Increasing demand of electricity and environmental concerns has put the pressure on countries to increase the focus on renewable energy. Governments support in terms of favorable policies and incentives, and advantages over other renewable energies are continuously increasing the production capacity of biofuels worldwide.
Waste-to-energy (WtE) is the process wherein waste is treated to generate energy. This report looks at the WtE current and emerging technologies, key players in the market and the commercialization of such technologies.
The growing demand for energy is expected to exhaust the world’s crude oil reserves in another 40 years. The market price of crude oil reached $145 per barrel in the third quarter of 2008. Though the cost per barrel was around $60 in 2009, it is expected to rise in the next few years. These factors and fluctuating costs have created the need for other resources to meet the growing demand for fuel oil.
Global Wind Turbine Market, a rapidly growing market segment of global energy, has recorded double digit annual growth in past ten years and the market is expected to maintain this growth till 2015 by reinstalling and addition of new generation turbines as well as increasing the size and efficiency of the turbines.
Geothermal energy is a renewable source of energy derived from the earth’s crust. The heat available underneath is called as geothermal heat, which is utilized to generate power by drilling wells and employing various technologies such as dry steam, flash steam, and binary cycle. Another major utilization of geothermal heat is its direct use in space heating, aquaculture, horticulture, swimming pools, and spa treatments. These two applications form the geothermal energy industry and are the focus areas of interest in the report.
