The institutional segment in the U.S. combined heat and power system for data center market is expected to gain 10 BPS during the assessment period. This segment is expected to be valued at close to US$ 150 Mn by 2024 end and is estimated to expand at a CAGR of 3.4 % in terms of value over the forecast period. The institutional segment is expected to be the most attractive segment with respect to market share index and CAGR index. Colleges/universities, general government offices, military/national security, miscellaneous education, schools and space research and technology centers have been included in the institutional segment. Colleges/universities are estimated to account for a major revenue share in the institutional segment in the U.S combined heat and power system for data center market.

In terms of market attractive analysis, the institutional segment is expected to be rated close to 5.0 on the basis of attractiveness index over the forecast period. This indicates an inclination towards high growth high value during the period 2016 – 2024.

Increasing preference for combined heat and power systems by end users likely to fuel the market

The provisions given under the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 (PURPA) legalized the sale of non-utility-generated electricity to the grid, which helps increase the usage of combined heat and power systems in all sectors. The use of combined heat and power systems, further advanced by provisions in the Energy Policy Act of 1992 and Clean Air Act, offer cost-effective greenhouse gas emission reduction. An increasing preference for combined heat and power systems by end users over conventional power generation systems and lower natural gas prices further fuels the U.S. combined heat and power system for data center market.

Considerable economic recovery and relatively lower natural gas prices is another factor which is creating a robust development in the U.S combined heat and power system for data center market. The continuous fall in the prices of natural gas has propelled the end users in the institutional segment towards the use of combined heat and power systems as natural gas.  Expanded tax incentives for combined heat and power are driving the growth of the U.S. combined heat and power system for data center market. Combined heat and power systems that are up to 50 MW in capacity and that exceed 60% energy efficiency are eligible for incentives, subject to certain limitations and reductions for large systems. This tax incentive policy is attracting various institutional organizations across the U.S to adopt combined heat and power systems.
