Navigant Research Expects Global Telecom Network Providers to Install Nearly 113.5 GW of New Distributed Generation and Energy Storage Capacity between 2018 and 2027


Emerging markets of Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and Latin America are expected to be the fastest-growing

A new report from Navigant Research examines the global market for distributed generation (DG) and energy storage (ES) technologies in the telecom industry, providing forecasts for capacity and revenue, segmented by technology and region, through 2027.

Telecom network companies around the world are rapidly building out wireless infrastructure to meet consumer demands and provide services. With an increasing emphasis on reliability, DG and ES technologies are logical solutions to ensure the continuous operation of telecom networks, regardless of location or external factors. Click to tweet: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH, global telecom network providers are expected to install nearly 113.5 GW of cumulative new DG and ES capacity between 2018 and 2027.

“Telecom networks are increasingly providing services considered essential to consumers and thus need to be reliably provided, especially in cases of disaster or emergency,” says Alex Eller, senior research analyst with Navigant Research. “Moderate growth in new DG and ES capacity for telecom infrastructure will likely continue, despite high growth pockets for certain regions and technologies.”

According to the report, the primary driver for DG and ES for the telecom sector will continue to be emerging markets that have a higher proportion of off-grid and bad grid mobile tower sites. These emerging market regions include Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa, which are expected to be the fastest-growing markets throughout the forecast period.

The report, Market Data: Distributed Generation and Energy Storage in Telecom Networks, analyzes the global market for DG and ES technologies in the telecom industry. The technologies covered include reciprocating gensets (both diesel and natural gas), fuel cells, solar PV, and battery-based uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems (incorporating lithium ion, lead-acid, and other advanced batteries). Global market forecasts for capacity and revenue, segmented by technology and region, extend through 2027. The report also examines the key market issues related to DG and ES technologies, including the impact of new network technologies and improved energy efficiency. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.
