Research and Markets: The Market for Gas Power Plants in Europe (Analyst Version)

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/t9gqbh/the_market_for) has announced the addition of the "The Market for Gas Power Plants in Europe (Analyst Version) - Market Volumes - Projects - Strategies - Trends" report to their offering.

The Market for Gas Power Plants in Europe:

In the next five years, the European market for gas-fired power plants will grow like never before. About 160 gas-fired power plants will be constructed or extended between 2011 and 2015. The capacity of the European gas-fired power plants will increase by 66 GW - from about 176 GW to 242 GW, which represents a market volume of almost 43 billion euros.

The main reason for this boom is the fact that more and more fossil power plants will have to be replaced. This holds especially true for coal-fired power plants, which are in many cases not only out of date but also increasingly criticised due to their high CO2 emissions. The nuclear phase-out in Germany, which is one of the largest markets, will result in a growing need for alternatives as well. Furthermore, new power plants should compensate the unsteady electricity generation from renewable energy sources in a best possible way.

Against this background, most European states are planning to expand their electricity generation from natural gas considerably. The availability of this fuel increases with new pipelines and liquid natural gas terminals. This will change the natural gas business seriously. In the medium term, especially due to the growing liquid natural gas trading and the hence decreasing link between gas and oil prices, the gas price will be pressurised increasingly - and the construction of gas-fired power plants becomes a more attractive option.

In light of this development, ecoprog GmbH analysed the European market for gas-fired power plants in detail. This study includes our own market knowledge as well as the expertise of public administrations, business associations, operators and companies in the segment of plant construction.

The up to date analysis of figures, facts, estimations and trends in the European market for gas-fired power plants is of interest for manufacturers, suppliers, operators, disposal companies, business associations, research institutes and consultants.

The analyst version of the study The Market for Gas Power Plants in Europe 2011/2012 includes:

- A detailed analysis of the essential political, economic, managerial and technological trends in the segments of constructing and operating gas-fired power plants.

- A precise description of the present and the future market volumes by countries, up to and including 2015, based on a transparent and comprehensible methodology.

- A description and analysis of the competition, including the most important operators and plant manufacturers of gas-fired power plants in Europe.
