DC Distribution Network Revenue to Reach $5.1B

A new report from Navigant Research examines the opportunity for direct current (DC) distribution networks in four key markets segments, including off and bad grid telecommunications, data centers, commercial building grids, and off-grid military applications, with global market forecasts for capacity and implementation revenue through 2024.

While large, centralized power plants are expected to continue to play a role in providing alternating current (AC) power to the wholesale macrogrid, there is growing momentum at the electric service distribution level to diversify power offerings and pursue solutions incorporating a growing proportion of DC. The industry’s current focus is on medium-voltage DC distribution networks—systems that are mostly concentrated on the data center market segment, but that can also apply to commercial buildings.
