“Renewable energy sources have had a strong decade of growth,” writes analyst Tribhuvan Pratap Singh. “In 2009, they contributed about 10% of global primary fuel supplies. However, the market is likely to be more challenging in the years ahead. The wind power industry in particular will be challenged to find ways to lower prices, while solar power, with its much larger customer and manufacturing base, will be able to respond more quickly, although declining prices and margins will be difficult for suppliers.

The Role of Government in the Renewable Energy Market

Efforts to reduce or minimize reliance on conventional energy resources such as oil, natural gas and coal due to growing environmental hazards are expected to remain a key driving factor for the global market. In addition, governmental support in the form of tax benefits and financial incentives in the U.S., Germany, Iceland, France, the U.K., China and India is expected to drive production of renewable energy.
