Global Microgrid Market 2015-2019

A microgrid is a type of power grid, which is much smaller than the conventional centralized electrical grid. It is localized and functions autonomously or in a hybrid mode with the conventional grid. Microgrids produce, distribute, and control the flow of energy to consumers; however, all these activities are implemented locally or in integration with the traditional grid. Microgrids are used during power failures in the central grid system as they can operate independently by isolating their generation loads. Moreover, developers and owners of microgrids sell the excess power to utility companies. The analysts forecast Global Microgrid market to grow at a CAGR of 18.72 percent in terms of revenue and at 17.29 percent in terms of microgrid installed capacity over the period 2014-2019. ......

Fuel Cell Market in North America 2015-2019

Fuel cells convert chemical energy into electrical energy through an electromechanical reaction. They are similar to batteries. A fuel cell consists of two electrodes, anode (positive) and cathode (negative), and an electrolyte that carry electrically charged elements from one electrode to another. A catalyst is required in the fuel cell, which speeds up the reaction taking place in the electrodes. Fuel cells create little pollution, because they use hydrogen as fuel. The hydrogen combines with oxygen to form water, which is a harmless by-product. This pollution reduction is one of the major reasons for the increased growth of the North America Fuel Cell market. Various fuels that can be used in a fuel cell are methanol, biogas, hydrogen, natural gas, and hydrocarbons. The analysts fore......

Li-ion Battery Market in Japan 2015-2019

A Li-ion battery is a rechargeable battery with the highest electrochemical potential. A positive terminal, a negative terminal, and an electrolyte between the terminals constitute the main parts of the battery. The basic principle of working of Li-ion batteries is to generate power when ions move from a negatively charged anode to the positively charged cathode. When the battery discharges, the movement of ions from the anode to the cathode releases energy. On the other hand, during charging, electricity from the adapter forces the ions to return to the anode in the battery. Once the adapter is removed, this cycle starts again. With time, the charge hold capacity of a Li-ion battery deteriorates because of lack of movement of ions, which are trapped in the anode. Some benefits of using Li......

Li-ion Battery Market for AEVs in Japan 2015-2019

A li-ion battery is used as a power source in AEVs. In HEVs, it is used as an alternative source of power, and in BEVs and PHEVs, it is used as primary sources of power. BEVs and PHEVs use an electric motor for the engine propulsion, which is powered by a li-ion battery. The application of li-ion battery is high in BEVs and PHEVs, because of its high energy density and long life span compared to other available rechargeable batteries. HEVs use both IC engine and electric motor for propulsion. The use of two fuel systems makes HEVs expensive, efficient, and preferred choice among end-users. In addition, the use of battery-operated vehicles helps to reduce carbon emissions and dependence on other fossil fuels. The battery used in AEVs is automatically charged during the transportation throug......

Global Floating LNG Market 2015-2019

Floating LNG refers to a system in which a set of operations and processes are performed for the development of offshore-based natural gas reserves. Floating LNG systems are mainly used for the production, liquefaction, storage, and transfer of LNG from offshore gas reserves to onshore areas. A floating LNG facility produces LNG directly on the offshore floating system, which undergoes a different process, and is stored in vessels or tanks and is finally transported to onshore. The entire value chain of floating LNG system is shorter than the common onshore LNG system. All the equipment, facilities, and other processes in a floating system take place in a single enclosed structure, thereby using just one-third of the space required by normal LNG system. Therefore, the use of floating LNG s......

Global Unconventional Gas Market 2015-2019

Unconventional gas is a type of natural gas resource trapped in coal beds, shale blocks, and tight sands. This gas resource is different from conventional sources in terms of reservoirs, geographical areas, and accumulation of natural gas. For the extraction of unconventional gas, different techniques are applied depending on the field and type of gas extracted. One common method is hydraulic fracturing, where a hole is drilled into the rock and large amounts of water are injected at high pressure along with sand and other chemicals to create cracks in the rock. The cracks, when opened, will free the trapped gas, allowing it to flow to the wellhead. The analysts forecast Global Unconventional Gas market to grow at a CAGR of 5.4 percent over the period 2014-2019. Covered in this Repor......
