Hybrid Power Systems Market Driven By Fuel Efficiency And Environmental Concerns

Published Date : 12 Apr 2023

The global hybrid power system market size was USD 643.91 million in 2022, and it will grow at a rate of CAGR 6.65% in the years to come to touch around USD 1,225.79 million by 2032.

The hybrid power system market growth is driven by the increasing popularity of renewable sources of energy globally, the increasing need for reduction in carbon emissions, and the rising inclination toward the use of hybrid power.

Market Overview:

Hybrid power systems are designed to generate and utilize electrical power. A hybrid power system combines two or more types of generation sources to produce electricity. They are independent of a large, centralized electricity system and use more than one sort of power source. They can vary in terms of size from very large island networks of several megawatts to single-kilowatt domestic power supplies. Hybrid power systems that deliver alternating current at a specific frequency are innovative technology for delivering electricity in remote areas. They can reap the benefits of the convenience with which AC power can be switched to higher voltages to reduce power loss while transmitting power over comparatively long distances. Isolated AC systems include conventional AC diesel generators, distributed AC loads, and an electrical distribution system.

A hybrid system can include additional renewable energy sources (wind turbines, photovoltaic panels) and storage. Photovoltaic and wind turbines are the most typical generating sources for a hybrid power system, with a diesel generator serving as a backup. The utilization of renewable power generation technologies minimizes the usage of imported fossil fuels, permitting cleaner electrical power generation and power supply optimization. Renewable energy sources, battery storage, internal combustion engines, generators, and power conditioning equipment are the essential components of a hybrid power system. The economic costs of hybrid power systems are influenced by system size, capital costs, operating expenses, load profile, technological availability, and the availability of the energy utilized to supply power to the system, such as fuel, wind, solar insolation, and others.

Hybrid power systems often combine renewable energy sources with fossil fuel powered diesel generators to generate electricity, which is either sent into the grid or stored in batteries. The primary purpose of incorporating renewable energy into a hybrid power system is to conserve diesel fuel. There are two commonly used hybrid power system configurations such as systems based primarily on diesel generators with renewable energy used to reduce fuel consumption and the other one is systems relying on renewable energy with a diesel generator serving as a backup supply for longer periods of low renewable energy input or high load demand.

Hybrid power is considered a reliable power generation with minimized fuel consumption, low operational and maintenance costs. Demand for hybrid power solutions is being driven by an increase in hybrid power generation, reduced fuel generation, and a reduction in carbon emissions. Additionally, the market has grown as a result of the increasing initiatives by governments for electricity generation using renewable sources. Furthermore, the increasing awareness of available renewable energy sources is projected to fuel the growth of the global hybrid power system market during the forecast period.

As renewable energy sources gain popularity, power companies are focusing on creating electricity from the sun, wind, water, and fuel cells in the region. Rising demand from countries such as Japan, China, and India is contributing to increasing regional consumption. Several Asia Pacific countries have a strong focus on the rapid adoption of renewable energy sources. China and India are installing additional power plants to meet the increased demand for energy from the residential and industrial sectors.

On the other hand, the Europe market is expected to register a rapid CAGR during the forecast period due to the rapid growth of renewable energy installations in the region. Europe is focusing on implementing new and more effective energy sources to meet the increased demand in the region.

Report Highlights:

  • By Type, the Solar PV-Diesel segment is expected to expand at a robust growth rate during the forecast period. The PV-diesel hybrid system combines a solar system with a diesel generator to power the load. The goal of technology is to provide customers with electricity 24 hours a day while optimizing the working hours of the diesel generator. A photovoltaic (PV) diesel hybrid system is typically comprised of a PV system, diesel gensets, and sophisticated management to guarantee that the level of solar energy delivered into the system precisely matches the demand at the moment.
  • By End-User, in 2022, the Commercial segment is predicted to hold the largest market share. Rising commercial projects across the globe are expected to drive the segment growth. Off-grid sites are one of the most common applications for hybrid power systems. These are the locations where a grid connection is not required to receive power.

Market Dynamics:


The rapidly growing popularity of hybrid power systems 

The increase in popularity of hybrid power systems owing to their capacity to produce maximum output while utilizing a minimal amount of fuel is expected to boost the hybrid power systems market during the forecast period. Hybrid power systems are widely adopted around the world owing to rising environmental concerns. Hybrid power systems are in great demand owing to the limited availability of traditional energy sources. In addition, growing awareness about renewable sources of energy is positively influencing the global hybrid power systems market across the globe.


High initial investment

The high initial capital investment is projected to hamper the growth of the market. In addition, the higher payback time period is likely to limit the expansion of the global hybrid power systems market during the forecast period.


Increasing governments investments in hybrid power solutions 

The implementation of hybrid power systems has surged in various emerging economies owing to the increase in favorable government incentives to generate electricity with the help of renewable sources. Increasing government investment in different renewable sources to generate electricity in rural areas is expected to boost the global hybrid power systems market. The increased efforts of governmental bodies in many developing nations around the world to attain 100% rural electrification through innovative projects are expected to offer lucrative commercial opportunities in the hybrid power systems market. Due to the instability of the grid and the lack of access in isolated and rural areas, the building of hybrid power systems has rapidly grown. The market for technology-driven hybrid power systems is characterized by high initial investments and low costs of switching.
