Country-wise insights

How is the U.S. Facilitating Uptake of CHPs in Recent Years?

In the U.S, individuals consume over 3x as much electricity per year as they did 50 years ago.  Additionally, it consumes nearly 25% of the world's energy. Based on such high consumption requirements, uptake of CHPs is on the incline across the country.

According to Fact.MR, the United States combined heat and power systems industry is expected to reach US$ 520 Mn by 2031. Manufacturers are striving to introduce energy efficient and cost saving CHP systems, a trend which will majorly influence demand growth.

Why are Combined Heat and Power Systems Flourishing in China?

China’s CHP equipment market was worth US$ 5 Bn as of 2020. According to IEA, China is the only major economy where coal demand increased in 2020. Strong economic growth underpins electricity demand in 2021, while post-COVID stimuli measures support production of steel, cement and other coal-intensive industrial products. 

The Chinese coal power fleet represents around a third of global coal consumption. This includes combined heat and power plants. This demand is only anticipated to accelerate in the future, paving way for future market expansion.

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

Category-wise insights:

Why Natural Gas is Gaining High Traction by Fuel Type?

Owing to properties such as easy transportation and less carbon footprint, natural gas based combined heat and power systems demand is surging, with an anticipated absolute $ opportunity worth US$ 5 Bn through 2031.

The surged demand forecast can be met by conventional assets that were previously approved or under development before the pandemic, mainly in Russia and the Middle East. Supply is also prospective to be enhanced by new investment in U.S shale gas production to support export capacity for liquefied natural gas (LNG) that is currently under development. 

Why Demand for Gas Turbines is Increasing Worldwide?

By prime mower, gas turbine CHP systems are expected to register a CAGR of approximately 3.8% during the forecast period. Global electricity demand is increasing, and it doubled within the last two decades. It is estimated to expand at 2x the pace of energy demand as a whole, in the next 25 years.

This progress can be attributed to the increasing demand for electricity, availability of efficient power generation technology, rising demand for natural gas-fired power plants, impact of the shale gas revolution, and reduction in the emission of carbon dioxide.

Competitive Landscape:

Prominent players are embracing innovative approaches such as ground-breaking marketing tactics, technological advancements, mergers, and acquisitions.   

  • In March 2021, The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) collaborated with Highlands and Islands Airports Limited (HIAL) to decarbonise heat and power at Kirkwall Airport through green hydrogen technology.
  • 2G Energy was selected to deliver a CHP plant which generates heat and electricity of 100% hydrogen – The first one in the UK.
  • In July 2021, Capstone Green Energy signed a 10-year service contract on 1.2 MWs of micro-turbines installed in the fourth-tallest building in New York City. The skyscraper's 1.2 MW energy efficiency plant consists of two Capstone C600S microturbines with Capstone's Integrated Heat Recovery Modules.
