High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) Transmission Market 2014-2024

High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) Transmission Market 2014-2024

Visiongain calculates that the global High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission market will be worth $25.79bn in 2014. From a global perspective, capital expenditure on HVDC transmission will enjoy stability over the next 10 years. Regionally, spending is much more volatile; different trends, regulatory environments, stages of electrical grid development, political priorities and distributions of fossil and non-fossil fuel resources influence how much HVDC transmission will be authorised and constructed. Stronger HVDC markets include the Asian, European, and North American markets. Within the Asian market, China is by far the most dominant country, and its HVDC projects will underpin the entire HVDC transmission market.

Grid Scale Battery Storage Market Forecast 2014-2024

Grid Scale Battery Storage Market Forecast 2014-2024

The grid scale battery storage market is largely an emerging one, especially when compared to other energy storage systems. Most grid scale batteries are either too expensive or not yet fully tested and understood in a real-life environment - or both. However, pressed by high and rising renewable energy capacity brought online, an increasing number of governments around the world are considering adopting new regulation favouring the commissioning of grid scale storage systems, such as capacity payment mechanisms or mandatory targets for the installation of new storage capacity.

Utilities Infrastructure Security Market Forecast 2014-2024

Utilities Infrastructure Security Market Forecast 2014-2024

The security of utilities infrastructure has always been important for governments and operating authorities alike, particularly after the events of the early 21st century. Yet now more than ever, there is renewed emphasis for protection as a result of the way in which cyber security issues have come to dominate new security thinking and planning in this sector. Certainly, whereas before most utilities considered themselves unlikely to suffer major damage from anything except nature, in the present threat environment every essential service component, from the most physically secure nuclear facility, to local water distribution sites, is within reach of anonymous attack via computer networks. Fresh awareness of this vulnerability is currently enabling security growth in areas which previously had little motivation for additional security expenditure.

The Desalination Market Forecast 2014-2024

The Desalination Market Forecast 2014-2024

Desalination systems have long been an expensive solution to water scarcity issues whose commercialisation was limited to hydrocarbon-rich countries lacking natural water resources: in other words, to Middle East nations. The market landscape, however, has changed over the last 20 years. Decades of research and technological improvements have greatly increased the energy efficiency of thermal desalination plants, helping bring down operating costs. Meanwhile, membrane-based desalination has changed the economics of the sector radically, making desalination more affordable and less dependent on thermal energy sources.

The Energy Storage Technologies (EST) Market 2013-2023

The Energy Storage Technologies (EST) Market 2013-2023

Energy storage technologies (EST) are becoming increasingly important for improving the efficiency of electricity grid systems. With an ever larger share of power generation coming from intermittent renewable energy sources, rising commodity prices and escalating energy peak demand in high-growth economies, EST are under the spotlight as potential game changers in the management of power transmission and distribution. At present, only some EST are commercially viable; yet, visiongain expects the market to see exponential growth in the next ten years, led by technological, economic and political factors already in action.

The 20 Leading Companies in the Natural Gas Market 2013: Competitive Landscape Analysis

The 20 Leading Companies in the Natural Gas Market 2013: Competitive Landscape Analysis

The natural gas market is currently undergoing a period of rapid transition, marked by a significant boom in gas production. Technological advances such as directional well drilling and hydraulic fracturing have considerably increased gas production in North America, where abundant gas supplies have pushed down gas prices. Many companies operating in the region have seen strong growth in their gas output in recent years, though the continued low price of gas in North America is creating challenges for companies.

The High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) Transmission Market 2013-2023

The High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) Transmission Market 2013-2023

High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission is the method of choice for the subsea transmission of electricity, the connection of disparate AC grids and/or the movement of bulk amounts of electrical power over vast distances. In each of these three respects HVDC transmission is superior to its competitor HVAC (high voltage alternating current). Composed of the capital expenditure upon HVDC transmission, this market is due for steady, incremental growth over the next 5 years. Visiongain anticipates, nevertheless, that some regions of the world, such as South East Asia and Africa, have the potential to attract significant investment given opportune political and regulatory circumstances.

The Natural Gas Power Generation Market 2013-2023

The Natural Gas Power Generation Market 2013-2023

Natural gas is a relatively abundant commodity and is increasingly becoming more available through the growing international trade of LNG and pipeline gas. The advantages of natural gas, such as its lower environmental impact, higher efficiency and flexibility in power supply, are leading to increased demand for natural gas fired power infrastructure. Visiongain analysed over 375 under construction, planned and proposed gas power projects and forecasts that over 470GW of new capacity will be added globally in the next ten years.

The Grid Scale Battery Storage Market 2013-2023

The Grid Scale Battery Storage Market 2013-2023

The rising demand for electricity has led to an increasing demand for more flexible and efficient grid systems that can handle intermittent power generated by renewable sources such as solar and wind. This has given rise to governments and private companies investing in battery and other types of energy storage systems to provide backup sources which can time shift or provide energy arbitrage at times of low and high demand. The grid scale battery storage market is a fledging and vibrant market with vast potential for future growth.

The Waste-to-Energy Market 2013-2023

The Waste-to-Energy Market 2013-2023

Waste-to-energy (WtE) provides a win-win solution to urban consumer societies by effectively processing large municipal solid waste (MSW) volumes, while creating electricity and/or local heating. WtE however is expensive and cannot compete with low-cost landfill without incentives, therefore an increasing amount of governments are offering support to the industry or creating regulations to drive it forward.
