The global microgrid market is promptly flourishing as government and private sector willingly to support actively. Todays, many countries and government have encouraged installing renewable energy farms for example wind farms and solar farms etc., and huge research has started in various aspect of it at the university level. The energy market in the United States is the largest market which has already taken a clear lead and they have mainly focused on remote microgrid and military microgrid. In European Union region, microgrids have reached in mature technology to participate in utility grid. However, in Asia-Pacific and Far East region has huge potential to grow up renewable energy market in future due to emerging economies to overcome power shortages/power outages and low grid connectivity. This paper presents several distributed generation around the European Union region and we have tabled testbeds information together. It helps the researcher to visualize today's microgrid and insight perceiving the possible evolvement of future grid. The study has concluded emphasizing the remarkable findings and potential research areas that would enhance for microgrid facilities.
