"The 15th edition of the Microgrid Deployment Tracker shows
North America is the leading microgrid market in terms of total
capacity, followed by Asia Pacific and the Middle East & Africa," says

reveals that solar PV and energy storage feature prominently in modern
microgrid systems, particularly as rural electrification and energy
access programs fuel growth in the remote segment."
