Global Market for Distributed Generation Technologies
Increased demands on global electrical power systems and incidences of electricity shortages, power quality problems, rolling blackouts, and electricity price spikes have caused many utility customers to seek other sources of high-quality, reliable electricity. Distributed Energy Resources (DER), small-scale power generation sources located close to where electricity is used (e.g., a home or business), provide an alternative to or an enhancement of the traditional electric power grid.

Aruvian's R'search brings a focus on Distributed Generation Technologies, looking at the various technologies involved in the process, economics of distributed generation, leading countries who are actively promoting distributed generation, issues and challenges, growth drivers, etc. Check out the complete table of contents to take a look at this analysis today!
