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.

Global Electric Insulator Market 2016-2020

Electric insulators are essential components of transmission and distribution (T&D) lines. They play a crucial role in preventing the flow of electric current down to the earth through supporting points between the transmission line and tower. There are three types of electric insulators based on the materials used for their production — ceramic, glass, and composite. Ceramic insulators have higher market penetration than other insulators. These insulators are generally used for high-voltage applications. Composite insulators are also gaining ground due to increased application in outdoor installations, predominantly by electric power utilities. They are lightweight and exhibit favorable features such as high mechanical strength and resistance power, consistent performance in harsh......

Global Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Market 2016-2020

An SOFC is a fuel cell that produces electricity through an electrochemical process. SOFCs offer low emissions, long-term stability, high efficiency, and fuel flexibility. The excellent fuel flexibility of the devices permit the use of safe, cheap, and readily available fuels such as hydrocarbons, natural gas, hydrogen, methanol, and syngas. SOFCs, however, require a high operating temperature, usually within the range of 500°C-1,000°C for the activation of the electrolyte. These high operating temperatures lead to mechanical and chemical compatibility issues and result in longer start-up times. The analysts forecast global SOFC market to grow at a CAGR of 9.78% during the period 2016-2020. Covered in this report The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of......

Global Low and Medium Capacity Gas Generator Market 2016-2020

Generators convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. The source of mechanical energy varies, from an internal combustion engine, a hand crank to compressed air and a reciprocating steam engine. An internal combustion engine uses either diesel, gasoline, propane gas, or natural gas to produce mechanical energy, which is transformed into electrical energy with the help of a generator assembly. Generators are designed to provide temporary AC or DC power. They serve as a source of backup or emergency power for residential, commercial, and industrial applications. A fuel engine powers a typical generator. The analysts forecast global low and medium capacity gas generator market to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% during the period 2016-2020.
