Flexible Power Plants Powered by Medium Speed Generators (300-1200 rpm) Market to Witness Increase in Revenues by 2025

Flexible power plants powered by medium speed generators (300-1200 rpm) are capable of adapting to dynamic changing conditions. These generally include balancing supply and demand by the hour and minute, or deployment of new generation and transmission resources over a period of years. Flexible power plants mainly address the challenges of fluctuations and uncertainty in fuel prices, rapid deployment of variable generation plants, adoption of new technologies at the consumer level, and changes in system standards and policies.

Flexible power plants powered by medium speed generators (300 rpm to 1200 rpm) are gaining momentum as a part of the decreasing reliance on power generation from coal. Flexible power plants running on dual fuel and renewable engines are also gaining popularity. This is one of the ways of ensuring future investment stability and sustainability in electricity generation. Various capacity market auctions have been introduced where generators can earn additional revenue in return for providing capacity at times of system stress.

The global flexible power plant powered by medium speed generators market held a total volume of 5,779.6 MW in 2016 and is likely to rise to a volume of 7,901.5 by 2025 at a solid 4% CAGR.
