http://www.reportlinker.com/p0306639/Competitive-Analysis-of-Conventional-and-Renewable-Energy-Sources-Opportunities-and-Cost-Analysis.html

Background:

According to this report "Competitive Analysis of Conventional and Renewable Energy Sources: Opportunities and Cost Analysis" - the global energy production capacity is expected to reach 5,696 GW by 2015. Despite the recent economic slowdown, energy demand is on rise in Asian and other developing economies due to high industrial growth and more usage of industrial good. Although, cost of generating electricity, easily availability of abundant raw materials and capacity factors have always encouraged the growth of conventional energy but due to environmental concerns, accelerating fuel prices and emission regulations like Kyoto protocol have accelerated the growth of renewable energy across the globe. As far as the cost of generating electricity is concerned, natural gas and coal costs less and in near future it is expected that the cost of generating electricity from renewable energy sources such as solar thermal and solar Photovoltaic would also decrease. In such a situation renewable energy will compete with conventional energy in terms of cost. Significant changes are taking place in the cost of generating electricity from the coal, Natural gas, Nuclear, Wind, Solar PV, and Solar Thermal. This unique report from Lucintel will provide you with valuable information, insights for trend and forecasts of different energy sources and levelised cost of energy of different energy sources. This report will save you hundreds of hours of your own personal research time and will significantly benefit you in expanding your business. In today's stringent economy, you need every advantage that you can find. .
