Investments in new clean energy technologies grow the national economy and create new workplaces. From financing opportunities and funding, to training and workforce education, many energy companies create more energy jobs and make new partnerships. Also, many alternative energy companies are making new economies which contribute to more sustainable energy market. Further, it leads to the development of new alternative technologies and to the creation of new energy economy trends in the world.
Renewable energy plants create more jobs
Renewable energy is becoming more popular and more widely used (especially solar and wind energy), and this leads to the creation of new jobs. Alternative energy power policy as well as establishing of cleaner energy standards will boost energy generation and employment opportunities. Growth in the wind and solar power industries and plants leads to the creation of thousands of new jobs. It has become a new energy economy trend, especially in the USA and in the countries of the Far East.
Biofuel market set to grow
Biofuel (also known as “agro-fuel”) is the new green and completely clean fuel source. It is solid, liquid or gas fuel that is derived from different types of biomass. Its main advantage is that it is a renewable energy source – unlike petroleum or coal. Thanks to a new feat of science and engineering, bio-fuel has become competitive with oil. Moreover, it is expected large growth in bio-fuels production in this year as a new energy economy trend.
Clean energy patents will reach new highs
We all are familiar with the great importance of intellectual property. Number of new issued patents in any country per year indicates the growth of innovative development of that country. The substantial inflow of big money into the new green sectors will contribute to increasing the number of clean energy patents. Therefore, the increase in new clean energy patents is an energy economy trend. These patents relate to renewable energy sources such as solar and wind energy, as well as hydroelectric, tidal and geothermal energy. Sure, global politics and the world economy have a major impact of all these developments and researches.
Cheapest green cars
Many electric and green cars are more expensive than their regular gas counterparts. However, many of the green car factories in the world are still working to reduce the price of these vehicles. Some electric cars, such as Mitsubishi i-MiEV, Chevrolet Spark EV, Nissan Leaf or Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid, have very reasonable prices – from 25,000 to 30,000 dollars. In 2015, the energy economy trend is a further drop in the price of hybrid and green cars.
More energy efficient communication networks
Many reputed communication companies will invest big money in the further development and creation of more energy efficient network this year. For example, Alcatel-Lucent (global telecommunication company from France) will invest in their networks to make them 1.000 times more energy efficient. They have also launched the “Green Touch” – a five year program. Apart from them, other well-known communication companies (such as AT&T, China Mobile, and others) will also invest in more energy efficient networks. So, this strives to be the global energy economy trend.
