NEW YORK, July 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A comprehensive analysis of the infrastructure of all sectors. Demand is the sum of new plant which is added to existing capacity and replacements for retirements of obsolete and aged assets. Although installed capacity has risen steadily each year, from 3.5 GW in 1900 to 6,228 GW in 2015 the generating sector will have seen three peaks of demand and two troughs by the end of this period. The transmission and distribution networks in various countries have been constructed over different periods of time and this has bearing on the equipment replacement cycles and the patterns of demand. Demand for generating capacity varies in large cycles, but demand for transmission and distribution plant has been more even, with smaller cycles. Coal capacity will maintain its momentum in China, and it will accelerate in India and South East Asia. The Chinese investment will include replacement of obsolete plant with supercritical plants. There will be some investment in coal in Europe and the US but much of this will be for upgrading and replacement of old plant. Thereoprt contains simialr commentary about all energy sources.Generating capacity and demand MW for coal, oil, gas, nuclear, hydro, wind, solar thermal, solar PV, biomass, MSW & waste, geothermal, marine/ocean, T&D, transmission lines km, distribution lines km is provided from 1990 to 2020.
