Distributed Generation Technologies See Continued Growth Globally
The share of global power generation from decentralized technologies has increased 0.2 percentage points in the past two years.
The level rose from 7% in 2002 to 7.2% in 2004, according to the latest annual ‘World Survey of Decentralized Energy' conducted by the World Alliance for Decentralized Energy. "The long-discussed and expected transition from a central power model to a hybrid DE-central mix may possibly be underway, though slowly," and it is optimistic that "this market share will continue to expand."
The report assesses recent progress in market growth for decentralized energy to assess key trends and market drivers, and to review developments in the world's markets. Between 2002 and 2004, 32.2 GWe of DE capacity was added, most of which was high-efficiency cogeneration. "Unlike the cogeneration market, PV industry growth rates remain very high during the period."
