Navigant Publishes Global DER Deployment Database

Navigant Publishes 'Market Data: Demand Response for C&I'

This Navigant Research report examines the proliferation of distributed energy resources (DER) which will be among the most disruptive trends to the traditional energy industry over the next decade. Most energy companies and utilities are already wrestling with revenue erosion due to energy efficiency, demand-side optimization, and solar PV. As deployments of distributed generation and energy storage, plug-in EVs (PEVs), and microgrids gain further traction, the impact on incumbent revenue will become more pronounced.


The global electric power industry is facing transformation from centralized generation toward a more decentralized grid with two-way energy flows, known as the Energy Cloud. The Energy Cloud consists of a mix of DER technology and smart grid solutions poised to disrupt traditional utility models for end consumers. According to Navigant Research estimates, new global DER capacity deployments—including distributed generation, DER, PEV charging load, demand response, and energy efficiency—are outpacing the deployment of new centralized generation capacity.
