Global Cellulosic Ethanol Market 2014-2018

Ethanol that is produced by converting sugar in cellulose is particularly known as cellulosic ethanol. It is produced from lignocellulose available in cellulosic materials such as wood and grass. Ethanol is the most commonly commended alternative or additive for gasoline and is produced through the fermentation process of cellulosic feedstock. It is also gaining much attention because its feedstock can be grown anywhere and also can be sourced from agricultural waste residues. It provides a greener alternative to corn ethanol along with using feedstock that does not take advantage of food meant for human consumption. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Cellulosic Ethanol market to grow at a CAGR of 53.3 percent over the period 2013-2018. Covered in this Report In terms of fee......

Global Hydropower Plant Construction Market 2014-2018

Hydropower is one of the most efficient source of renewable energy, where power is derived from the energy of flowing water moving from higher to lower elevation. The kinetic energy of the flowing water helps in generating electricity. Dams and reservoirs are constructed for storing water. The water from the reservoir is then released to run the turbine, which in turn activates the generator to produce electricity. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Hydropower Construction Market to grow at a CAGR of 2.17 percent over the period 2013-2018. Covered in this Report This report presents the Global Hydro Power Plant Construction market scenario and its growth prospects. The market size has been calculated based on the cost generated by the construction of the hydro power plant. T......

Solar Thermal Market in Europe 2014-2018

Solar thermal energy utilizes solar energy to produce low-cost, eco-friendly thermal energy. The energy can be used to boil water or other fluids, and also power solar cooling systems. Solar thermal technology differs from solar PV, which generates electricity rather than heat. Solar thermal energy generation system captures solar rays through optical concentration. Optical concentration is the arrangement of mirrors or lenses in such a way that it generates high temperature by concentrating sunlight to a small area. This high temperature is used to turn water into steam that is used to rotate turbines which generate electricity. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Solar Thermal market in Europe to grow at a CAGR of 18.2 percent over the period 2013-2018. Covered in this Report The ......

Global Solar PV Market 2014-2018

Solar PV is the method of generating electricity through the conversion of solar radiation using semiconductors that exhibit PV effect. PV power generation uses solar panels composed of a number of solar cells containing a PV material. Materials presently used for PV include monocrystalline silicon, polycrystalline silicon, amorphous silicon, cadmium telluride, and copper indium gallium selenide/sulfide. The conventional way of power generation through fossil fuels is continuously depleting, and it also causes environmental hazards. As a result, the eco-friendly renewable methods of power generation such as solar PV have become popular over the last decade. Solar PV power is generated by the monocrystalline silicon method, which is the most efficient and less expensive. Solar PV power is a......
