NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
Biogas to Energy (Analyst version) - The World Market for Biogas Plants 2012/2013
The international biogas boom will continue in the years to come. The worldwide installed capacity will increase between 2012 and 2016 from 4,700 MWel to about 7,400 MWel – which is a growth of about 60 per cent in only five years. We furthermore expect the number of plants to increase from 9,700 to 13,500 plants.
The main reason for this growth is the support of renewable energy that is increasing throughout the world. More and more countries create the necessary framework conditions for a fast growth of the biogas industry. Europe will remain the world's most dynamic market.
This study is the third edition of the biogas plant market analysis by ecoprog GmbH and the Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy Technology UMSICHT. Amongst other actors, energy agencies, public authorities and associations as well as operators and plant manufacturers have been involved in this analysis.
This detailed investigation and current analysis of numbers, facts, estimations and trends of the worldwide market for biogas plants is of interest for producers, suppliers, operators, disposal companies, associations, research institutes and consulters.
The analyst version of the market study "Biogas to Energy 2012/2013" includes:
- A detailed analysis of the essential political, economic, managerial and technical trends for constructing and operating biogas plants.
- A concrete description of the current and future market volumes by countries, up to and including 2016, based on a transparent and comprehensible methodology.
- A project list for each country with new construction projects and projects that are planned or currently discussed.
- A description and analysis of the most important operators and manufacturers of biogas plants.
