Small Wind Power Market | Technological Developments, Growing Demand, Carbon Reduction Agreements and others conspire to drive a the Market Growth

Small Wind Power Market
Global Small Wind Power Market by Grid Connectivity (On-Grid and Off-Grid), By Axis (Horizontal Axis and Vertical Axis) by Region (Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa) – Global Forecast to 2023

Market Scenario:

Small Wind Turbines Power Systems range from less than 1000 Watt to 10 kW and power remote or off-grid applications. The Global Small Wind Power Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.88 % during the forecast period of 2016 to 2023.


Simplicity of construction, excellent safety records, growing functionality such as auto-shut down in case of discrepancies in operation parameters, developments in complimentary technologies such as energy storage devices, lightweight materials, and quieter turbines with a noise level of 50 dB for a 10 kW turbine are the prime drivers of the market. Regulatory factors such as Government support for renewable energy including compulsory acquisition agreements are fueling the market.

Economic drivers include alternative to large investments needed to serve energy demands from inaccessible regions such as islands, competitive as compared to solar PV or bio-fuel, growing demand for clean renewable energy, lower installation and maintenance cost than large turbines and others. Technological development especially targeting efficiency is the smartest strategy adopted by key players. For example, the EO25 wind turbine of Eocycle Technologies Inc. provides a 65 % increase in energy production over the previous models.


Technical constraints such as dependence on minimum average wind speeds, variability of output owing to wind speeds fluctuations, lack of wind speed and distribution profiles, power reducing effects of large objects in the vicinity such as buildings, trees and others are hampering the market.  The high dependence on installation sites and wind speed, reduction of serenity of sites, restrictions on turbines installation and permit in many countries, safety and installation requirements, bird deaths due to turbine blades, and others are other restraints constraining the market.

Economic constraints include the higher cost per kW energy as compared to large turbines, and tariffs variations in countries.
