Microturbines Market Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2017 - 2025
Microturbines Market – Overview
Microturbines can be described as a small scale power generating equipment that produce electrical power by burning either gaseous or liquid fuels. The combustion of these fuels in the turbine produces high speed rotation of the turbine shaft, which then turns an electrical generator for producing electrical power. Microturbines can work using an array of liquid and gaseous fuels including natural gas, biogas, sour gases, gasoline, diesel, kerosene, and heating oil. Microturbines operate at high speeds and are mainly used for power generation or for CHP (combined heat and power) applications similar to gas turbines. They have low emission combustion systems, whose emission performance is comparable to that of larger gas turbines. Microturbines also have an uptime of around 99% with potential for reduced maintenance and are highly reliable and durable for generating continuous and high quality power.
Aging power infrastructure and poor grid connectivity in several parts of the world are expected to increase demand for on-site power generation around the globe. This, in turn, is anticipated to increase demand for microturbinesglobally. Moreover, microturbine systems can be installed in a much easier way in comparison to complex conventional power plants and can produce low-cost energy from much cleaner sources. Microturbine installations also enjoy incentives from governments and regulatory authorities. However, microturbines suffer from low fuel-to-electric efficiency, which is a major restraint for the market.
