According to Navigant Research, global telecom network providers will install nearly 113.5GW of new distributed generation and energy storage capacity between 2018 and 2027.
Telcos around the world are rapidly building wireless infrastructure to meet consumer demands and provide services.
With an increasing emphasis on reliability, distributed generation and energy storage technologies are logical solutions to ensure the continuous operation of telecom networks, regardless of location or external factors.
Emerging markets of Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and Latin America are expected to be the fastest-growing
Alex Eller, senior research analyst with Navigant Research, said: “Telecom networks are increasingly providing services considered essential to consumers and thus need to be reliably provided, especially in cases of disaster or emergency.
"Moderate growth in new DG and ES capacity for telecom infrastructure will likely continue, despite high growth pockets for certain regions and technologies.”
