Green Technologies and Global Markets
BCC Research predicts that the global market for energy-efficient technologies will grow at an aggregated compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.2% for the 5-year forecast period of 2010-2015, from $200 billion in 2010 to $311.7 billion by 2015, compared to $331 billion for renewable energy.
The scope of this report is intentionally scattered, looking at some very low-tech areas where energy efficiency gains are possible through scale of the markets and some high-tech sectors that are just now coming online. We cover non-renewable but energy efficient sources of electricity and heat, modern and older areas where conservation is badly needed and introductory efforts to rationalize the distribution of electricity. There is no shortage of reports on each of these in the marketplace. What is lacking, and what this report is intended to provide, is a global perspective that places each of these sources in a relevant context for decision makers in both the public and private sectors.
