Frost & Sullivan's Predictions for the Global Energy and Environment Market

  1. 1. What’s Hot in Energy and Environment Industry Participants Weigh In On Key Market Trends and Challenges November 2013
  2. 2. Contents Section Slide Number • Energy & Environment—Hot Topics and Why 3 • Mega Trends Across Energy—Top Point of Interest 6 • Energy & Environment—Top 10 Technologies and Markets to Watch For in 2020 15 Frost & Sullivan Story 19 2
  3. 3. Mega Trends and Macro Issues Smart as the New Green Changing O&G Dynamics Environmental Concerns Hot Topics—Factors Highlighting Importance of Topics Energy & Environment—Hot Topics and Why • A growing percentage of the global population will be living in cities and urban areas in the coming decades. Higher concentrations of larger populations are fraught with challenges: o Urban populations will be higher income, and the growing middle class will consume more goods, resources, energy, and water, and create more waste and pollution. o Increasing waste and pollution will drive awareness and the need for cleaner, more efficient energy and transportation. o Smart cities that can better use existing resources through improved monitoring, controls, and coordination of services and infrastructure can improve quality of life for residents and attract more businesses. • As top Mega Trends, urbanization and smart cities will drive changing market dynamics for energy and environment market participants. • Smart systems have been in place across the transmission & distribution (T&D) space and are now also moving into commercial and residential buildings. • The emergence of shale gas and shale oil in the oil and gas (O&G) space is also increasingly impacting the energy and environment sector. o Natural gas has replaced coal as the main fuel source for electricity in the United States. o China has abundant, though technically difficult to access, shale beds that, if tapped, could further increase the country's economic clout on the global stage. o Europe is looking at shale gas to increase domestic energy sources but also balancing that with environmental concerns. o Environmental concerns, highlighted by industry participants as a key area of interest, are an issue with shale extraction because they drive the potential for smart cities. o Frost & Sullivan covers the full ecosystem of energy and environment—from upstream O&G, to power generation, across the T&D grid, and into the building and waste streams—as well as the Mega Trends and Macro Issues that create new challenges and opportunities.
