DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Outlook for the Global Energy & Renewable Resources Industry" report to their offering.
The global energy sector increased the production of primary energy from 5.5 Btoe in 1970 to almost 13.8 Btoe in 2015. The installed capacity for electricity generation reached 6.2 billion KW in the year 2015 and Asia Pacific gained relevance, currently representing 46% of that capacity. Coal, oil and other fossil fuels still represent a sizeable share of the matrix, with renewable sources representing only 19.2% of consumption.
The industry is highly regulated and concentrated in certain countries such as South Korea, where the leading utility group holds 92% of supply. The environmental impact of energy production remains a concern but experts are positive regarding the main emissions and performance indicators, which are expected to improve.
