Frost & Sullivan: Strong telecom penetration in off-grid remote areas creates opportunities for solar, wind hybrid power systems

2014-08-21

The lack of grid connectivity in distant and rural areas – especially in developing countries – is prompting end users to retrofit or replace the ubiquitous diesel generator set with cost-effective and efficient hybrid power systems. Hybrid power system manufacturers across the globe can leverage this trend while also targeting potential growth segments such as resorts, remote tourist spots, and off-grid residential communities to succeed in the market. New analysis from Frost & Sullivan Frost & Sullivan (Mountain View, California, U.S.), Global Hybrid Power Systems Market, finds that the market earned revenues of USD 358.4 million in 2013 and estimates this to reach USD 552.2 million in 2018 at a compound annual growth rate of nine percent. Latin America and Africa are expected to witness the fastest growth. Read more...
