“Wind is the most widely installed renewable energy generation technology”

In terms of renewable energy installation, by technology, wind is the most widely used renewable energy source, followed by solar, bio energy, and geothermal. China alone added approximately 30,500 MW of capacity to its wind energy program in 2015. It terms of adoption rate, solar is being widely adopted and deems to be a promising technology in the near future. In 2015, China surpassed Germany to become the largest installer of Solar Photovoltaics (PV). As of 2015, the U.S. had the largest capacity of geothermal and bio energy installation.

“North America and Europe have strict mandates for renewable energy technology adoption”

Countries in North America, especially the U.S., and some major countries in Europe, particularly the ones belonging to the EU such as Germany and France have strict mandates for renewable energy technology adoption. Meanwhile, certain countries in the Asia-Pacific region such as China, India, and Japan are also actively involved in meeting the renewable energy targets. These mandates or targets can be mainly observed in developed countries. The developing countries are also trying to cope with the developed ones by implementing renewable energy policies to reduce carbon emissions. Incentives such as feed-in tariff, tax credit, net metering, among others are provided by the government to boost renewable energy technology adoption.

“Organizations present in the renewable energy value chain”

Some of the leading organizations present in the renewable energy value chain include Ministry of Environment, Energy and the Sea (France), Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (India), Ontario Power Authority (Canada), Office of Gas & Electricity Markets, U.K. Government (U.K.), Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (Japan), Dominion Virginia Power (U.S.), Tennessee Valley Authority (U.S.), Los Angeles Department of Water & Power (U.S.), Orcas Power & Light (U.S.), Green Mountain Power (U.S.), and Eugene Water & Electric Board (U.S.), among others.

Research Methodology

This research study involved extensive usage of secondary sources, related research publications, and Government websites (such as EIA, and IRENA, among others) to identify and collect information useful for this technical, market-oriented, and commercial study of renewable energy. The points mentioned below explain the research methodology applied in making this report.

Major countries implementing renewable energy feed-in tariff policy have been identified in each region. In case of the U.S., state-wise data has been gathered
Primary and secondary research has been conducted to determine the renewable energy installation across various countries for different technologies from 2011 to 2015
Key renewable energy projects have been identified in terms of major technologies
Based on all the gathered data, an analysis has been done to identify the best performing or promising technologies in respective countries

Speak to Analyst:

The stakeholders included in this report are as follows:
