United States Microgrid Market stood at USD1492.31 million in 2020 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 9.31% until 2026. As per United States Department of Energy, microgrid is defined as a group of distributed energy resources (DERs) and interconnected loads surrounded by clearly defined electrical boundaries that behaves as a single controllable unit with respect to the grid. Power Quality refers to the quality of the voltage supplied in a certain area, which strongly depends on the load’s characteristics and the transmission and distribution grid infrastructure in the area. Significant low voltage quality which can be caused in long distribution lines with asymmetric loads, eventually resulting in effects such as low and unbalanced voltage, voltage harmonics, and flicker in certain load locations. The situation ultimately leads to power disruption in several areas when demand surpasses actual generation, or the thermal constraints of the power system equipment risk the integrity of the power systems. Thus, a microgrid with an opportunity to disconnect from the utility grid in case of power quality problems may benefit the loads inside its borders significantly.

Based on power source, the market can be segmented into natural gas, diesel, solar pv, fuel cell and others. The natural gas segment dominated the market in 2020 due to increasing push by the government to lower carbon emissions in power generation. United States being the world’s largest natural gas producer has a bright future in the microgrid industry. Moreover, bringing the cost of this fuel source down and making it more readily available domestically thus would provide new options for power users. Moreover, the addition of natural gas generation not only allows for a continuous source to help even out the power supply, but it also opens the door for new operations within the microgrid.

Based on end user industry, the market can be segmented into educational institutes, military, utilities, industrial, healthcare and others. The educational institutes segment will dominate the market in forecast period as higher education is very sensitive to power outages for several reasons. For example, higher education hosts around USD80 billion annually in research and development, much of it heavily dependent on electricity. Moreover, aging of campus infrastructure across the United States and installation of new reliable, uninterrupted, and secure power supply system is going to drive the United States microgrid market.

Based on region, the market can be segmented into North-East United States, South United States, West United States and Mid-West United States, where North-east United States dominated the market in 2020. This can be attributed to the frequent storms in the region that caused widespread outages, due to which North-Eastern states are choosing microgrids as an alternative to keep the power on for vital services when utility grid is down.

Some of the major players in the United States Microgrid Market include Schneider Electric SE, General Electric Company, Hitachi ABB Power Grids Ltd., Bloom energy Corporation, Tesla, Inc., Enchanted Rock, Ltd.
