New Market Assessment

Project: With the increased adoption of solar and other renewable generation sources, microgrids were being touted as a possible game-changer in the management and distribution of electricity worldwide. In the developing world, microgrids presented an opportunity to electrify remote, far flung areas that had yet to be integrated into the traditional grid. To help Yingli understand how microgrids and off-grid solutions could shape the future of energy management and distribution in Latin America, the SGE Immersion team evaluated the microgrid/off-grid market in Latin America, including an assessment of local conditions, public policy and incentive programs, key stakeholders, financing options, and next generation products that would be critical to the success of microgrid/off-grid solutions in the region.
