March 26, 2012 - PRLog -- The shift to a distributed generation model will challenge the business model of existing traditional utilities and generators as the demand for centrally generated power falls. These companies will need to adapt if they are to survive. It will also have social implications that extend beyond the electricity system itself as consumers take control of where and how they generate their electricity.

Report Scope:

* Realize up to date competitive intelligence through a comprehensive review of distributed generation technologies concepts.
* Assess the emerging trends in distributed generation technologies.
* Identify which key trends will offer the greatest growth potential and learn which technology trends are likely to allow greater market impact.
* Compare how manufacturers are developing distributed generation technologies.
* Quantify costs of distributed generation technologies, with comparisons against forms of power, installation costs, and cost of electricity.

Report Highlights

A 13.7MW aeroderivative gas turbine with an electrical output efficiency of 34.9% will show an overall efficiency of 77.6% in a CHP configuration whereas an 11.3MW industrial turbine with a simple cycle efficiency of 29.8% can achieve 80.5% in the CHP configuration.

A 300kW gas engine in a combined heat and power system for a commercial building costs around $2,000/kW. Meanwhile the cost of a cogeneration system for a waste treatment plant is around $2,350/kW - $4,250/kW depending on the size and number of engines.

SOFC units can achieve practical efficiencies of 50%, somewhat lower than the theoretical efficiency of around 60%. However the extremely high operating temperature means that waste heat from the cell can be used to drive an auxiliary gas turbine, pushing theoretical efficiency to 70%.

Reasons to Get this Report:

* What are the drivers shaping and influencing distributed generation development in the electricity industry?
* What does distributed generation cost? What will it cost in the future?
* Which distributed generation technology types will be the winners and which the losers in terms of power generated, cost, and viability?
* Which distributed generation technology types are likely to find favor with manufacturers moving forward?
* Which emerging technologies are gaining in popularity and why?
