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.

Press Release

TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report - Global Hydropower Market 2014-2018

TechNavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in Global Hydropower Market: Eletrobras, BC Hydro, Hydro-Québec , Rus Hydro, China Yangtze Power Co., Ltd., Agder Energi AS, Duke Energy Corporation, Georgia Power Company, Ontario Power Generation Inc., Stat Kraft AS.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “Many international and regional vendors are investing in the Hydropower market (both large and small) because of benefits such as long-term profits and no fuel charges. Many companies are also investing in R&D to increase the efficiency and durability of turbines and generators. For instance, Alstom SA, one of the leading players in the Global Hydropower Generation and Manufacturing market, invested around US$8 million in a global technology center for hydropower products in Brazil in 2013. In addition, a building boom in mega hydropower plants is in progress in countries such as China and Brazil.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the increased electric power requirements worldwide. An increase in energy consumption has a positive influence on the demand for power, and this demand is only expected to rise during the remaining years of the forecast period.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is a requirement for high initial investment. Hydropower plants require a huge amount of initial investments compared to thermal, wind, solar, and other types of power plants.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.

Global SCR Systems for Coal-fired Plants Market 2014-2018

About Selective Catalytic Reduction System The Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system injects ammonia into the boiler flue gas and passes it through a catalyst bed where the ammonia and nitrogen oxide gas (NOx) react to form nitrogen and water vapor. In this process, the NOx reduction takes place as the flue gas passes through a catalyst chamber. Selective catalytic reduction is a post-combustion technology used in coal burning applications to reduce NOx emissions. SCR systems ultimately reduce flue gas NOx to N2 and H2O. This technology is the most efficient method of reducing NOx emissions in the coal fired power plants where in efficiencies of about 70 to 90 percent are required. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Selective Catalytic Reduction Systems for Coal Fired Plants m......
