Global Stationary Lead-Acid (SLA) Battery Market 2015-2019

Lead-acid batteries are rechargeable batteries, which contain lead electrodes with diluted sulphuric acid that acts as an electrolyte. Lead-acid batteries used for stationary applications are known as SLA batteries. Each cell in a typical lead-acid battery generates approximately 2 volts. Although SLA batteries have very low energy-to-weight and energy-to-volume ratios, they have the ability to supply high surge current (the maximum input current drawn by an electrical device, when turned on). This feature of SLA batteries combined with the cost competency effectiveness is driving the growth of the SLA Battery market. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global SLA Battery market to grow at a CAGR of 6.9 percent over the period 2014-2019. Covered in this Report The Global SLA Battery......

Grid Scale Energy Storage System in APAC Market 2015-2019

Grid energy storage is a technique used for the large-scale storage of electricity through a power grid. Such electricity storage is required when the amount of electricity generated is greater than the demand. The surplus electricity saved in energy storage systems is supplied to customers when the demand is higher than the generation. Grid storage is a mechanism of storing electricity during the off-peak period and supplying the stored electricity during the peak period. Grid scale energy storage systems helps during power shortages, power blackouts, or during high demand for power supply. These technologies mainly include pumped-hydro storage systems, advanced batteries, flywheel, and other evolving technologies such as CAES. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Grid Scale Energy Storag......

Global Power Rental Market 2015-2019

Over the past decade, the demand for power has been increasing worldwide. However, meeting the world's growing power need has become a critical challenge. Increased demand for power is mainly driven by factors such as rising population, growing income of people, and rapid industrialization and urbanization. As a result of low investments in the Power sector, governments and utility providers are unable to meet the huge demand for energy. The demand-supply gap of power in developing countries provides an opportunity for temporary power systems. These power systems are useful at the time when the demand for electricity is at its peak, when there is need for emergency power backup, and when there is a lack of power generation infrastructure. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Power R......

Smart Grid Equipment Market in Brazil 2015-2019

Smart Grid is the integration and implementation of communication, automation and IT systems with the traditional electrical grid with the ability to monitor and control power flows from points of generation to consumption and manage the load to match generation in real-time or near real-time. Smart grid increases the predictability, visibility and control of generation and demand, bringing flexibility to the whole system. This facilitates the integration of intermittent energy from renewable generation and peak load management, which helps reduce the costs of peak power. The transformation of electrical grids to smarter grids depends on various smart grid equipment. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Smart Grid Equipment market in Brazil to grow at a CAGR of 21.17 percent over the perio......

Renewable Energy Market in MEA 2015-2019

Renewable energy is defined as a source of power generation, which comes from naturally replenished resources such as hydro, wind, solar, biomass and geothermal. Renewable energy is used as an alternative source of power generation, hot water or space heating, in motor fuels as solar cells and for off-grid power generation. Since renewable energy resources are free and abundantly available in nature, the cost of power generation is less. Moreover, renewable energy mitigates carbon emission, reduces dependency on traditional hydrocarbon oil sources, and increases energy security. The importance of renewable energy sources is growing because of increased environmental concerns and rising prices of fossil fuels. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Renewable Energy market in MEA to grow at a ......
