Utilities make long-term agreements to buy the energy. Since the fuel for these plants is free, there’s money to be made in generating electricity this way…Another Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary, MidAmerican Energy Company…is putting nearly another $1 billion into wind in Iowa…” click here for more

    MICROGRIDS TRIPLING Microgrid Deployment Tracker 2Q15; Commercial/Industrial, Community, Utility Distribution, Institutional/Campus, Military, Remote, and DC Microgrids: Operating, Planned, and Proposed Projects by World Region

    2Q 2015 (Navigant Research)

    “…As of 2Q 2015, Navigant Research has identified a total of 12,031 MW of total microgrid capacity throughout the world, up from 4,393 MW in 2Q 2014—a near tripling of the known scope of the microgrid market…Asia Pacific may emerge as the market leader over the long term….[D]ata collected from projects and project portfolios [shows 47% of [planned] global capacity [is there], compared to North America’s 44%. If one looks at the microgrids that are currently online, however, North America still leads; the region holds a nearly identical market share (66%) compared with data presented in 2Q 2014 (65%). In terms of segments, the remote segment is the clear leader in terms of both numbers of projects and overall capacity, representing 46% of the total microgrid market. This represents a doubling of its market share compared to data collected in 2Q 2014…” click here for more
