2011 Energy and Resources Research Review
- The total market for conventional retrofits including the energy retrofit technologies examined in this study—heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment, energy efficient lighting and lighting design, electricity sub-meters, and green roofs—is estimated to increase from $35.5 billion in 2010 to $60.7 billion in 2015 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.3%.
- The global alternative electrical power storage market in 2011 will be worth more than $325 million, including more than $236 million worth of electrochemical batteries. This market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.4% between 2011 and 2016 under a consensus scenario resulting in a $423 million global market in 2016, including $322 million worth of electrochemical batteries.
- Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) currently make up a small but noticeable part of the world PV market. The global market was valued at 1,201 megawatts in 2010 and is expected to increase at a 56% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach a capacity of 11,392 megawatts in 2015.
Energy sources and generation lie at the core of a complex network of strategic national interests. Fossil fuels have long been the dominant supply, and in the near-to-mid term, seem certain to remain so.
Around the margins of this network, two relatively new trends emerge. The geopolitical “job creation” power of clean tech is highly visible, and never more so than during its backlash, as in the failure of the government funded companies Solyndra and EverGreen Solar. Concurrently, a new mantra has emerged whereby the cheapest energy dollar to produce is the energy dollar saved. Throughout the topics covered below one can see both threads woven within all energy generation activities.
