Complete Guide to the Renewable & Alternative Energy Industry From Plunkett Research 2018

HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. recently announced an important market research and competitive analysis report, Plunkett’s Renewable & Alternative Energy Industry Almanac, 2018 edition. A complete market research report, including forecasts and market estimates, technologies analysis and developments at innovative firms.

Analysts at BP report that non-hydroelectric renewable power consumption grew by a respectable 14.1% worldwide during 2016 (the latest year for which data is available).  Steady growth however does not mean that renewables account for a large amount of the world’s energy.  Instead, non-hydroelectric renewables as a percent of global electricity generation accounted for about 7.5% in 2016. Even at such levels, renewable energy sources continue to remain popular with wind power seeing rapid growth worldwide while solar power is enjoying significant technological innovation.  In addition, cleaner-burning fuels, fuel-efficient automobiles, as well as homes and buildings that utilize energy-efficient materials and controls are of great appeal to the large number of consumers worldwide who have developed a true interest in sustainability or in protecting the environment.
