The future growth in renewable energy generation will be driven by a number of factors. These factors include the rate of technological improvement and innovations, manufacturing scale economies, government incentives and regulations and the cost of competing electricity generation methods.
A series of accelerating trends give a positive directional indication for the renewable energy industry, including:
Significant reduction in the cost of clean energy technologies.
Improved capacity factors and output efficiency of renewable generation resources, driven by technological advances.
Renewable electrical generation sources increasingly located at a customer’s point of delivery because it is less expensive than the utility company alternative.
Increased utility company cost structure associated with the replacement of aging conventional power generation facilities and transmission and distribution charges.
Energy consumers’ desire to lock in predictable long- term energy cost combined with renewable energy’s ability to avoid the risks of price volatility and market disruptions associated with conventional fuel sources.
According to the lnternational Energy Agency (IEA), global energy consumption is expected to increase by 28% from 2015 to 2040 with renewables, the fastest-growing source of energy for power generation, surpassing generation from coal by 2040. “Non-hydropower renewables are expected to account for 15% of total world generation in 2040.”
Renewable energy or ‘clean energy’ is the way forward. These sustainable resources are present and are not going anywhere. Fossil fuels will run out eventually and it’s destroying our environment in the process. We can harness these renewable power sources from the world around us. There has been a steady increase in wind turbines, electric cars and solar panels worldwide, but more has to be done towards harnessing clean, renewable energy sources. Here is our key main focus to improve the world we live in.
There is a growing demand for energy worldwide, the market energy storage has witnessed a high increase in recent years. Devices that can store energy for usage at a later time have developed rapidly to meet the rising requirements for energy. Companies and governments worldwide are facilitating the growth of energy storage devices to do so more effectively and efficiently.
Increased penetration of low-carbon technologies, distributed generation and greater intermittency in the energy mix are causing higher peak demands. Thermal and voltage constraints and less predictable load and generation cycles are all creating the need for a solution that provides stability and reliability to fluctuating energy supply. Energy storage is the complementary technology that works alongside renewables to meet these challenges.
