Propane DG Market Assessment

The Propane Distributed Generation Market Assessment is an evaluation of the technologies, markets, and trends for propane-fueled distributed generation applications of less than 1 megawatt. The study estimated the market and propane volume potential for the different distributed generation market segments. The research provides the basis for the development of a commercialization plan to help the propane industry realize the potential market for propane-fueled distributed generation.
