Decentralized Electricity Generation Market – With the increasing installation of smart grids and the rising number of electricity generation resources, the power generation industry has been undergoing a significant change over the recent past. The modification in the grid structure, which permits decentralization of electricity generation, is acting as the main driving force behind the substantial growth of the global decentralized electricity generation market.


Retail Electricity Market – The global retail electricity market is expected to witness a progressive growth throughout the forecast period. The research study offers an in-depth analysis of the global retail electricity market provides a detailed analysis, offering insights into the key factors that are expected to encourage the growth of the overall market in the near future. The product portfolio, technological advancements, primary applications, key regional segments, and the competitive landscape of the global retail electricity market have been discussed at length in the scope of the research study.


Booster Compressor Market – The pressure can be maintained for limited period of time and cannot be used for regular or continuous operations. The compression of gas or air increases the temperature of the system. Most of the heat is carried away by the compressed gas, while the compressor components get heated with the contact of hot air. Water jackets or external fins are provided to reduce the temperature of booster compressor.


Variable Renewable Energy Market – Growing concerns about the environment and rising usage of clean energy substitutes are likely to be key factors driving the global variable renewable energy market during the forecast period. Electricity rates are inherently volatile. They fluctuate monthly, annually, and depending on season. Over the last decade, electricity prices have risen greatly and they are poised to increase even more during the forecast period. This, in turn, is projected to augment the demand for use of variable renewable energy in the near future.
