyte Islands.

Reduced Energy Costs For Consumers And Businesses

Microgrids can help their clients save money while also generating income. Through effective energy supply management, they lower expenses. By reselling energy and services to the grid, they generate income. As a result, consumers have a new level of power in the energy markets. Through their microgrids, they can now produce and control energy as well as consume it. Prosumers are the name for these clients. Ancillary services perform grid-supporting tasks like frequency regulation and spinning reserves.

Market Restraining Factors

Changing International Standards, Laws, And Regulations

Being relatively new, microgrid technology is currently too dynamic and unpredictable for regulatory frameworks. For example, rules and guidelines for integrating microgrids into the larger grid are still being developed. The acceptability of microgrids is restricted by the current framework structure. For instance, grid-connected power inverters must shut down when they detect grid problems according to IEEE Standard 1547.

Connectivity Outlook

Based on connectivity, the microgrid controller market is bifurcated into grid connected and off-grid connected. The grid-connected segment acquired the highest revenue share in the microgrid controller market in 2021. Microgrids that are connected to the grid are made up of several generators, sophisticated controllers, and distribution networks. In addition to increasing grid resilience, enhancing electricity quality, and reducing environmental impact, these technologies also have a number of additional advantages that drive demand.

Offering Outlook

On the basis of offering, the microgrid controller market is divided into hardware, software, and services. The software segment witnessed a substantial revenue share in the microgrid controller market in 2021. A microgrid software is a comprehensive platform that enables project planning, visualization, and optimization for everyone from financiers to engineers and features integrated design stages.

End-User Outlook

Based on end-use application, the microgrid controller market is categorized into commercial & industrial, remote areas, military, government, utilities, manufacturing and healthcare. The military segment garnered a substantial revenue share in the microgrid controller market in 2021. For international military activities, power security is a crucial concern. Microgrids also improve physical security and cybersecurity, two major military issues, because they can run independently from the grid.

Regional Outlook

On the basis of region, the microgrid controller market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and LAMEA. The North American region garnered the highest revenue share in the microgrid controller market in 2021. The significant expansion of microgrids in the region is being fueled by third-party administration of microgrids and a tendency toward smaller (less than 5 MW) repeatable modular systems.
