Global Warming Concerns and Rising Energy Demand asserts High Attractiveness of Clean Technology Industry

Online PR News – 22-March-2010 – – Concern over rising environmental pollution and Green House Gases (GHGs) that result in global warming has been at the forefront of driving the clean technology industry. Global carbon dioxide, or CO2, emissions increased from 27.6 billion metric tons in 2004 to 30.3 billion metric tons in 2008. This increase was primarily due to the increased use of fossil fuels and rising energy demands. Global CO2 emissions are projected to reach 31.0 billion metric tons in 2010, 35.4 billion metric tons in 2020 and 40.4 billion metric tonnes in 2030 — an increase of 30% during 2010–2030. In addition, global energy consumption is expected to reach 13,780 Million Tons of Oil Equivalent (Mtoe) by 2020 and 16,265 Mtoe by 2030 — an increase of 42% by 2030 over 2009 levels. Rising global energy demand is giving way to the development of renewable energy and clean technology sources.

In 2009, the renewable energy generation sector accounted for 50% of the number of overall clean technology deals. The global renewable energy sector is composed of several distinct technologies that include solar, wind, geothermal, biopower and others. Political, economic and environmental factors coupled with energy security and independence concerns are driving the market demand for renewable energy. The volatile price of conventional energy sources and the high dependence of several countries on foreign energy sources are also contributing. Favorable government policies and subsidies for renewable energy generation are attracting investment flow into this area. GBI Research is confident of the enormous investment potential of renewable energy sources in the forecast period. Among all the clean technology sectors, agriculture reported the minimum number of investments. Industry experts, in their interviews with GBI Research, suggested that the solutions to mitigate the agricultural climate change footprint are available but that the methods to successfully implement them are yet to be discovered. The concerns for food security, unfavorable climatic conditions, rising populations and energy independence will promote clean technology investments.
