Expertise Areas

Frost & Sullivan's expertise in Power Generation research and consulting includes work in the following dynamic areas:

Critical Power

Critical-Power.pngIncreasing power demand combined with insufficient grid reliability drive power at both central and distributed levels, as well as long-term temporary power solutions.

Changing Business Models

Changing-Business-Models.pngMoving from a sole central power system to one that incorporates distributed power sources and energy storage technologies will have power generators rethinking strategies.

Market Globalization

Market-Globalization.pngAsian companies dominate global energy storage and solar PV markets, and are increasing their play in generator sets and other on-site power solutions.

Fossil Fuels Still Key

Fossil-Fuels-Still-Key.pngWhile much of Europe and the US move toward more renewable energy, natural gas is a growing fuel source and coal is still king in much of Asia.

IoT & Big Data Analytics

IoT-&-Cloud-Solutions.pngLeveraging IoT data from users and buildings, the grid, cities, and different power sources will be necessary to balance an increasingly complex energy landscape.

Sustainability and Carbon Footprint

Sustainability-and-Carbon-Footprint.pngMounting pressure on governments to reduce environmental emissions help grow renewable energy solutions as well as better emission controls for fossil power.

Increasing power demand combined with insufficient grid reliability drive power at both central and distributed levels, as well as long-term temporary power solutions.  Renewable energy continues to gain ground at a rapid pace, but fossil fuels still dominate the power landscape across many countries despite mounting environmental pressure.

Frost & Sullivan’s Power Generation program area focuses on power equipment, services, fuel mix, and renewable/alternative energy.
