Shale oil is an unconventional type of oil produced from oil shale formations. It is also known as kerogen oil or oil shale oil . The extraction of shale oil is an industrial process that is generally undertaken above ground by mining in oil shale field and then the output is treated in a facility to obtain the desired product. Heating or fracturing is also used to extract shale oil when the source shale field is beneath the earth’s crust.

Global Stationary Lead-Acid (SLA) Battery Market 2015-2019

Lead-acid batteries are rechargeable batteries, which contain lead electrodes with diluted sulphuric acid that acts as an electrolyte. Lead-acid batteries used for stationary applications are known as SLA batteries. Each cell in a typical lead-acid battery generates approximately 2 volts. Although SLA batteries have very low energy-to-weight and energy-to-volume ratios, they have the ability to supply high surge current (the maximum input current drawn by an electrical device, when turned on). This feature of SLA batteries combined with the cost competency effectiveness is driving the growth of the SLA Battery market. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global SLA Battery market to grow at a CAGR of 6.9 percent over the period 2014-2019. Covered in this Report The Global SLA Battery......

Global Power Rental Market 2015-2019

Over the past decade, the demand for power has been increasing worldwide. However, meeting the world's growing power need has become a critical challenge. Increased demand for power is mainly driven by factors such as rising population, growing income of people, and rapid industrialization and urbanization. As a result of low investments in the Power sector, governments and utility providers are unable to meet the huge demand for energy. The demand-supply gap of power in developing countries provides an opportunity for temporary power systems. These power systems are useful at the time when the demand for electricity is at its peak, when there is need for emergency power backup, and when there is a lack of power generation infrastructure. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Power R......
