Press Release

TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report - Global Small Wind Turbine Market 2014-2018

TechNavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Small Wind Turbine Market: Bergey Windpower Co. Inc., Entegrity Wind System Inc., Northern Power System Inc., XZERES Corp. , Ampair Energy, DyoTech, Endurance Wind Power, Evance Wind Turbines, Fortis Wind Energy, Gaia-Wind, Kestrel Wind Turbines, Polaris America, Raum Energy, Urban Green Energy , Windspire Energy

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “One of the major trends being witnessed in the Global Small Wind Turbine market is an opportunity to sell excess generated power to the main power grid and thereby offset costs. Many small commercial projects use small wind turbines for their power requirements during the lifespan of the project. During this time, the excess power that is generated can be sold to the main grid, enabling these companies to earn sizable revenue. To generate additional power, many operators are installing high wind turbines (increasing the length of the tower) to capture optimal wind energy”

According to the report, several factors drive the growth of the Global Small Wind Turbine market. Advances in the technology of small wind turbines are one of the most important growth drivers. Many vendors are investing heavily in R&D to reduce the size of the wind turbine's rotor. This will not only increase the efficiency of the turbine, but also reduce the noise generated from the turbine.

Further, the report states that the high initial investment that is required for small wind turbines poses a significant threat to market vendors. Small wind turbines require regular maintenance for proper functionality, which increases the cost for the operator or the vendor. Moreover, the cost of raw materials and the high manufacturing costs of other components increases the overall cost of installation.

The report also includes a discussion of the other vendors operating in this market. The other vendors in the market are

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 Smart Energy Meter Market 2015-2019

Smart energy meters are the next-generation meters that provide more precise and exact amount of electricity consumption. They are generally installed at households or in enterprise infrastructure to maintain detailed statistics about energy consumption. A smart energy meter works as an electrical meter that measures and provides feedback of the power consumed to the electricity supplier. It is also useful for customers as they too can monitor the amount of power used. This two-way communication capability is the most important feature which enables the parties involved (consumers and electricity suppliers) to keep track of real-time energy consumption. There are several other benefits of using smart energy meters. These meters send details of the energy used to the electricity suppliers, ......

Global Nuclear Decommissioning Market 2014-2018

Nuclear decommissioning is the process of dismantling a nuclear facility permanently. The nuclear decommissioning process commences once the owner decides to permanently close down the nuclear facility. It involves the removal of used nuclear fuel from the reactor, cleaning, dismantling, and disposing of all the radioactive components. The decommissioning process is completed when all radioactive wastes and components have been completely dismantled or decayed to a level such that the site can be safely reused for other purposes. Depending on different decommissioning strategies, this process can take decades. Globally, many nuclear reactors have been safely decommissioned. Nuclear decommissioning can be carried out in three ways: immediate dismantling, deferred dismantling, and entombment......
