Distributed generation, also termed as Embedded Generation, refers to small-to-medium scale modular power generation plants that are embedded into the distribution network at a point closer to the site of consumption. The electric power industry worldwide is fast realizing the vast potential of distributed power generation as a Game Changer technology that is providing the much needed resiliency over the traditional centralized electric grid. Distributed generation has emerged as a perfect solution for the rapidly growing demand for cost effective electricity. Superior attributes of distribution generation (DG) driving widespread adoption include lower CAPEX; improved electric power security, reliability and quality; and a versatile source of standby power, emergency power, peak power, or lower-cost power. Small households, rural communities, large commercial buildings, and industrial facilities represent few of the many application areas where distributed generation is finding increasing deployments supported by its techno-commercial viability. This report analyzes the worldwide markets for Distributed Generation (DG) in US$ Million and Annual Capacity Installations (in Megawatts). The Global and regional markets are further analyzed in terms of Annual Capacity Installations (in Megawatts) by the following Technologies: Renewable Technologies, and Others.
