CCBJ Vol VII No 07-09: Renewable Energy - Key Issues and Services Markets 2014


A complete review of market drivers, trends and competitor types in the global and U.S. renewable energy segments of the climate change industry, with a focus on wind and solar and on services. CCBJ estimates the global wind energy business at $129 billion and the global solar energy business at $180 billion in 2013, including equipment, power value and services. As recently as 2005 these figures were both on the order of $20 billion, so growth has been significant if not a bit inconsistent over the past decade. (Itemized tables in this edition provide yearly figures in each subcategory.)

The continued advance of wind and solar generation around the globe is welcome news but brings challenges to the grid and those who must manage the intermittency and possible waste of renewably generated power. Technology and service providers continue to find new niches in rapidly evolving markets, and power utilities and policymakers ponder alternate futures as policy and generation mix continues to scramble their traditional business models. This edition contains a review and data on U.S. and global wind and solar markets in 2013 into mid-2014, and expected activity in installations, planning & permitting, design and O&M.
