Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Renewable Distributed Energy Generation (RDEG) Technologies Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The Global Renewable Distributed Energy Generation Technologies market will grow at a CAGR of 8.2 percent over the period 2013-2018.
Renewable distributed energy generation includes small-scale renewable generation technologies such as solar PV, small wind, waste to energy, stationary fuel cell, micro CHP, and micro hydro. The capacity of these distributed renewable plants is very low compared to higher capacity renewable plants. Also, distributed solar PV capacity may vary depending upon the type and location of PV plants. The report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the high implementation cost. The installation of these technologies endures a high cost as the industry is still in the initial growth phase. Hence, various vendors and end-users are reluctant to adopt this technology as it leads to slower return and this will inhibit the growth of the market during the forecast period.
The Global Renewable Distributed Energy Generation Technologies market can be segmented into three technologies: Solar PV, Small Wind, and Others. Key Vendors
