Captive Power Plants Market : Overview
A captive power plant or captive power generation facility is usually used by power-intensive industries. Industries where energy consumption is on the higher side require uninterrupted power supply. The captive power plant suffices the energy requirements of a local company or factory, and usually, the surplus energy is exported to the local energy distribution networks.
Captive power plants help in maintaining high energy efficiency as these are usually facilitated closer to the source of use. As captive power plants work on the distributed generation model, these serve the purpose of higher fuel efficiency. Energy losses on account of transmission of electricity continue to be a challenge for most industries -- off-grid captive power plants can mitigate these issues.
Captive power plant market is likely to witness steady growth over the course of the forecast period, on account of growing energy demand from small- and medium-scale industries. The specific benefits that captive power plants offer to small industries are likely to boost investments. Self-generation security, combined with high fuel efficiency are likely to provide an impetus to the growth of the captive power plant during the assessment period.
Installation of captive power plants in aluminum smelting processes is likely to create new opportunities for stakeholders during the assessment period. Aluminum smelting is one of the most energy-intensive units, and energy spend accounts for a significant percentage of the total production process. Even marginal reduction in energy spending can improve the bottom lines of aluminum smelting companies. Among the various alternatives available to aluminum smelting industry, captive power plants offer a feasible option.
Sensing the growing emphasis on thermal efficiency, captive power plant companies are relying on innovations. For example, in the case of aluminum smelting units, super critical thermal power plants may be better suited as compared to subcritical thermal power plants.
Asia Pacific: A Lucrative Market for Captive Power Plants
Asia Pacific continues to be a lucrative market for captive power plants globally. The challenges associated with round-the-clock power supply and lack of sufficient grids in tier II and suburban areas continue to influence small and medium scale industries to focus on self-sufficiency.
The captive power plant market in Asia Pacific is also likely to witness a fillip on account of broader, macroeconomic factors. The region is home to two fastest growing economies in the world. The unwavering focus on industrialization and infrastructure development has encourage activity in the small- and medium-size industry. These broader developments have also necessitated the need for uninterrupted power supply, which in turn is likely to augur well for the prospects of the captive power plant market players.
