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 Nuclear Decommissioning Market 2016-2020

Market overview of the nuclear decommissioning market The research analyst predicts the global nuclear decommissioning market to grow at a CAGR over 2% during the forecast period. Fatal accidents such as the Chernobyl and Fukushima incidents have propelled the growth of this market. This has resulted in an increase in the decommissioning of nuclear plants across the globe. For instance, during 2011, Germany decided to phase out all its operating nuclear plants from its power mix by the end of 2022, which in turn augments the market growth. The difficulty in disposal of radioactive nuclear waste is another factor driving this market's growth. For instance, nearly 27 tons of nuclear waste is generated from a 1,000-MW nuclear reactor every year. This radioactive waste generates a large amou......

Global Genset Battery Market 2016-2020

Growing urbanization and industrialization have resulted in high demand for power. Industries are rapidly adopting gensets to ensure continuous supply of electric power to facilitate smooth business operations. Usually, the start function of a genset is battery operated. An installed battery charger keeps the battery charged by ensuring the supply of precise float voltage. If the float voltage is low, the battery will remain undercharged. If it is high, then there is a possibility of shortened battery life. In order to function effectively, genset batteries must have higher power density, long service life quick recharge capability, and low rate of self-discharge. These attributes allow the crank power to start gensets at lower temperatures. Vendors worldwide are manufacturing batteries......

Global Solar Microinverter Market 2016-2020

Solar microinverters are small devices installed on solar panels that convert the DC output of a photovoltaic (PV) panel into AC. These inverters use maximum power point tracking (MPPT) to get maximum power from the PV array. The function of a microinverter is similar to a central or string inverter. In a string inverter, the PV modules are connected in strings and then wired to a central inverter. A microinverter, however, does not generate power unless connected to the grid. It converts AC to DC at each PV module, allowing the output of PV module to be unaffected by other modules. Therefore, partial shading, debris, and snow lines on any one module do not disproportionately affect the output. Solar microinverters enable maximum power, design flexibility, and enhanced safety, addres......
