Alternative Energy Status Report - NewNergy

Alternative Energy is the Biggest Business Revolution of Our Times

Whether you are an individual, small business or belonging to a large corporate, this is an exciting business and career opportunity you cannot afford to miss.

Energy is the largest industry in the world. Estimates of the total market size of all sectors of the energy and related industries are about $ 7 trillion. The energy industry thus constitutes almost 13% of the total world GDP of $ 55 trillion (2007 data, source: CIA). A very large number of businesses - small scale and large scale - are present in this industry.

According to market studies, investment in renewable energy is growing at 45% a year – essentially doubling every two years. This exceptional investing growth rate is expected to continue – and increase even faster – for the foreseeable future.

New Investments in Sustainable Energy  ($ billions)



Renewable energy - where it started, how it was and where it is right now

Efforts into renewable energy on an industrial scale started in the early 70s, after the First Oil Shock. Significant investments took place in solar, wind and biofuels. However, the succeeding decades of low oil prices effectively slowed down the accelerated deployment of and investing in renewable sources. Since 2000, interest in renewable energy has picked up again, as it is becoming increasingly clear that the days of cheap oil are past, and that the use of fossil fuels could endanger our planet because of global warming and climate change.

The early efforts, while they were not continued, however resulted in some progress, which is benefitting us now. For instance, electricity from Solar PV cost many times more in 1980 ( about $2 per KWh) than it costs today (about 25 US cents per KWh). The same is the case with electricity costs from wind energy, which have dropped from 35 cents per KWh in 1980 to about 8 cents per KWh in 2009.

Currently, it is felt that we are reaching a tipping point where renewable energy sources will start becoming cost competitive with fossil fuel sources, especially when the costs of pollution from fossil fuels are factored in, using techniques such as a tax on CO2 produced.

Driven by government mandates and incentives

An additional factor is likely to change the trend of investments in renewable energy from being a mere trickle a few years back into a flood - governmental support. All across the world – in developed, developing and under-developed countries – the governments have released mandates and programmes that show exceptional support for renewable energy sources. These governments are expected to provide significant incentives to renewable energy developers in the form of tax breaks, grants, subsidies and more.

Early mover advantage

Many businessmen, who have heard about the growth of renewable energy sources, are asking themselves an important question: “Should I get into it now, or should I wait until the industry is more mature, with fewer business uncertainties before setting up a venture?” In order words, they are asking themselves if there is a strong business case to start off their efforts right away. It is our strong belief that businesses should indeed make a start in their renewable energy efforts at the earliest. Businesses could start off today by making small scale and affordable investments while they test the waters, and could later expand once they gain traction. Depending on the vision and core strengths of a particular business, these investments could either be directly in producing renewable sources of energy, or in providing support to this fast-growing industry. Whichever path a business wishes to take, it is important that it takes the first steps now. Early movers could have significant advantages in this sunrise industry, many segments of which promise to grow from small scale niches into large business opportunities.

How can individuals and entrepreneurs benefit from this dramatic opportunity?

Alternative energy presents attractive opportunities to a wide range of people, including investors and entrepreneurs.
