North America CHP Market Growth is anticipated to witness an upsurge on account of growing captive power generation demand along with increasing investments toward deployment of sustainable energy sources. Stringent regulations, policies and norms toward the reduction of carbon emission levels will drive the industry outlook. In addition, rising decentralized energy generation coupled with ongoing technological enhancements to improve energy efficiency will drive the business scenario.
Commercial CHP industry is estimated to witness impetus owing to rising electricity demand along with growing adoption of smart district heating grid networks. Stringent infrastructure emission norms along with government aided financial incentives & favorable net metering policies will propel the installation of CHP facilities. In 2019, State of Alabama introduced SAVES revolving loan program, providing grants and incentives ranging from USD 50,000 to USD 4 million to commercial customers across CHP installation.
Control and monitoring at different temperature & pressures along with integrated speed control and dynamic load adjustments are some prominent factors stimulating the product portfolio. Growing inclination toward smart heating networks along with rising adoption of integrated heat & power generation plants will drive the industry outlook. In addition, replacement and refurbishment of conventional power generation systems with advanced cogeneration plants will positively influence the North America CHP market.
Ongoing technological advancements to integrate cloud based technologies across the CHP power plants will positively stimulate the industry statistics. For instance, ENER-G introduced an E-Power technology in 2018, enhancing cogeneration plant performance providing real time analysis, high engine performance and low maintenance cost.Moreover, introduction of government schemes including domestic renewable incentives and road transport fuel certificates will complement the biomass CHP plants industry.
Increasing investments toward research and development sector by various leading players to improve medium & large engines power efficiency by 35% - 50% will complement the product portfolio. In addition, growing adoption of biomass fueled engines along with rising applicability of these systems across colder areas will positively influence the product demand. For instance, in 2019 the Department of Energy announced installation of over 50 GW of CHP systems across the U.S.
Ongoing COVID-19 pandemic across the region may impact the projected cogeneration plants deployment targets till third quarter of 2020. However, rising electricity demand followed by focused renewable targets will drive the business scenario. In addition, ramping back up of materials and components supply from various countries will help the manufacturers to uphold their inventories.
Strategic mergers & acquisitions, partnerships, collaborations and joint ventures among international and regional vendors to deploy efficient CHP systems will positively influence the industry outlook. Eminent players operating across the industry includes ABB Limited, Wartsila, Yanmar, MAN Diesel & Turbo, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Aegis Energy, General Electric, 2G Energy, ENER-G Rudox, Bosch Thermotechnology, Cummins, Fuel Cell Energy, Veolia, MWM, BDR Thermea, and Siemens AG.
