Gensets Market in India 2016-2020

Electricity is one of the major requirements for industrial, commercial, infrastructural, and residential growth of any country. The availability of uninterrupted power supply is necessary to fuel the growth of every industry, be it large-scale or small-scale, education, manufacturing, or healthcare. Low fuel availability of electricity is one of the major concerns faced by Indian industries. Coal supply by Coal India is restricted to about 65% of the actual coal requirement by coal-based thermal plants. This has led to increased dependence on imported coal, which in turn has resulted in increased power generation costs due to limited fuel availability. Increased operational inefficiencies and outstanding debts have led to poor financial health of state electricity distribution companie......

Global Solar Diesel Hybrid Power Systems Market 2016-2020

Off-grid power generation systems are typically used when there is a lack of capital constraints or the geographical landscape makes it difficult to have a grid connection. Conventionally, the off-grid area is powered using fossil fuel generators, but environmental concerns and its sustainability in terms of cost, in the long run, has created the need for alternate solutions. A hybrid system that is a combination of two or more power sources such as renewables and diesel generators is an attractive option. The system harnesses the abundance of renewable sources that are freely available to generate electricity, and when combined with a diesel generator, it displaces the fuel consumption. Thus, it reduces the cost and the emission related to diesel power generation. The hybrid system can al......
