Microturbine shipments showed marked growth in 2000, posting a 300-percent increase from 1999, according to the Madison, Wis.-based energy market research firm, Primen.

"The surge in shipments last year demonstrates that the industry is leaving the research and development phase and entering true commercial markets," says Nicholas Lenssen, Primen's senior director of distributed generation. "This may signal that the long-anticipated rapid growth spurt for microturbines has arrived, though uncertainty remains over just how big—and fast—the industry will eventually become."

In terms of total electrical generating capacity, shipments increased 400 percent from 1999 to 2000, with the average shipment rising from 36 kilowatts to 45 kilowatts.
