Pune, India, April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global virtual power plant market size is projected to reach USD 2.85 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 27.2% during the forecast period. Expanding utilization of renewables in electricity generation around the globe will be the primary growth driver for this market, states Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Virtual Power Plant Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Technology (Demand Response, Distributed Generation, and Mixed Asset), By End-User (Industrial, Commercial, and Residential), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027”. Recent data published by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) show that 6,586 TWh of electricity was produced from renewables in 2018, reflecting a 6.1% increase from 2017 levels.

Moreover, the total public investment in renewables in 2018 stood at USD 21 billion in 2018, the IRENA highlights. Virtual power plants (VPPs) are expected to play a central role in enhancing the cost-effectiveness of renewables, especially amid crises such as the current COVID-19 pandemic, which has severely impacted the fossil fuel industry. Institutions such as the Frankfurt School-UNEP suggest that the pandemic is a golden opportunity for governments to prioritize spending on clean energy sources and make them an integral part of their post-coronavirus recovery packages. Together, these developments are likely to fuel the demand for VPPs in the near future.

Market Driver

Ambitious Green Energy Targets by Countries to Stoke Adoption of VPPs

In a bid to tackle the effects of climate change and global warming, countries worldwide have set highly ambitious emission reduction targets for themselves, as enunciated under the Paris Agreement of 2015. For example, Morocco’s National Energy Strategy aims at generating 42% of its electricity from renewables by 2020, and 52% by 2030. The country’s CO2 reduction targets are well-aligned with limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius under the Paris Agreement. India, under its National Energy Plan, intends to achieve 40% power generation through renewables by 2030.

Another significant example is Costa Rica, which has been producing 98% of its electricity from renewables, mainly hydropower, for the past four years, and aims at reaching 100% by 2021. Virtual power plants can facilitate and accelerate countries’ shift towards renewables as these plants are not only able to balance renewable generation and consumption through smart distribution, but are also able to store extra energy efficiently and manage the grid during peak load periods.
