The World Wave & Tidal Market Report is a new report published by energy industry analysts Douglas-Westwood focusing on the current and future prospects, technologies and markets for the wave and tidal current stream sectors.
An emerging industry
The wave energy and tidal energy sectors are currently characterized by a large number of concept devices. An increasing number of these technologies have attracted investment and progressed to full-scale prototype testing. The first commercial projects are now appearing online.
This emerging industry offers potential to investors seeking to build or expand their renewable portfolio, as well as for supply chain companies. In common with other reports of Douglas-Westwood's acclaimed series, The World Wave & Tidal Market Report is aimed at executive readers. The report does not assume detailed technical knowledge of the subject.
The World Wave & Tidal Market Report provides a comprehensive and fully illustrated review of different technological concepts and devices employed in both existing and future projects. The report provides analysis of the impact of current and new technologies on the industry and identifies the key players in the business.
With the sector still in its infancy, there are significant issues that must be addressed and overcome. The report analyses and assesses potential solutions to issues such as costs, installation, operations & maintenance and investment. The different market mechanisms in each country are also identified and discussed.
Unique market forecasts
Using the same in-depth modeling process that is adopted for other reports in this series, the report presents worldwide market forecasts for both sectors for the 2009-2013 period. Five years historic data is included for comparison.
Douglas-Westwood has been tracking the sector since 2000 and has an in-house database covering all projects worldwide, which this report draws directly from. Each proposed wave & tidal current stream project worldwide is assessed to model unique and detailed market information.
