It's interesting to see that the growth in the US Microgrid market is being led by the military and therefore by default benefiting from direct government investment. 

While in Europe no nation has anywhere near the military spend of the US, it is interesting to contemplate what positive effects direct European government investment into Microgrid infrastructure assets could have on market development...

Investment into government funded projects that are commercially 'sensible' which benefit the citizens/tax payer and also help a growing industry seems like a good way to spend money... Better for sure than complex incentives, which often cause a false market and that get pushed/ pulled/dropped by ever changing government policies.
