Global Virtual Power Plant Market is valued at approximately USD 1.17 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 32.89% over the forecast period 2023-2030. Virtual Power Plants combines the production capabilities of several distributed energy sources to improve power generation and trade or sell power on the electricity market. It makes it possible to have a steady supply of electricity and permits utilities to produce electricity using renewable energy sources, store it in battery banks, and then provide it to users. It offers real-time information on the networked units’ capacity utilization. The market is growing due to factors such as the rising share of renewable energy in the mix of energy sources, falling solar generation prices, and improvements in energy storage. The power industry is increasing the use of cutting-edge technologies such as cloud platforms and Internet of Things (IoT) applications is also boosting the market growth for virtual power plants. The Virtual Power Plant market is expanding because of factors such as increasing demand for renewable power generation, and a growing shift towards distributed generation.
Renewable power generation, such as solar and wind, often occurs in a decentralized manner, with small-scale installations spread across various locations. Virtual Power Plants can effectively integrate these distributed energy resources into a unified system, optimizing their collective output and enhancing grid stability The International European Agency predicts that by 2026, worldwide renewable electricity capacity would have increased by more than 60% from 2020 levels to more than 4 800 GW. Thus, rising demand for renewable power generation is driving market growth. In addition, the increasing development of smart grids, increasing demand for combined renewable energy & growing investments in energy storage are creating new opportunities for the market. However, the high cost of virtual power plants and inadequate infrastructure stifles market growth throughout the forecast period of 2023-2030.
The key regions considered for the Global Virtual Power Plant Market study includes Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the market in 2022 owing to the dominance of key market players, an increase in renewable energy installations, such as solar and wind power, increasing penetration of energy storage technologies, and a growing trend towards decentralized energy generation, with more consumers adopting rooftop solar panels. Whereas, Asia Pacific is projected to have significant growth owing to factors such as rising investment in renewable energy power generation, and rising government support in the industry.
