We’re pleased to announce that in the May release of Power BI Desktop you can now define incremental refresh policies for your models.
At present these only apply once the model is published to a Premium workspace in the Power BI service; we’ll be bringing it to all Pro users in the future.
You can read more about it in our blog here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#incrementalRefresh
We’re going to leave this idea open for now, so please give us your feedback while we’re in this preview phase!Deepak Agrawal commented
It is so surprising that the most critical functionality for any organization i.e. Incremental Data Load is not available in Power BI and soon we will be celebrating 3 year anniversary of this idea.

This is a must in order to make data models more efficient.
