Another major trend affecting the paralleling switchgear market is an increasing focus on microgrid deployment and grid resiliency. Paralleling switchgear plays a major role in enabling microgrids creation and management by allowing distributed energy resources, backup power sources, grid connected operations to be integrated seamlessly. With every growing demand for resilient power solutions, paralleling switch gear is emerging as one of key components used for developing microgrid infrastructures that offer flexibility and controls on source of energy both in grid-connected mode or islanded mode.

The shift towards renewable energy sources influences the development of paralleling switchgears especially when solar and wind powers are integrated into electricity grids. The smooth interconnection of renewable energies with existing distributed generation system requires appropriate synchronising using parallel switching gears technology. These factors are closely linked to clean energy services that have become popular recently making it necessary to install advanced parallel switches geared at decentralizing production activities.

Energy storage integration has been an emerging trend in paralleling switchgear market. As more players adopt these technologies, they use parallel switches gears to facilitate easy incorporation of stored electrical power into a whole electric grid network for delivery purposes. Herein lies particular importance where such storage serves purposes like peak shaving, grid stabilization or emergency back-up. Parallel switching gear ensures that generators work together with storages thereby optimizing the use of stored energy as needed relative to the grid status and demand too.
