Global Cogeneration Equipment Market: Snapshot
The global cogeneration equipment market is displaying steady growth due to the pressing need for efficient power generation techniques to meet the ever-increasing demand for electricity. Cogeneration involves generating electricity and heat simultaneously from a single fuel source such as natural gas and biomass. Cogeneration systems provide efficiency from 77% to 81% as compared to 46% efficiency of conventional systems and can reduce carbon emissions by up to 29% over conventional systems.
The depletion of fossil fuels has necessitated the adoption of alternate techniques for energy generation such as cogeneration. Furthermore, government initiatives for energy conservation and the need to address climatic changes have led to the adoption of cogeneration, thus benefitting the cogeneration equipment market.
The increasing number of renewable energy projects and abundant availability of natural gas in some parts of the world are also stoking growth of cogeneration equipment market.
On the downside, high initial investment and sophisticated technological requisites are limiting the adoption of cogeneration equipment across medium and small sized enterprises. Nevertheless, benefits of increased revenue generation in the long term as compared to conventional systems for electricity generation will bode well for the market’s growth.
