Modern economies are depending on a reliable source of energy i.e. electricity. The peak demand for electricity is owing to enormous industrial and commercial development. Recently, the variability in supply and demand is causing a setback for power plant operators. Flexible power plants are essential in order to modify the power plant according to the current scenario to shift from one source of energy to another. Power plant operators are emphasizing on upgrading their facilities by integrating its existing infrastructure with a renewable source of energy. The deployment of this system offers higher flexibility to use available resources to generate electricity. Thus, many companies and operators are concentrating on increasing their power plant flexibility to meet the variable demand which increases the potential development of flexible power plant market.
The flexible power plant is classified on the basis of fuel type i.e. heavy diesel oil, light diesel oil, LNG, dual fuel, renewable energy, and others. On the basis of plant size, the flexible power plant can be segmented as up to 100MW, 101MW to 500MW and above 500MW. On the basis of end user, the global flexible power plant market is categorized into utilities, independent power producers, mining and others.

Many power plant operators are upgrading their facility to cope up with variable electricity demand and balance the supply-demand ratio which is expected to enhance the demand for flexible power plants. Also, a flexible power plant can be coupled to renewable energy sources which help to reduce carbon footprint. The flexible power plants are very effective in the transmission and distribution of electricity according to the requirement which reduces the maintenance and operation cost of the grid.
The complications involved in installation and operation inhibits the growth of the flexible power plant. Also, expensive machinery and technology increase the overall operational cost of the system acts as a restraining factor to the growth of the flexible power plant market.
The leading companies in the flexible power plant market are Yanmar Co., Ltd, MAN Diesel & Turbo, Wartsila Corporation, Cummins, Daihatsi Mfg. Co., Ltd., Kohler Co., Ltd., Beta Marine Ltd., COELMO, Kirloskar Oil Engines Ltd., DOOSAN Engines, Siemens AG, Alstom Power, Eastern Generation LLC., and Contour Global.
