• Distributed power refers to power generated at or near the point of use
  • Distributed power systems stand in contrast to central power stations that supply electricity from a centralized location, often far from users. Central power systems do not supply mechanical power and are always stationary and land based
  • Although there is no standard definition, distributed power systems typically refer to systems < 100 MW
  • Chronic shortage of power and delays in construction of large-scale power plants
  • Constraints that inhibit the construction of transmission & distribution networks
  • Growth of natural gas networks and infrastructure
  • Governmental push to develop more remote areas
  • Lack of existing gas pipelines and the opportunity to develop small-scale “stranded” gas power projects
  • Less dependent on nationwide distribution and transmission network development (ability to bring power directly to the consumer)
  • Lower levels of capital intensity
  • Faster construction lead times (“Fast Power”)
  • Ability to monetise small and/or stranded gas reserves
  • More affordable power to remote regions will enable the region to boost its local energy consumption and development
