Oil Exploration and Production Market in India 2014-2018

The Oil and Gas sector plays a significant role in the economic and political scenario of India. The high economic growth over the past few years, the increase in industrial development, and the growing population have created much concern for India's energy scenario. India accounts for only 0.5 percent of the oil and gas resources of the world while accounting for 15 percent of the world's population. This makes India heavily reliant on imports of crude oil and natural gas. India's crude oil production has not seen any substantial growth in the last 10 or more years, whereas its refining capacity has grown by more than 20 percent over the last five years. Oil consumption is growing at about 4.1 percent per year and natural gas consumption at 68 percent per year. TechNavio's analysts fo......

Global Clean Coal Technologies Market 2014-2018

Clean coal refers to the process of reducing carbon emissions and other harmful pollutants that arise from the burning of coal for power generation to the minimum possible level. SC, USC, and IGCC technologies are clean coal technologies that are widely used for setting up new-build coal-fired power plants. The more sophisticated the technology, the higher the steam pressure and temperature requirement is for operating the plant. As a result, the thermal efficiencies improve with the usage of more sophisticated technology. As well as these three technologies, CCS is also an upcoming technology, which is capable of reducing carbon emissions drastically by 80-90 percent. This technology is used in conjunction with SC, USC or IGCC plants. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Clean Coal......

Synchrophasors Market in the US 2014-2018

Synchrophasors use phasor measurement units (PMUs) as monitoring devices that measure current, instantaneous voltage, and frequency at specific locations on an electric grid. This provides the operators with a real-time picture of the grid system helping them to make decisions to prevent power outage. The measurements obtained by the synchrophasors are used to improve grid visualization, operational monitoring, power system control, stability monitoring, state estimation, and fault analysis. Each measurement taken by a synchrophasor is time-stamped according to a common time reference. This helps synchrophasors from different utilities to be combined and synchronized, which presents a comprehensive view of a regional interconnection. The data collected by synchrophasors thus determine the ......

Global Hydropower Market 2014-2018

Hydropower is the most mature, reliable and cost-effective renewable power generation technology where power is derived from the energy of water moving from higher to lower elevations. It is a proven, anticipated, and typically price-competitive technology. Hydropower has one of the best efficiencies of conversion of all known energy sources (water to wire 90 percent efficiency). Though it requires comparatively high initial investment, it has a long service life with very low operational and maintenance costs. The major hydropower project types are: Large Hydropower and Small Hydropower. There is no worldwide consensus on classification by project size (installed capacity, MW) due to varying development policies in different countries. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Hydropowe......

Global Solar Concentrated Photovoltaic Market 2014-2018

A solar CPV system concentrates sunlight on solar cells with the help of an optical device, increasing the efficiency of photovoltaic cells that convert energy from sunlight directly into electricity. The optics used concentrates the sunlight by a factor of 500 to 1,000 and focuses it on the solar cells, which are reduced to a small fraction of the CPV module. This helps in the cost-efficient use of highly efficient multi-junction solar cells. Solar CPV requires a high level of radiation concentration to increase its output and solar trackers help to monitor the sun's rays during the day so as to focus the sunlight falling over a huge area onto a small set of PV cells. Solar CPV is gaining competitiveness in areas with high direct normal irradiation (DNI). The solar CPV installations are i......
