HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / March 7, 2019 / Below are several alternative energy stocks leading the market. One trend to watch in the space is microgrid technology. From California to the Pacific Islands, microgrids are taking center-stage. Palau, a Pacific island nation and the 13th smallest country in the world, but has committed to building what would be the world's largest microgrid - 35MW of solar panels paired with 45 megawatt-hours of energy storage. This effort is part of the nation's goal to transition to 70% renewable energy by 2050, recognizing that islands are on the front lines of experiencing the effects of climate change and stand as ground zero for the global energy transition. Microgrids are one of the best solutions we have for the energy challenges that come along with natural disasters. With climate change increasing the frequency of these disasters, microgrids will be increasingly sought after by organizations that cannot afford to lose power. According to Markets and Markets "The microgrid market is expected to grow from USD 19.22 billion in 2017 to USD 39.10 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 11.97% during the forecast period." GTM Research forecasts $12.5 billion in microgrid investment within the United States over the next six years.
