Report Description

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 Hydropower market will grow at a CAGR of 4.35 percent over the period 2013-2018.

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 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 Hydro-pumped Storage Plants Market 2014-2018

Hydro-pumped Storage is an altered use of conventional hydropower technology to store and manage energy. Hydro pumped storage projects store electricity by circulating water between an upper and lower reservoir. The electric energy is converted to potential energy and stored in the form of water at an upper elevation. Pumping the water uphill for temporary storage recharges the battery and during periods of high electricity demand the stored water is released back through the turbines and converted back to electricity like a conventional hydropower station. Current pumped storage cycle efficiencies exceed 80 percent comparing favourably to other energy storage technologies and thermal technologies which have comparatively lower efficiency. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Hydro-......
