Green Energy Market

Green energy also referred to as clean energy, is usually derived from natural sources that are constantly replenished. Solar energy, wind energy, hydroelectric power, biomass energy, geothermal energy, tidal energy, and wave energy are different types of renewable energy. Solar energy is the radiant heat emitted from the sun, which is harnessed by using a wide range of technologies such as solar heating, photovoltaic cells, artificial photosynthesis, and others. In addition, it serves as an efficient renewable energy source and assists in mitigating greenhouse emissions.

The growth of the global green energy market is driven by a decrease in the price of solar modules and an increase in legislative & financial initiatives. The competition among manufacturers has increased significantly, owing to the development of photovoltaic-based power distribution systems. Moreover, the price of solar modules differs significantly in Europe and Asia-Pacific, as the market is demand-oriented. Reduction in profit of module manufacturers coupled with market acquisition stress influences the pricing policies of solar modules.

Furthermore, the fluctuating price of silver, which is a major raw material in solar modules, increases the demand for solar panel installations. Thus, a decrease in the prices of solar modules is expected to boost the demand for solar modules and photovoltaic (PV) installations which further escalates the growth of the global green energy market size. The abovementioned factors will provide ample opportunities for the development of green energy market forecast period.

However, various films and coating layers are applied during the production of solar cell technologies. The changes in atmospheric conditions such as extreme heat, cold, humidity, and ultraviolet radiations have reduced the efficiency of these technologies. This incurred more costs in production, which resulted in a decrease in the efficiency ratio. This factor acts as a major restraint of the solar energy sector which is further predicted to act as a restraint in the global green energy market.

However, the demand for solar energy has increased exponentially due to the decrease in the price of solar panels and the low cost of electricity produced using these panels. This trend is expected to indicate the necessity of market support programs in some regions, which is anticipated to hamper the market growth.

The development of photovoltaic (PV) storage systems is essential to increase the ability of PV systems to replace the existing conventional sources. The demand for storage grids is expected to increase in the coming years with an increase in demand for PV installations. The rise in the need for grid systems for residential applications further propels the demand for lithium ion-powered batteries for solar energy storage.

In addition, market-assisting programs and schemes are expected to play a significant role in boosting the demand for solar storage technologies. Development in solar energy storage technology is expected to highly impact the solar energy sector by creating lucrative avenues for investment in providing energy-efficient solar cells. Furthermore, an increase in battery applications for solar energy storage is expected to offer potential scope for green energy market expansion.
