There is no doubt that
the United States is a torch bearer in the renewable energy industry. In fact, 11.14 percent of the electricity produced in the US in the first six months of 2010, came from renewable energy resources itself. The US was the largest producer of electricity from wind power, solar power and geothermal sources in 2009, coming in second to
China in the overall production of renewable energy.
The US has one of the largest wind power installed capacities in the world, enough to provide nearly 10 million households across the country. Following wind, solar power also has a major share to contribute to the total electricity produced from renewable energy sources in the US.
President Obama has called for doubling the amount of renewable energy being used in the next three years particularly in order to meet the challenges of climate change and energy security.
In this industry scenario, Aruvians Rsearch carries out an in-depth analysis of the renewable energy sector in
the United States.
Aruvians research report analyzes the following renewable energy segments in the US - wind power, solar power, biomass power, biofuels, fuel cells, geothermal power, hydropower, distributed generation technologies, microgrids, combined heat and power/cogeneration, waste-to-energy, waste management, and the smart grid.
The report begins with an overview of the global energy industry in order to give the reader an idea of why the world requires renewable energy. An introduction to the US renewable energy industry includes an overview of the market, market trends, integration of renewable energy, and an analysis of the challenges facing the US energy industry as well as the factors driving the industry. The impact of the
Gulf of Mexico oil spill is discussed amongst the impacts on the industry.
We also include an analysis on why the US needs renewable energy.
