Navigant Research Report Shows Global Revenue for Predictive Analytics for Distributed Generation is Expected to Exceed $287 Million through 2027


Navigant Research expects significant business model innovation
relating to customer data, O&M, and value-added services

A new report from Navigant
examines the global market for predictive analytics
deployment for fossil fueled distributed generation systems (PADG),
providing market forecasts broken out by segment and region, through

The trend of predictive analytics (PA) is spreading across industries,
and despite limited success in fossil fueled distributed generation
systems, Navigant Research predicts significant growth in PADG as
digitization of energy accelerates and ubiquitous connectivity arrives.
PADG is defined as applying machine learning algorithms to operational
datasets collected from distributed generators to predict component or
system failures before they happen, allowing for optimized maintenance
and decreased unplanned downtime. Click

: A new @NavigantRSRCH report shows fast growth in
predictive analytics for distributed generation, growing at 36% CAGR
through 2027.

"In an industry traditionally focused on mechanical performance, PADG
creates a digital twin of the rotating equipment that can be monitored,
modeled, and manipulated to enhance system operation," says Adam Forni,
senior research analyst with Navigant. "Customers adopt PADG for
increased uptime and optimized maintenance, but the path to widespread
deployment of PA is capturing adjacent use cases of digitization,
including real-time monitoring, asset and fleet management, and energy
use cases like virtual power plant revenue."

According to the report, the key drivers for PADG are demand for
reliable onsite generation, the increased digitization of such systems,
and the need to maximize returns of such systems. As traditional
generators are increasingly digitized, Navigant Research expects
significant business model innovation from vendors relating to customer
data that could be used to differentiate their offerings and increase
future business.
